Federal Police deemed ‘ugly’

By ExFeds - 23 October 2011 26

A POLICEMAN who claimed he was left an emotional mess after an internal email suggested he was “ugly” has lost his compensation bid.

Australian Federal Police officer Stephen “Marto” Martin said he was so distressed by a group email linking it to a news article, titled “ugly men make more sperm during sex, study suggests“.

The story, which suggested that women wanting to get pregnant should find themselves an ugly man, was sent to the married officer and 15 colleagues.

Martin said he was gripped by “panic attacks, sleeplessness and tearfulness” after receiving the email, a tribunal was told.

This man carries a gun daily?

Please see a counsellor, they’ll make you feel much more comfortable with your rugged, manly appearance.

I guess he is armed, however, what’s sad about this is the real reason this man went off on stress leave is not reported, given its not humorous. See the AAT decision.

According to the report, he does not deny sending “bad taste” e-mails himself or being involved in several practical jokes on workmates. I think he hasn’t learnt the lesson, don’t dish out what you can’t take yourself.

This retarded douche-bag can just join the queue marked ‘real world’. Looks like his little princess act has backfired … Time to get on with his dead end $90k a year job cleaning up the trash.

panic attacks, sleeplessness and tearfulness

This guy is a policeman right? Not a celebrity hair dresser?

Maybe that can be his next career.

Never make a pretty woman your wife.
If you want to be happy your whole life through,
Get an ugly girl to marry you./o

It’s strange that someone called Steve Martin lacks a sense of humour. Just don’t tell him that his gun belt makes him bum look big…

I thought this was a joke at first, then, as I read on- I realised that it was not…..Stephen Martin-you are the DumbArse of the year. 😀

PS Ugly men make more sperm because they don’t have sex often enough, me thinks.

practical joke played on him in December 2008 by workmates who advertised his jet-ski for sale on the internet without his knowledge. The advertisement included his name and telephone number, and led to numerous phone calls from members of the public.

Ummmm… I really, seriously, would rather not have this played out on me….

Yes, I’m probably a princess – ugly one at that.

You think that’s funny, a good friend of mine used to play classic practical jokes on us from time to time. As she worked in real estate she had a lot of access to those ‘Open home’ signs you see around the place. Imagine people turning up to your front door unsolicited and wanting a look inside your place! We got her back though by placing a personal ad in the ‘Asian dates’ section of a dating website. She got a few calls….
