Daniel Cambridge, 27, was dismissed from Waterstones' warehouse after 35 complaints to management about him breaking wind.
Daniel insists his flatulence problem is a common side-effect of the antidepressant Citaloprama, which he has been taking for the past three weeks.
He has even highlighted that fact in the manufacturer's leaflet that comes with the prescription drug.
Daniel said yesterday: "I'm really annoyed. I can't believe I've been dismissed for passing wind. I know I'm not going to get my job back and I really liked it.
"I could understand them getting rid of me for fighting or something, but for passing wind is ridiculous.
"To me it's like having a disability and you wouldn't get rid of somebody with one arm or leg."
