'A university library worker claims he was accused of harassment because he typed an email in all capital letters.
Grandfather Stephen Poole said he sent the email after 'snowflake' bosses told him to work longer hours with just one week's notice.
He finished off the email with the words 'YOU DO IT' before being ordered days later to see the library's manager.
Mr Poole, 65, quit his job in disgust after being told that using all capital letters in the email was the same as shouting at or harassing a colleague.
'I simply tried to make my point in an email and typed the capital letters to make a point to a line manager and it was as if I was a Mr Angry effing and blinding at people,' he told The Sun.
Mr Poole said he had enjoyed his 'little job' of four years at Birmingham's Aston University library — for which he earned £8.50 an hour.
'I was called in by the library joint manager who said my line manager had complained about the email,' he added.
'And to make matters worse the library joint manager told me at the meeting she had also asked human resources about the capitals and they had told her they could be interpreted as shouting at a colleague.''
