I know smelling, stinky passengers have been discussed in Civil Av not too long ago... but what about smelling, stinky co-workers?

Earlier this morning my boss came into our office and set up his laptop right behind me. At that moment I started to feel a strange smell, as if a skunk had walked through the door. I looked back and saw the guys who share the office holding their breaths  gasp , but still I was unable to identify the source of the odor. Even though I have a cold, the damn smell kept getting into my nostrils.

Well, the laptop crashed and I went to get the IT girl to help us. She had a rather nauseated look when I told her about it ("You mean your boss is in your office?!"  yuck  ), took a deep breath, and came with me. When we entered the office, the stench had grown stronger, and it was even worse at my desk... In fact, the source was right behind me, working in his laptop!  eek 

We were relieved when the boss went out for lunch, but the stink wouldn't go... I had to spray air freshener all over the place before I fainted  faint  .

And to think he will resume whatever he was doing in our office right after lunch...  vomit 

What do you a.nutters say about it?


What do I know, I'm just an 'immature troublemaker with only a passing interest in aviation' (or so they say)

A number of years ago, a woman whom had an office near mine used to severly overdose on perfume (not cheap stuff either) and it used to make me almost puke. She was an attractive woman but she didn't know how to use high quality perfumes or had a bad nose. Finally, her office mate got on her case and finally got her to be more careful in her perfume use, maybe by threating to throw her out their 11 floor window.

That's why I carry a spray bottle of bleach with me. Either the bleach will blind and maim the offender or it'll at least make them go away.

Be glad you have a tenth floor where you are, at least the air is more likely to circulate at that height!  Wink

As for my fellow students, very few of them smell a bit. It's nothing unbearable either, most often it's that "studied all night & didn't have breakfast" smell. That of course excludes the smell people had in their clothes when they had just finished macroscopic anatomy class for the day and sat next to me during the subsequent lecture. Let's just say the smell didn't get better as the bodies got older.

I'd say that if it's as serious as you say it is then it is a real problem. If you had customers visiting the place it wouldn't be good.

It's really antisocial and your boss needs to be told. Although pretty embarrassing bringing it up I'm sure in the long run he'll be grateful for it.

Tell him about it. Use tact or don't, but make sure he knows to clean his ass. One of my professors is an herbal nerd and takes garlic pills for certain ailments. So his sweat stinks, his breath stinks, his ass stinks...etc. I sit front and center, and it was really affecting my concentration. I asked if I could speak to him after class in private, but he insisted that we speak during class. Fortunately my objections were seconded by the rest of the class. He has chosen a more traditional means of regulating himself now. And he wonders why he hasn't had a second date in years?!? gasp
