Oh the horrors

I work for a large corporation. We tend to be a little over the top PC. My boss is never PC. She never holds her tongue and she cracks me up. We have an abnormally creepy gentleman that sits on our floor. I about fell out of my chair when she forwarded me this email exchange

Please don’t spray air freshener in the break room where there’s uncovered coffee. I walked in there to get coffee and my papers off the copier and I literally walked face first into a fog of it and inhaled it. I don’t know if that’s why I taste it in the coffee or if it’s because some landed in the exposed pots. But either way, suffice it to say that it doesn’t taste as good as it smells!


I sit here all day and “inhale” a variety of things, most of them not pleasant, but please know I didn’t spray a fog into the uncovered coffee… but just like the breakroom smells that migrate over to me, I am sure the airfresher does what it is supposed to do, …which is break up the odors. If you smell some of it, that’s kinda the point to cover up some of the odors that come out of there every day all day. If you would like to sit here some time with me during the day to actually experience hours and hours of the distasteful smells, odors that often burn my eyes and turn my stomach, (and the loud noices and discussions that go on in there about personal issues etc) and discuss let me know.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA – I am so going to eat fish tomorrow and speak loudly about my birth experience. Seriously I would love to know what odor burns his eyes. I have been there when he sprays the room spray, it pretty much prompts an instant migraine for me.

popcorn is the smell that lingers...especially if you let it burn.
