    you work in office too.quite sure your colleagues dont like HR department.

    it's a s job.
    Actually, this is a job for HR, if targetting her directly is not an option. I hate HR, but if it's their job, they better do it.

    Another way is to tell your boss, if the "air pollution" problem is not fixed, you start working remote from home. Btw, it's your boss's job to talk to HR to get polution problem fixed.

    Have this colleague who stinks of onions, garlic and curry powder PLUS an undescribable odour that is so bad he leaves a trial of smell everywhere he goes. Wherever in the office I go, I know if he was there. There was this time, he was standing under the aircon outlet and he raised his arms to cool down after going out for lunch... My eyes teared a bit. It was an unspeakable horror. Until today, I still don't have the guts (or out of being polite) to ask him to do something about his BO.
    Suggest gently to him that there is a medical breakthrough recently... may work for him.

    Also, Jeanie, mebbe your colleague also suffers from BO, that's why she's trying to cover up with perfume??

    Not really. There is not enough smoke generated to set it off. Another option is aromatheraphy burner which my colleague uses to escape the smell. But that is just too unmanly to have in the office. Its okay for him because everyone knows he plays for the other team.

    I became the bad guy & just told them frankly that their perfume was too overwhelming & giving me a headache..

    Sometimes drastic measures are required in drastic situations
    glad you know how i feel.
    i like perfumes myself, but definitely not to the extent of using it like how i shoot weddings...just ZUA....(sounds familiar? )

    3) Do step 1 & 2 and run away.

    4) find a temp staff for 1 day, tell the temp staff to say "wah, ur perfume very strong." then ask the temp staff to go home. Let ur colleagues spread the news that temp staff quit within 1 hour.

    these has to be the best suggestions so far.

    but about the nosebleed..what if she thinks i'm a les?wouldnt it boost her ego?

    sometimes i wonder what's worse.

    BO or empowering perfume eau de poison?

    i know how you feel.
    BO, i usually tell my male colleagues DIRECTLY.i think it's because they know my character and me well, and we very arh one.

    but for this office s, i dont want to do that cos who knows i may get 10 daggers in my back the next day.

    it's a killing fields out here man...

    there's another thing i couldnt stand about her....she has manfrotto for legs.
    (want to guess what that means?)
