    apparently it's not only me who's complaining.

    aiyo.
    help ah help ah!
    Just bear with it for a couple more weeks. It's not worth being the hero. Someone will definitely lose it and blast at her; then all will clap (in their heart).

    Another easy way is to ask delivery guys to make fun of her by tipping them off in advance.

    If it all dont work, create a secret admirer by sending her flowers. A tag in it would point her to change to something milder and easier on "his" nose. This could drive her nuts if she thinks she is really that hot.

    Oh btw is she also in clubsnap? I would be dammed.

    alittle slap is one thing but if you end up paying thru the nose for something silly that could have been prevented...tell me if you can live with that? As i said you do option 1 you will publicly humiliate her and she can sue you all for it and get alot of $$$ esp if she gets a good lawyer. A little diplomacy goes a long way and saves your alot of grief in the long run. Besides just because you may not like the woman it doesn't mean that you have the right to humiliate her. there's such a thing as karma...

    i've sort of decided to live with it.
    my colleague went to cold storage to get some nicely packed charcoal for absorbance of the overwhelming scent.

    they've sort of given up asking her our for lunch together.i just hope she gets the hint but i seriously doubt so.
    oh well, mutual tolerance in a office i guess.
    i'm lucky to have my own room where i can close my door.

    there's such a thing as fair comment.

    in any case, jeanie has decided on option 3. good for her.

    yes there's also such a thing as interpretation as well. Fair comment only protects you from defamation not harassment. which is what part of what she could claim if ts went with the public humiliation option. option 3 is not the best since its just ignoring the problem and hoping that it'll go away on its own. The best thing she can do is to have a polite talk with her colleague with their other co workers present. Keeping things polite, civil and open is the best.

    maybe so but i don't find the suggestion of public humiliation funny in any form whatsoever...

    Send her the link to this thread

    I think the smell might not be that bad, just that it feels worse as many people dislike her.
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    yeap which is why i decided to add the precaution. my response isn't directed at anyone in particular just everyone who's read this thread to let them know what could happen if they decide on going the humiliation route.

    relax guys.it's just kopishop talk.
    i solely started this thread ...ok lah...got to admit.i just want to vent/bitch/slam.
    i dont think i'll do anything about it.

    talking to her is out of the question.
    for a gal to talk to another gal about her grooming, it's so sensitive.
    what if i told her about her scent and she retaliates by saying my dress sense sucks?
    never ending.

    and never never underestimate the wraith of a woman scorned.

    chil ya?milo ice on me?
