People who bring in odorous know who you are

By Why Me Worry? ·
Even though this thread is not technology related, I would like to know the weirdest and stinkiest things that people you work with have brought in to work and ended up stinking up the office with. On my floor, there is one woman who eats the same damned thing every day. I don't know what it is but it smells like month old fish in curry sauce. The really worst part about it is when she heats it up in the microwave and the smell spreads throughout the entire floor, making everyone sick and nausious. I once had to go outside because my eyes starting burning, I started to feel sick to my stomach, and came close to vomiting all over my cubicle. I know HR has policies about certain things, but why don't they have policies on bringing fish and other stinky foods to the office? god forbid we have a client or vendor come in and the place smells like a fish market or some Indian restaurant with the smell of curry permeating the air..lord help us!

I once worked at a place where we had this 400lb BBW cow who would put a small desk fan under her desk to ventilate the area between her tree trunk legs. Her body odor was bad enough, but she had to spread the stench around by letting a fan **** between her legs and carry the odor to the rest of the floor.

Fish and chips are traditionally eaten out of newspaper after the pub and while walking home.

NOTHING in the world tastes better! So for Essex girl to drop her chips...

Does the joke make sense, now?
