Have you ever heard the phrase “Nice scent - must you marinate in it?”
I’ve got a coworker who wears so much perfume that as of yesterday afternoon, I had to leave early because of the migraine setting in because of it. I’m unable to see out of one eye (rubbing my head from migraine and scratched my eye). My Neurologist (whom I saw yesterday for painkillers) is ready to write me a note saying I need to work from home. The person who is causing this, however, is a friend of mine. I don’t want to hurt her feelings, going to HR is not an option because my HR person is an idiot. Do I go to her boss? Do I go to her? What do I say? I can’t work at work anymore. I’m sick to my stomach, I have horrible headaches, and I throw up daily thanks to her “scent”. I just don’t know how to handle this.
Please - someone give me a solution to this nightmare? I’ll even throw in a pretty please.
