He smells of B.O., my newest colleague.
Its unfortunate as he’s otherwise a nice chap, seems a decent designer, and I don’t mind having someone else in the room (even though my Shrodinger’s Cat Napping opportunities will be necessarily curtailed by his presence)… but he smells.
Not even of fresh sweat – it is, afterall hot and humid here in Summer – but the stale acrid smell of B.O.
Really, can people not smell themselves? I mean, I know I’m obsessively clean but even people who are just averagely clean don’t smell of B.O.
And he looks clean. Dresses well. And he has a girlfriend… how does she allow him anywhere near her?
I’m not asking for a colleague who smells like dewy rose petals picked at dawn or anything… just an absence of noticeable odour would be good.
