  • There is a woman in my office who does not practice good hygiene. This is putting it politely. Her body odor lingers 10 minutes after she walks by. Many of the women have come to me and asked that i talk to her about this problem with her since i supervise the department.

    This is a touchy situation. I think the time has come to tell her. Any advice on the best way to approach her on this?

  • ask her if she stepped in dog poo...after she looks at her shoes, you'll have to point out that it must just be her stinking like crap. or, have her call me, i'll be glad to tell her she stinks like death.

  • i actually had to deal with this exact scenario as a supervisor in the military....it will feel more awkward than it really is,.,,,,  but just tell the person that people have mentioned that some others in the office are offensive with their strong body odor and you are asking ALL office personnel to ensure that they are clean and fresh daily for work.  You can say this in passing...and if it still happens the next day.....unleash the stinky dogs of war...second warning is the last.....if you are the stinky kid on the bus......you got to go.

  • Honesty is best....have a group of concerned, but loving/caring people, talk with her in private.  She may not know she stinks.  BUT, do it in a way that does not cause her to loose face.

  • I agree with doc. Tell her in private, she may have no clue that it's her that smells...

    ....then consider telling her outside, on a windy day, and position yourself such that her funk is blowing away from you.

    thanks...it'll be a public service, pay it forward kinda thing, plus i have free long distance so it won't cost me nothing.
  • I tried to even google an answer to this question..

    I got things like.. How do you tell someone at work they smell like a$$ crack..
    Tape a bar a soap to their cardoor keyhole, they should get the message..

    Another approach was make a joke about it.. an example..
    "Make a joke about it. Like when I was pregnant, I could smell my brothers a mile away. So, I would say something like: oh, I knew you were coming. I could smell you. Then just giggle. It can be taken either way. If you're a conscientious person, you'll sniff your pitts to make sure you don't stink. If you're not a conscientious person and don't care, then you shouldn't care if you hurt their feelings. BTW: my brothers didn't get the hint so I had to tell them "Hey, I'm pregnant and can smell you and you're making me nauseous. Please shower"

    The best answer...

    It's not a comfortable conversation to have, but you just have to be honest while being as kind as possible.

    I had to have this convo with an employee at the last job I had (I was a supervisor). We actually got along well and that's why I was chosen to do it. I just had to sit her down and tell her that it was absolutely no reflection on her character, that she was a very good person who did a great job for us, but she needed to improve her personal hygeine or, if she had a medical condition that was contributing to the odor problem, she needed to get it treated. I bragged up her good qualities while explaining the good outcome of keeping herself cleaner and why she needed to do it - things like self respect, meeting the public, making a good impression, etc.

    If this is someone you have a personal relationship with, do the same thing, but tell them nicely that you're pointing it out because you care, before someone else is a real jerk about it.

  • I can recall when this same "Complaint" was leveled at me.

    Truth was later that they found out she had learned I made about 35% more then she did and she was trying to have me ousted. I suspected this was due to her (But not the why till later) and the funny thing was she actually asked me (While buying a house) if I thought they should have "Mortgage Insurance" (In case of lost job) I told her "No I am sure the company was doing quite well (Silly me) and so they'd bought the house sans the safety net.

    2 months later the axe fell for us all...I kind of chuckle now recalling that, As I don't really believe in "Karma" but I do think "What goes around, comes around"

    But in conclusion, my supervisor approached me and I did and still do shower everyday. Some people do lie about this as a way to get rid of someone with a false accusation. However, in this case, it sounds like she's really smelling bad.

  • Thanks for all the replies. Here's an update, i did it! I quickly and discretely pulled her into the boardroom (felt a bit like the apprentice - accept i didn't get to say YOU'RE FIRED!)

    Went something like this:
    Me: There is a matter that must be addressed. Please know that this has no effect on the quality of your work but it must be brought to your attention. You have an odor.
    Her: Excuse me? (thought she was gonna hit me)
    Me: This conversation is equally as uncomfortable for me as it is for you.
    Her: OMG i am so embarrassed
    Me: Nothing to be embarrassed about, let's just get it taken care of.
    ....and we left the room

    OMG i wanted to die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need a beer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  huh huh huh huh

  • OMG

    At least you got it out of the way



    :-*

  • She'll be okay... and i hope you will be too sad so hard to do what must be done..

  • Get her started and going in the right direction...slip her one of these Platinums... "It'll be our little secret"

    That a good one. 2 yrs ago i had a co-worker  with the same problem. The funny thing is the staff would complain about it but management couldn't smell it. One day the girl that sit next to her told her that she smell funny and the girl with the odor said she had a foot problem but we all knew that was not the problem. It was body odor. It was sour smelling. I told the girl that sits next to her about this video. http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1107250/rant_on_stink_people/    I like the omgwthitsp.

    LOL that's hilarious. I love it!
    There is another woman at work that has very long toe nails. Poor grooming is also an issue at work. I call her wolverine, secretly of course. They are very long, painted pink and she wears open toe shoes. I'm thinkin' if you can bend down to paint those toes you can bend down to cut em down. Thank God she is not my employee! I don't think I could get through that conversation without dying laughing. 
  • ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  • I had a similar situation when i was in high school. I worked at the concession stand our local pool with another girl. The stand was so small we would have turn sideways just to pass each other back and fourth.

    It would be 110 in the shade and this girl smelled to the high heavens! Everyday i would walk to the pool i would say "today's the day i am going to tell her"! I would get to the pool and start to tell her and i couldn't do it!

    Finally one day i got up the courage and said....do you take vitamins? She looks at me kinda funny and says "no why do you ask"?  I said oh because you have a scent about you that smells like medicine!!!!! Ok i know, i know.......but hey i was only 15 at the time! Thats as close as i could get to telling her!

  • Lucky she wasn't around my daughter, my daughter kept things in her purse for just such circimstances not for herself but for others.. she'd a went in her purse without saying a word and handed whomever a stick of deordorant, "here put some of this on".. she's done it so many times, breath.. she will hand you a mint in a quick minute.. "here take this" One time one of her little friends she had to hand some deordorant to, had later left came over the next day reeeeeking of cologne, it was choking us, it was so strong it was eating the oxyegen, he had to of used the whole bottle on himself.. we had to make him stay outside.. lol

    Once on the bus some man sat down next to us and started speaking to us, both at the same time we put our hands to our noses, the man got all loud called us rude because we wouldn't speak back.. finally as we held our hands over our noses..we said naaaah it's not us thats rude it's your breath thats rude, all the people on the bus were kind of chuckling.. we were mad.. bad breath like that is offensive...

  • for the last six or so hours I've been trying to take care of my hygiene issues.  I have not had a washer for my clothes for I can't even remember how long now.  I've got nowhere to go or anyone to see most of the time, so days go by and go by some more without my needing to worry about offending anyone.  My daughter is driving up here Wednesday and I've got enough dirty clothes to fill her trunk and it is huge.  Plus when I couldn't find any underwear, well I found some.  They used to be my Mom's.  She would say "well, that's the height of something!"
    So, for about 2 weeks I've been simmering this plan to wash some clothes in my bathtub.  Today was that day.  But first-  I had to clean the bathtub-ugh!  It is really hard and painful to do physical stuff requiring hands and stamina, and like 110 degrees in the bathroom.  Luckily I had scrubbing bubbles.  Cool.  So I sprayed the tub down really good, then let it "sit".  For like 3 hours...so I had to do that part over.  Then I had to get in and scrub the dead skin, etc. (eeewwwwww) that I normally don't look so closely at in the tub without glasses on, AWAY.  Ouch.  About an hour later, I knew I had to clean myself next or I'd never get clothes "washed" around in the tub.  I gathered up a few things for a couple of days worth of anything to wear, and gave it all a good soak.   Then I had to get back in the tub with the clothes, stomping on them like I was making wine.  Pretty quickly I had to drain and redo and repeat.  Then  I figured they could soak for awhile so they did.
    About an hour ago I double rinsed, and the water is still all eeeewwwwyy-looking, so I did more stomping, moving things around so dirty water could drain while I took each piece one by one and did the best I could to get the soap and unclear water out.  I have been sitting in here for a LONG time with them doing a final "rinse"-sitting in hot water.  I jut now quit sweating and got it cooled down in the bedroom.
    Tomorrow I will stomp one more time (please,only one more), try hard to wring out some of the excess water, and go hang these on the line.
    I like that part-which is good as I have no dryer either.  I figure by 7am it will be so darn hot outside, I'll have clothes by 8am.  Wet clothes are heavy!
    If they still smell tomorrow, it's just going to have to get a dose of my Yves St. Laurent "Champagne".  Gosh don't ever spray that stuff on more than one tiny squirt.  It smells marvelous if you can stop yourself from thinking "just one more spray,probably".  They will be smelling my sweetness all the way to San Antonio!

    So what do you do to the co-worker who comes in smelling WAY TOO cologned/perfumed up?  

  • Imagin-funny about your daughter.  I am oblivious to most girly things- my dad was always taking me out hunting and fishing so who cares if my tennis shoes are not sparkly white.  I can seriously not keep things from getting all over me-paint, mud, stickers, you name it.  I never had have the neat freak inside me come anywhere away from the back of the closet shelf.
    So when my Mom died, she had all this stuff-shoe polish, lotion, moisturizers, enough stamps for 5 years, enough staples for 20.  It was all supposed to go with me, so I was trying to give it to my sister, nieces, friends.  My sister comes up to me and hands me some white shoe polish and I'm like, 'oh, no thanks!  you take it".  Awhile later she's back trying to give it to me again. This goes back and forth and I'm like, what's wrong with her?  She'll use it!  I'll just have it still sitting here when someone has to come and sort through my stuff!
    Then my daughter just FINALLY said "She is SAYING you need to CLEAN your shoes!!!" duh... I was, like, "what? really? oh,why didn't she just say that?" 
    I would not have been embarrassed at all, instead I looked like a freakin' dumb ass slob and went and cleaned my shoes and put the pretty white shoe polish on.  Two years later,uhm, it's in the drawer in the bathroom, waiting for it to be passed down to the next generation. 
    My mom was always so clean and had nice clothes, towels, sheets, everything as nice as it could be.  I totally missed out on that-every darn nice towel and sheet and whatever that I really wanted to keep nice has paint on it, or mildew, or, maybe got used for something like cleaning the oilpan...
    I found a B-Day card I sent my mom-probably in my twenties.  "MOM!  You are really NEAT"...open it up..."and I should know because I'm just a big mess".  By the way, does your daughter have some extra deodorant cuz I can't find mine...it was there a couple of months ago!

  • Chilly.. that is a job and a half, i have sympathy for the women of the days without washing machines, back then they had huge families, no tubs with running water, either they traveled up & down the paths to the wells, or take the laundry to the creeks.

    I once had to do this way back when my daughter was very young, so broke and no washer, worried about clean clothes for school. Stomping on clothes for the week, the wringing and rinsing, back breaking and muscle aching, after the wringing in the tub, we'd get a towel and roll the clothes up she'd take one side and i'd take the other and we'd twist and twist til it wouldn't twist no more to get out whatever water was left, then we'd hang them on the balcony for further drying.. but not the panties we'd just hang them inside, didn't want the neighbors looking at our undies lol..

  • OMG, I'm not supposed to hang my panties on the line outside?  I hate them hanging on those little clothespins with a coathanger top-my mom always put her nightgowns and stockings there hanging from the shower-rod.
    I never had to rinse out my stockings-completely torn up with runs the minute I touched them.
    Sometimes my undies and everything else stays on the line for about a week.  My washer didn't do a good job anyway, so if it rained, I was happy because everything looked/smelled much better.
    I belong out here in the country.  Just need a horse to ride to town for cocacolas and I'd be sooooo much better off.
