For real? I'd talk to HR. And remember, there are laws against recourse.
@Letmecode my male coworker would wear pheromone cologne and then when helping me debug stand really close to me (at a normal distance for sharing one computer, if you aren't trying to give someone extra space). My brain gets all fuzzy while trying to figure the issue out from the stuff. I end up feeling super dumb and it kinda zaps my concentration. It's not totally impossible or whatever, just annoying.
I think he was just putting it on in the morning in the hopes of it affecting his dating at night, totally forgetting that he sometimes works with women. He has a girlfriend now and it seems like it's mostly stopped.
@Neotelos I don't think it was intentional/targeted at me. More personal space would be good, but most of my coworkers stand pretty pretty close. Nothing creepy, just a little annoying. Social skills aren't their strong suit.
lilaczen655yHehe as the only girl in my team, I totally get this. It is the natural pheremone (Body Odour) I am subjected to in elevators, small meeting rooms etc
Nasal Assault 😣
Doesbitt really do anything but smell disgusting? Or does it have a negative effects due pheromones?
