I dunno how this tyranny-of-the-unscented got started, but by now
there's one in every office. Your GF met hers. Don't sweat it (heh).

Seems to me that if so many folks are so sensitive to so many
identifiable scents, they're also sensitive to 100 unidentifiable
airbornes that surround each of their colleagues. Where does this
end, Bubble-boy Nation? Gattaca?

Social stigma sorts out the egregious offenders. Still can't cope?
Wear a mask already. Seriously. If you're unable to ride a bus or
plane (where you don't get to boot the guy next to you), why does
your ailment become everyone's problem in an office? Makes no
sense. Here's your respirator, now back to work.

In the meantime, breast-feed your kids, make them play outside,
slather them in peanut butter, and for God's sake throw out the
five-year stash of anti-microbial wipes you're hoarding in your bomb
shelter. There's stuff in your colon that'd kill you in ten seconds
if it entered your blood stream. There's no solution for that.
We're animals. Celebrate it or wheeze.

And don't use hollow bullets. They're bad for you. More trans-fats
than a Twinkie.


ps. If girls stop smelling like girls, I'm so outta here.
