Coworkers and food smells
I happen to have a desk about twenty feet away from the lunchroom and bathrooms, and someone had some sort of smelly fish for breakfast this morning... and obviously the smell spread all over the office, so now we have people running around and spraying cans of deodorizer in the air.
Generally I don't have an issue with what people eat, but this was a really sickening way to start the day. This isn't the first time this has happened -- a few months ago, someone burnt their microwave popcorn in the morning and smelled up the office in a similarly unpleasant fashion. What's a nice way to address the food smell issue to my coworkers?
