Yesterday was a bit of a write-off for me.
I went in to work, as usual, and the day was just getting underway. Suddenly everything changed.
Someone walked into my workplace wearing a perfume that didn’t agree with me.
From here everything went quickly downhill. My stomach did some kind of backflip. My eyes watered. My head felt like it might split open. My lungs ached as if I had been running uphill in sub-zero temperatures. And, worst of all, I just couldn’t explain to my co-workers what was wrong. It was as if my brain had slowed down – I couldn’t put my thoughts into words. I felt as if my entire body was betraying me.
I lost a day of work because someone wore perfume.
And I’m frustrated.
Don’t make my workplace unfit for me to work in – please keep your scented products to yourself.
