So Every Friday (food related)

I work out our downtown office and there is a guy there who's family owns an indian restaurant. So every Friday they order from his family's restaurant. It's a big production and the food smells are very pungant (sp)..

I'm not a fan of Indian Food but heck if you like it, good for you.

It's just that for hrs, the smells linger. I go home smelling like the food.

They eat it at their desks not in a lunchroom or anything and I don't want to say anything to them. It's their space too..

They always ask me if I want to order, but I always say no.

The smell actually makes my stomach hurt..(well, almost everything makes my stomach hurt)

I mention this here and now because in about 10 minutes the parade will start...not looking forward to it..

I lived in an apartment in Jersey above an Indian family. I hated opening my windows because the smell of curry would waft up into my apartment Chat Icon

I'm not a big fan of curry either. Its a very strong scent and I can tolerate it for only a short time.

Im not sure if this will help. But sometimes when I smell and overwhelming scent, I'll spritz a tissue with perfume and keep it at my side. I'll occassionally sniff it when needed.

Re: So Every Friday (food related)

would you be brave enough to talk to HR about it? or is this guy HR?

any food that is potent should not be eaten @ the desk - especially when a lunchroom is available. see if you can involve them w/o looking like the bad guy.

You know I would, but I'm only here on Fridays and not every Friday.

I have tried the food, it just doesn't agree with me.

I have all kinds of gastric issues so I'm not normal, but it's still annoying..

I don't want to cause a problem.
