I don’t need to change my hair routine for a coworker — Ask a Supervisor


replace: I don’t need to change my hair routine for a coworker

Bear in mind the letter-writer final week who didn’t need to change her hair routine for a coworker who appeared bothered by the scent of her shampoo? Right here’s the replace.

I requested Jane to present me a name when she had a spare second however in fact she confirmed up in my workplace as a substitute. I instructed her I had gotten her electronic mail and that I believe what she’s smelling is my shampoo, and I defined that it’s the one one I’ve discovered that works effectively with my hair. I requested if telephone calls or emails could be an okay workaround, or assembly in a greater ventilated space for issues requiring assembly in-person. I additionally requested if it was giving her complications or affecting her respiratory and stated if it was inflicting well being issues I might work on discovering a brand new shampoo.

She stated it wasn’t affecting her bodily and admitted she has a damaging affiliation with the scent. She was on a cross nation practice trip, somebody in her automotive had a horrible physique odor downside, and another person drowned the automotive in a really comparable fragrance to (unsuccessfully) cowl it up. Now the scent robotically bothers her and she or he additionally by some means worries she smells like B.O.! We ended up laughing about the entire thing and Jane truly apologized for the e-mail and stated she was having a very tough day when she despatched it. That was sudden and good.

I believe we’re in a greater place and we’re going to maintain on conserving on. I’m hopeful that now we’ve talked it out the theatrical hand-waving and face-making will cease. What a wild (practice) trip!

Thanks on your response, and in addition to the commenters. Studying by feedback actually helped me understand that Jane may very well be each obnoxious AND have an actual difficulty. Some commenters weren’t charitable and made some fairly gross leaps and assumptions about me or my motivations (I solely talked about my most cancers for context re: having a model new hair texture; I do know my shampoo isn’t a medical want!) however truthfully these helped too. It made me roll my eyes and understand that this was not as large of a deal as they had been making it or I had made it in my head, and I finally simply wanted to speak to Jane. So thanks to all.
