My boss stinks!!! (literally)

I have a male boss and every time I go in his office it stinks! It smells like a teenage boys room! He also has to use my computer at times and I'll see him cough or sneeze into his hand and then touch the stuff on my desk. Every time he leaves I wipe everything down with anti-bacterial wipes. It drives me crazy how unaware people are that they are spreading germs! One time my boss had a cold, then someone else in my office got it, then I got it and now my 6 month old son has a cold. I know it's impossible to stay completely away from germs, but I'd like to see more people TRY not to spread their germs around. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone else deal with a stinky/germ-y person?!?!?!

  • Slip a bottle of hand sanitizer and deodorant onto his desk. Maybe he will get the message.

  • I had a coworker that had to wear adult diapers I was ok with that, but we had to tell him every time he had an accident even when the "accidents" were so stinky that you might barf and even after we have told him he still will wait up to 20 min to go to the bathroom and we were not really busy and the bathroom where right outside the office everyone had a lysol at hand, it was that one time another guy said that he had to to go to the restroom while this guy was there changing his diaper and he told us he left and did not washed his hands and seems to be usual for him not to wash, the worst was that we had a big lunch room at work and at one time we had a pizza party and this guy wanted to be the first to open the pizza boxes we stop him and he got angry and left saying we were a bunch of SOB's.

  • After a while no one was ok with him but there was nothing we could do about it because it would be seen as discrimination against him.
