We don't typically read the business section of the Sunday Times, and we always thought we'd be OK without it. But apparently it contained some recent advice we don't know how we've survived without. Thankfully, when a news story falls through the cracks, Simon Dumenco picks it up for a column he calls Media Guy. In this case, he calls our attention to a "Career Couch" column about coworkers with BO:
The column ended with this helpful exchange:
Q: How do you know you're not the one offending noses?
A: You can take certain obvious precautions, of course. Bathe regularly and, if you choose, use deodorant ...
Thank you, New York Times! (Next time in "Career Couch": If your nose runs while you're in a meeting, consider wiping it on a tissue or, if you choose, on the back of your sleeve ...)
We've got to start reading the paper more carefully.
