Scented Candles In The Workplace – Yes or No?
If you burn candles that smell like oak, roses, vanilla bean, apple cinnamon, perfume or cinnamon - I hope you work in a candle store. Other than that, I am definitely against burning candles in the workplace.
I work in an environment where candles are allowed. For the most part, people that burn candles here at the station have offices and I do not sit near them. Don't get me wrong, I love my co-workers, just not the candle scents. I can go from feeling great to instant headache from one whiff of a candle.
There is one person here at the station, that will burn candles in a public area. I will make up a name, Chris Monroe. Miss Chris burns candles in a production room that is shared. I walked in there earlier today and about barfed. I am used to Chris smelling like cigarettes, but orange blossom delight does not smell good on him or that prod room.
I have A LOT of weird quirks. However, I don't think this one is out of the ordinary. I can't be the only one who is sensitive to candles, am I? I would like to preface that I have no problem whatsoever with Tony LaBrie heating up salmon in the microwave. Salmon is not a scented candle. Or is it?
Next week I will write about whistlers in the workplace. Wah Wah.
