Ugh, help! Smelly dude at work...
Ok there is this guy at work and he smells... well... rancid !
He doesnt shower, he wears the same clothes for weeks.
He works out in the shop (I am in the Office across the parking lot) and they have no air conditioning so in the summer its even worse. But even all winter long he smelled so bad.
I am the Purchasing Agent and Inventory Control, so I often have the shop guys in my office for one thing or another.
This guy is in his 40's, has two kids, is divorced and recently his mother moved in with them cause her husband died and she had no place to go. So its not like he doesnt know to shower. He is a really nice guy but he smells. To make matters worse, he is very overweight so I can only imagine all the bacteria that is growing in his "folds".
We are a very small company. There are 7 of us.
How do I tell this guy he needs to shower and wash clothes daily, without being mean, without hurting his feelings?
I thought of leaving a note in his car or something.
What do you all think?
