If they can do it to their workers, they can do it to all workers...
Nanny State PING!
New Hampshire will stink.
New Hampshire - Live Free Or Die!
New Hampshire - Live Scent Free Or Answer To Big Brother!
Guess that excludes legislators and governors since they do their own thing without any interaction with the little people.
When applied modestly, perfume enhances a woman’s sex appeal.
We who live here really need to ban the Massholes from moving up.
I can’t imagine what the DMV will smell like in July if the air conditioning goes!
Absolutely loving it! First they came for cigarettes in the workplace which was ok. Then they came for cigarettes in government facilities, which was still ok. But then they came for cigarettes in privately owned establishments and it was unconstitutional, but the voters refused to see that this was a terrible overreach of power. I can only hope that the idiots that voted against smoking in all public venues, lose their horrific perfume and understand what they did.
Seriously. If you are allergic to that stuff then it is a living He** to be around it. It causes a lot more problems than a running nose. It is like sniffing Glue. Headaches,Loss of concentration, and general sense of stupor, are some of the symptoms. And If you can’t get away from it then it kills you immune system so that you get colds constantly. I personally went through this at a job. I could follow someones trail through a building just by following the sent. Many of these people dump an entire bottle of cologne on them every day. You people who think this should be a protected right to force people to breath that stuff are ignorant. A little might be OK. But the whole room should not smell for an hour after you leave.
I used to say that I was going to get some skunk scent and put it on for the day. I bet you same people would be complaining up a storm. You would demand that such a fellow employee clean it off or be fired. Hypocrites.
Thing is - some of the scents people wear DO cause severe reactions to those around them and not just a few sneezes. Case in point. A woman wearing a heavy perfume walked past my mother in a grocery store. My mother fainted immediately. Thankfully, a man right behind her caught her before she hit the floor. Later we found out that people with heart conditions - like my mother - can be very sensitive to certain chemicals used in perfumes. Interestingly, after my mother underwent by-pass surgery, the sensitivity to perfumes went away.
I honestly think I would make working at a job like this a living hell.
Smuggle in perfume, spray it in random places, drop some on the floor, wipe it under tables in the cafeterias..
I doubt I would stay employed long in any of these new police state jobs that try to run your life both on and off the job.
Be careful what you wish for, some people splash on the scents because they don’t like to bathe.
I went scent free maybe 30 years ago. After a while, my sensitivity to perfumes, colognes, and scented soaps, increased dramatically. Frankly, I think my normal sense of smell returned.
I can’t stand to be around people who douse themselves with scents, these days.
I’d think this article was a joke, but not now a days. Only government bureaucrats can take a rather simple problem and complicate it into laws and regulations requiring specifications, extensive rules, inspectors and unnecessary expense. I just wonder if anyone with more sense than a dust mop ever thought to check to see if this problem was 1 in 2 encounters or 1 in 50,000 and if a little leadership could solve the problem?
both reps who sponsored this bill are republicans.
wtf are they thinking? several bills have been filed in this vein. they are looking to lose their super majority in the house.
Oops, leadership and common sense are probably not listed in the bureaucrat’s job description.
Perfume is not that big a problem, you can always move away but the air freshener that they use in some places is enough to knock a buzzard off a gut wagon.
