Office Worker Hates New Fresh Air Scent In Restrooms

Man at his office hates the scent of the air freshner

Gary Humboldt, who does something for one of the companies that has offices on one of the upper floors in the Bank of America building, hates the new vanilla-scented air freshener the building’s housekeeping staff has started using in the restrooms.

“The first time I smelled it, I was like ‘Woah!’” Says Humboldt. “I thought maybe a fancy lady had come in there by accident or because the ladies room was busted or something. Then the next day, I smelled it another men’s room on a different floor and realized, ‘huh, it’s everywhere, I guess.’”

I asked him what the problem is, being as it’s a pleasant fragrance. “I don’t like it because it makes me hungry, and I don’t like being hungry when I’m sitting on the toilet,” he said, while sitting on the toilet, pants and underwear around his ankles, eating something out of a package labeled ‘Fudgy Nutz’. “I mean, that’s gross, isn’t it?” He asked and I agreed. 

When asked to comment, a housekeeping supervisor speaking under the protection of anonymity because all the fake names I could come up with for him/her sounded very racist replied, “It’s not vanilla; it’s FRENCH vanilla.”

I said, “Now, THAT’s racist,” and stormed out with my pants and underwear around my ankles.
