So it's Christmas time, which means a lot of former employees and retirees are in and out of the office for Christmas parties and the like.  I was milling around in the cafeteria saying hello to some of the familiar faces and I smelled something I couldn't quite place.

It was driving me crazy until I made my way around to one of the retired ad reps...clearly she was the source, but I still couldn't put my finger on it.  Then it hit me.  I walked passed her a few more times just to be sure, but I swear to you it was Lakeland Essence.  And not like "hey it's an old lady wearing perfume and we like to joke about how GH/SG scents smell like old lady perfume, hardy har har," either.  I mean it was DEAD ON, like she'd rubbed herself down with some scented flake or another.


Just thought I'd share   Cool

I'm getting mixed messages here... so was she an old lady or she simply smelled like one? :runninggag: Laughing Did she offer you a pipeful? albino

Cool

Was she a single older lady? Cause if so, she may have been cruising for a pipe smoking man and what you smelled was her attractor scent.

In a similar vein, I've noticed that the Mexican Americans that work in our Tap Room seem to have a preference for cologne that also resembles the Lakeland character. No matter if they're male or female, they all seem to use copious amounts of this. To the degree that it's pervasive to the point of being overwhelming!

Must be a cultural thing, and I'm not at all disrespecting them as they are some of our finest employees. It's just that their choice of ode-cologne wrinkles my nose.

Reminds me much of old ladies foo-foo!

silent



Cheers,

RR

Could be. I once worked with a girl from Nicaragua who is probably in the top five of the most beautiful women I have ever met. She would come in to work in the morning smelling like she just got back from doing 50 laps in an Olympic sized swimming pool full of Charlie. She also had 2 Glade plug-ins in her cubicle constantly spritzing out scented oil. Perhaps she was hiding something more nefarious? Or maybe she thought we didn't smell glorious enough?

I'll never know for sure but I'll take smoking any scented Lakeland tobacco over having to smell her perfume any day of the week. Razz

I don't think Mrs. Idbowman would be too thrilled if I were to start hanging out with such wildlife.

If she is anything like my wife, then that is an understatement.

I love my wife, and she is simply amazing. I wouldn't EVER want another lady.
But if I did cheat... Lord help me, it would be bad.

I had enough trouble finding a woman who could put up with me, and my pipe. Two kids later, and I don't think I'll be moving on
