In the office where I work we have a wide variety of personalities and that makes for interesting conversations, very interesting conversations. For instance, we have “Jack the Knife” a woman who works in our compliance division who only shows up when there’s food, hence why we call her Jack the Knife (her name is Jackie). She comes by knowing (miraculously) when food is around. She then proceeds in piling her plate sky high with whatever freebies there are and then locks herself in her office never to be seen again until the next food-venture. I walked by her office one day and saw piles of paper and ceramic plates with half eaten food all over her desk and credenza. We, myself and the Lead Budget Analyst who works in our office get a kick out of the almost comical characters we deal with. He’s probably the only normal person (aside from myself, I saw that stop it!) and we get along great. He has a wicked sense of humor and always manages to make me laugh, so we kind of came up with different nicknames for some of the “colorful” people that work with us, Jack the Knife being one of many.
Other than Female Sheldon and Jack the Knife we have a director who is a nice lady, I should day girl because she’s younger than I am, but she has issues, and we’ve christened her “PigPen.” She is a PhD and is a nice person to work with but there was something I couldn’t quite figure out about her and one day another coworker from another department gave me some insight about PigPen. She said she use to work in this department but up on the third floor in the research lab. She told me “whatever you do, do NOT stand close to PigPen” and of course being the person I am I asked her why? She said PegPen adheres to the Halley Barry school of hair-care and doesn’t wash her hair but a couple of times a month. My friend told me that PigPen has really curly hair and has to straighten it out, so another reason why she doesn’t wash her hair often. Ewwww, just ewwww……
Which would explain why every time I was standing behind or even remotely close to her I could smell something close to wet dog or wet trash. She’s part of the “No-Poo” movement not shampooing her hair on a regular basis because it stays healthier and is better for your scalp, it keeps the essential oils and all that bullshit. This No-Poo movement is not something I would partake in because I wash my hair every day, and my hair doesn’t mess with me too much. I use what I have to, to keep it as clean and healthy as possible. So now I steer clear of PigPen at every possible chance because I don’t think she realized that her habit of not washing her hair is causing a stink, literally and I’m not the only one who’s noticed. The budget analyst (who I’m going to call JP) walked into the kitchen this morning and PigPen was in there heating up her breakfast and he walks up to me and says “Is the garbage disposal clogged up again, because it stinks” and I just shrugged my shoulders and left the kitchen. That’s how bad is smells. This woman is a director in our department, a PhD, she deals with people all day long smelling like wet dog.
I wonder how much she thinks everyone around her don’t notice how bad her hair really stinks? I mean why would you put your coworkers through that? It’s common sense that when you don’t wash something, that needs washing it’s going to stink eventually.
