Employee's fragrance too much to handle? Don't sweat
Dear Harriette: My assistant came to work wearing a fragrance that's so
strong it's making me sick to my stomach. I had to leave the office for
a while in order to get a breath of fresh air.
I don't quite know what to say to her, even as I'm sure something must
change in order for me to be able to coexist with her. How can I broach
this sensitive topic?
-- Laura, Cincinnati
Dear Laura: I experienced the same thing recently. Being pregnant, my
sense of smell is supremely amplified, and I literally get sick when in
the company of strong fragrances or odors. Very kindly, I simply explained
the situation and asked the employee in question not to wear fragrance
to work because I'm currently allergic to it. She happily agreed.
Don't blow this out of proportion. Simply talk to your assistant and explain
your sensitivity to fragrance. Ask her to support you either by wearing
no fragrance or something far subtler.

Dear Harriette: I would like to comment on your column about African-American
women who think their sons are the "man of the house" and how
you mentioned he might be having an affair. I've been married to a German-Irish
man for 21 years. He also has an obsessive mother who thinks my husband
should do all the upkeep on her house, including major home improvements.
My husband jumps at her calls, and I'm certain he is not having an affair
since her home is not very far and I know he is there, so I would not
be so quick to jump to that conclusion.
We lived near my mother-in-law for seven years, and it nearly broke up
our marriage. We moved three miles away, but now that his father passed
away she has created a to-do list for him that is not even within reason.
My conclusion for mothers of sons: Let your sons live their lives with
their own families. Yes, a son is obligated to help, but let him live
his life like a man -- and husband -- should.
-- Linda, Colorado
Dear Linda: Thank you for your comments that underscore the reality that
many mothers exercise unfair control over their sons. This selfish behavior
does cause tremendous hardship for their sons' family life and is a sentiment
echoed across the country. Perhaps some controlling mothers will see this
discussion and reconsider how destructive their unbridled requests are
on their sons' families.
Although demanding mothers are often the sole issue here, my concern regarding
the husband's fidelity is another serious consideration for some. Husbands
and wives do sometimes invent work scenarios when they are actually engaging
in extramarital activities, particularly when the duty involves rushing
off at all hours of the day and night to tend to someone else's needs.
My intention was not to inspire doubt. I want women to be proactive as
they discover how to manage their family lives.
