I Guess I Am Highlighting Work Topics This Week

I read a washingtonpost.com online discussion about workplace behavior today, and I have to say, this is definitely the grossest work-related question I have ever seen in my life:

I work in an enclosed office with several others. A new person was recently hired who has what can be described as a festering wound on her foot. She is a very nice person but the problem is she cleans it in the office and it often causes a nauseating smell to permeate the room that bothers all of us. We have no HR people on site.

We are at a loss as how to politely ask this individual to clean the wound in the restroom, not in the office. But we of course don't want to offend or embarrass her. She clearly has an infected would that she is trying to get to heal, but cleaning it out in an enclosed office space while the smell from the infection permeates the room is proving to be hard for us to tolerate much longer. This has been going on for about a month and is not improving. Thanks.

WHAT THE HELL.

ups, I think I do not understand well, sorry. It's really disgusting and perhaps even dangerous, someone should tell her that do not do these things in public, or at least she does so in the toilet.

Aww man, I thought no one noticed when I cleaned my wound at work. How embarrassing to find out this way.
