Definitely ^That!!

If you have a doubt, just type in 'microwaving fish at work' (or something similar) on Google and see all the complaints, work place banning, etc. That would NOT be the case if it didn't have a VERY stinky smell! LOL

I don't think being considerate is feeding into a "neurosis". Would you chow down garlic bread before going to the dentist (without brushing teeth)? When you are in confined spaces with people you have to be around ALL day, you should be considerate. Have good hygiene, use perfume sparingly, keep your noise level down, and don't cook stinky food. Lol. It's not being overly pc or, it's being considerate.
Exactly! Not cooking smelly foods at work is just a common courtesy.

When your office is on the complete opposite side of the office from the kitchen (separated by DOORS and a long winding hallway) and you can STILL smell the fish, it MUST be smelly.

I just don't plan my food according to smell. It's not something I have ever considered. That said I don't really reheat fish much anyway. I am the only one in my house who eats it and I only make enough for myself.

I don't really care one way or the other about fish and other foods, but...this. Oh my goodness. I help customers at work all the time that absolutely REAK from the perfume/cologne. It gives me a headache.

I have no problem with a light scent...but it's like...seriously? Do you not realize how much you smell?

My dentist's office has a sign hanging up that tells patients not to wear perfume/cologne. If you wear it to their office, they'll ask you to leave.

I have bad asthma/allergies, so anything like that is VERY bad for me. I even have to be careful with scented lotions and candles.

I hate it when people microwave something really garlicky or something stinky like eggs at work. Fish doesn't bother me that much to be honest.

However, I try not to microwave anything that's too strong in odor just because I know some people don't like the smell and feels sick after. Like me with garlicky stuff lol.

I don't plan my food according to smell either. And at home, it doesn't matter. I can open up windows. But I can't at work.... That's the whole point about this question. So yes, at work I do plan my food around smell because I like to be considerate.
