If I ask you, "Do you want a mint?" every time you enter my office, that's my polite way of saying your breath is less than pleasant

I just haven't figured out how to tell you about your bad breath yet, and I'm trying not to embarrass you or hurt your feelings.


Listen to others when ordering food

If you're going to order food from the new restaurant down the street, ask your team if they want to participate. And make sure you pay for what you ordered; there's seemingly always someone who tries to get out of paying for their portion of the bill.

Don't overdo it

If I sneeze every time you walk by, your perfume or cologne is too strong. The scent can be overpowering, so please dial it back a bit when you're in close quarters.


Follow the golden food rule

If I leave food in the refrigerator with my name on it, it's my lunch—not yours.


And a second rule too

When I'm eating lunch, don't just reach into my bag and help yourself to a handful of my bites. That's rude (and a little gross). If you want a little piece of my cookie or a couple of chips, please just ask.
