I think the hands down worst office smell is burned popcorn (aside from smelly perfumes and bo.. ick!).

I think the best smell is toner. :shock:

Yep, microwaves have been removed to the outside when popcorn was burned in them ...... some not so gently too.

Here the occasional sulfur compound from landfill gases being transferred or analyzed is the worst, but then this is not the typical office either ....

I wish we could do that here. Nothing worse in this building because it's got an open floor plan and a huge atrium in the middle.

Burnt popcorn ain't so bad. :twisted: It gets much worse than that.

I worked in a small office in a warehouse that had no windows and a halfarsed ventilation system that worked some of the time with seven men. Not many office smells impress me anymore. :lol:
