Quick Hits 38

Sometimes I hear an utterance or catch a quick visual of something that sticks in my mind. As this sensory input rolls about in my head, several different outcomes are possible. It might be the case that after a moment of consideration, the input is deleted as uninteresting, trivial, or too much for me to deal with. However, another possible outcome is that the input keeps demanding my attention. It somehow wants me to wrestle with it and give it more than just a passing notice. In such cases, they can end up here, in my blog series called Quick Hits.

Have you ever had to work closely with a colleague who had such bad breath that it was nearly unbearable? Is it reasonable to bring this up to them and to dismiss them until they deal with their hygiene problem?

What do you think?
