I would like to state for the record that, if we, as a theatre, request the patrons to not wear colognes and perfumes to the shows for the comfort of other theatre patrons (aside from the asking them in the back of the program they receive at the theatre, who’s bright idea was that??) I think that we should also have, as a rule within the theatre that ushers and all theatre front of house staff can’t wear cologne or perfume.
I say this party for the comfort of the patrons, and partly because one of the women I work with uses WAY too much perfume and it gives me headaches, as does one of the men.
Perfume and cologne are BAD. BAD!
Thank you, that is all. I’d bring it up at work, but getting things changed for the better at that place is virtually impossible at the best of times. Something so ‘trivial’ as my bosses would see it as perfume would be laughed at. Especially since my manager wears a lot of perfume. She’s already biased.
