However, that's very rare.
    I lived in a leased house that, I swear, had mold behind the walls, but the owners wouldn't pay to have it tested. Ever since I lived there, my sense of smell is hit or miss. One day it will be working perfectly, and the next, nothing. For whatever reason, though, my sense of taste hasn't been affected. That makes no sense to me, either, as the two are closely tied together. If you can't smell, you can't taste.

    And I agree about people standing close to me, but it's not because I'm worried they will have an odor. I just don't like people in my space.

    Interesting concept, and I just don't see anything wrong with it. Let's see how it goes.

    Private but, I take on average 3/day. Sometimes more sometimes less. Don't judge too fast. There are bosses out there that do pay employees to shower.
