My co-worker foot stinks

I'm having a problem to tell him that his feet stinks a lot. He has this manner to take off his shoes during the middle of the day during work hours. I'm really having a hard time working and smothered by the smell of his feet. Is there any polite way I could tell him that his feet stinks and for him to refrain from removing his shoes???

That's a really tough situation.
How bout slipping an anonymous note on his work station?
Maybe then he'll end up with a good realization.
Or you could just have a confrontation.
(can someone tell me if this makes a good poem?)

once Remove Yours And Stand Near Him,
when it stinks to him say we are the same,
Or Ask Him If He can Smell something burning or bad if he says no so tell him look at your your foot

you should say: "hey you feet stinks, will you put your shoes on, and wash your feet everytime you take a bath.... so that it will not STINK!!!!...."

in a very polite, mannered, cool way that you ever could be

Next time, when he removes his shoes, you pretend by fainting. Make sure he sees it, and when everybody in your office starts to gather around, get up slowly.. and say " I cant smell that stink anymore" and faint again...

I will work guaranteed

Playing games is never wise. Just be diplomatic and matter of fact, come right out and don't beat about the bush, tell it straight, don't mix your words or procrastinate, be gentle and kind, but tell the man in no uncertain terms, say,

"Dude! Your feet stink! I don't want to hurt your feelings or get punched in the face but for crying out loud, wash your feet and get some new shoes, or work with your feet out the window!".

There you go, another problem solved. Next Please!

Life is too short to be [olite about that kind of thing.
Either tell him or put up with it.
Up to you

lol I had a similar situation years ago, I had to live with it until I left.

Just tell him politely, I am sure he not gonna like it but he would take some steps to solve it for sure.

Luckily my office is separated with the staff..lol

The best thing you can do is say it this way:

>You know what..your feet smells good..there are times I'd want to rub it and kiss it.

I hope this will work..lol

May be you can have a little conversation about it without offending him, or just leave a simple note at the table, just don't give your name.

You should inform your colleague to meet a doctor about his stinking foot, straight forward.

I would just tell them to keep their shoes on since it bothers you. They may feel embraced but, a 5 dollar can of schauls foot powder will do wonders on that lost pride.

Honesty is the best policy. If a person has an offensive odor I see no reason why you can't bring it up so long as you do so respectfully instead of accusatory or in an insulting manner.

But there is a possibility that he will only think of one person
and that is the one near to him..

Try acting ignorant about his feet then asking what the smell is.

That's not really being tactful.
