Today, I started my new job at a fragrance store. While training, the manager had me smell all of the scents to become familiar with the products. Before my shift was over, I'd had three asthma attacks. FML

Unless you're suicidal, this isn't the job for you. I think you'd be better off working on a farm, with the nearest pharmacy miles away. But then again, Monk was a fantastic cop, so... Just keep an inhaler handy.

Fragrance stores usually have a lot of different perfumes, so I'm not surprised anyone wouldn't get sick after all those strong smells. Sorry OP, get a new job so your health won't be compromised.

I'm surprised he didn't have an inhaler to begin with!

No job is worth as much as your life dont put it at risk just quit

Actually, farms aren't the best place for asthmatics either. Trust me. :P I'm sure OP had an inhaler to be able to stop the three attacks that s/he had. It'd be a good idea to quit, though...

Why put your hypersensitive lungs at risk? You are asking for it.. But if you have an Asthma preventer such as : Symbicort or Seretide - I would advise using them, it helped me out a great deal to where I could do running and sports without wheezing.

monk was one of my favorite shows!

Only liked that cuz u mentioned monkkkk

You have a fucking scary picture

Well the first day at work is always the worst

I would say the last day usually is.... "your fired" ~ Donald Trump

How does one own a fired?

At least OP's first day at the job wasn't his last day... Alive.

Oh the joys of asthma.

I feel OP's pain here. I've had a day where I had 14 asthma attacks in a single day .__.

I KNOW RIGHT? I hate having asthma..

Asthma sucks. I sound like a pitbull when I cough

Better than sounding like Pitbull. (The pergormer, for those that are confused.)

At least you probably smell really nice now :)

But OP didn't put on any, just smelled. And it probqbly would distract from a smell to see someone hyperventilating.

This isnt a good job for you, OP, think about your health

I see you've discovered my latest fragrance: Eau de Wheeze. It's sure to be a hit!

Yeah, a hit to your lungs.

It's bound to smell better than the Eau de Toilette I keep seeing at the mall. *Shudders* Who wants to smell like toilet water anyhow?
