Life Stinks: You Can Do Something About It.

 Apathy anti-bad-mood spray smells like fresh-peeled pink grapefruit.

 

People smell, and that’s not so out-of-the ordinary. And neither is chronic, day-to-day misery. What’s unusual is when people – either smelly people or miserable people – actually make an effort to do something about it.

In an email to HR Products’ headquarters, Heather A. explains how much she hates her life:

“Things at my work are going to hell in a hand basket. The only thing keeping me sane is the sprays. My co-worker says that that I look like a ‘huffer’ when she catches me in my office sniffing all the room sprays.”

“She doesn’t smell,” says Heidi Rettig, CEO of antibadmoodsprays.com. “At least I don’t think so, because we’ve never actually met, but her life is obviously completely miserable because she bought all four of my mood-lifting sprays.

Heather A. bought a bottle of Apathy and then ordered the other three scents just hours after receiving her first delivery.

“Okay. I’m hooked. I hate you. I just got my box delivered, and now I’m ordering again. I’m spraying this sh*t on me and everyone that comes in my office. And my home. Ahhh … now I can function. Thank you for making my life bearable.”

How does HR Products feel about that? Heidi Rettig replies, “We love Heather.”

Cubicle Mood Sprays: Secret Santa Office Gift Guide

 

 

 

How many times a day do you find yourself thinking, "I hate my boss?" Google Analytics tells us that this phrase brings more people to The Antidote for Ego website than any other. The sad part is that people aren't even really looking for a "cure," per se. They're just making a kind of search engine confession. These are desperate times.

Cubicle mood sprays can't fix your situation, but they will help you cope. At least in a small way. The aromatherapy blends in each bottle were developed to mitigate common workplace complaints; behaviors that affect all of us at one time or another.

The biggest seller on my website is Apathy - and Apathy is a great cubicle mood spray to start with if you've never tried aromatherapy before. It's a fresh, grapefruit scent subtle enough for use in a shared space. The natural citrus will clean bad food smells out of the air and improve your mood.

A great idea for your Secret Santa, but mostly, a great idea just for you. Free shipping through the holidays.

 This movie-making technology from Xtranormal.com inspires me! I made a video of passive/aggressive behavior at work. If you have a boss like this one, you might benefit from one of our sprays - Passive or Aggressive - or both.  Enjoy the video!

Antidote Jars At The Getty Center Los Angeles

  

 

Attributed to Annibale Fontana
Italian, about 1580
Painted and gilt terracotta

This "antidote" jar is one of two currently on display at The Getty Center, Los Angeles. The Getty attributes the work to one of the most important sculptors of the period, Annibale Fontana. 

Why such an elaborate design for a storage container? These jars held the most prized drugs in the Renaissance pharmacy: mithridatum and theriac. Mithridatum and theriac were used as antidotes for the Plague.
