Neglect Your Oral Health – Get Suspended from Your Job?
Like so many other New York City apartment buildings, Gracie Garden Apartments has a doorman to greet and assist residents and guests. But 60-year-old Jonah Seeman was recently suspended without pay on account of his bad breath.
The realty company that manages the building claims that “severe breath odor” has been a recurring problem for Seeman, a fact the doorman denies. “What are you putting me through?” asked Seeman, who supports his elderly mother. “It’s the holiday season.”
For now, Seeman is taking a double-pronged approach. He’s filed a complaint with his union, and he’s also started brushing more and avoiding onions and garlic.
