If you wash your newly hard boiled eggs in cold water for a while (straight away) they don't smell so bad. If you leave them to cool in the boiling water they stink.
Don't know why though.

Check first there's no one in your office with a fish allergy. Just the smell of fish can set off a sympathetic reaction in me. My colleagues have learnt this through bitter experience.

i got told off at work by colleagues for eating a tin of mackerel at my desk even though I have my own office. Apparently the smell drifted down the corridor

Well, today I've given in and gone back to cheese (and onion...).

Thank you all for your input yesterday X
