Aibu to suspect my boss of using cocaine

If you had regular one to one meetings with your boss lasting two hours and he went to the toilet twice during those to 2 hours and came back fidgeting with his nose and sniffing would you suspect him of abusing cocaine or is that a really tenuous connection?

TheNaze73 Wed 10-May-17 20:46:09

He's not necessarily on the sniff but, that would be a sign of usage

It's a big assumption to jump to. Do you have any other suspicions to add to the weak bladder/runny nose scenario?

TheChineseChicken Wed 10-May-17 20:48:31

I would be more likely to assume he had a cold

ImperialBlether Wed 10-May-17 20:49:18

Does his behaviour change between going into and coming out of the loo?

ThisIsStartingToBoreMe Wed 10-May-17 20:49:58

It can't be a cold though coz he does it all the time. He's young (30) and ambitious and competitive and we work in a very fast paced and stressful industry

I'd assume cold, sinus issues unless other things pointed to coke. Tbf if it's not affecting how he does his job then leave his toilet visits to him.

SaucyJack Wed 10-May-17 20:50:42

Is there anything else to go on?

Maybe he's allergic to the washing powder you use?

ThisIsStartingToBoreMe Wed 10-May-17 20:51:41

He seems more pleasant when he comes back not that he was unpleasant before if that makes sense

Babyroobs Wed 10-May-17 20:53:00

Maybe he has a prostate problem and a post nasal drip !!

Do you work in a dairy based company? If so that is my wanker ex and yes grin
If not it could be hayfever...

HildaOg Wed 10-May-17 21:04:54

Sinus or hayfever would be the first thing on my mind but it's hard to say when we can't see him.

ProseccoBitch Wed 10-May-17 21:10:03

I would definitely think he was taking coke in the loo and I speak from experience.

BlondeB83 Wed 10-May-17 21:24:00

Based on your info of the industry, highly likely.

BlondeB83 Wed 10-May-17 21:24:25

But I doubt anyone would care unless they were forced to deal with it formally.

Hannahbanana1725 Wed 10-May-17 21:27:23

Sounds likely from the industry, but speaking from experience, sadly no one's likely to care

Babymamamama Wed 10-May-17 21:27:27

No I wouldn't assume that. I would think he had sinusitis or allergic rhinitis.

Iamastonished Wed 10-May-17 21:33:10

I wouldn't because I am naive and wouldn't know how to recognise the signs.

ThisIsStartingToBoreMe Wed 10-May-17 21:47:15

Think I just need to ignore it

BlondeB83 Wed 10-May-17 21:49:59

I think that's the right move.

TwoBeams Wed 10-May-17 21:50:03

I've got awful hayfever and sinus problems. When I take my nasal spray, it clears out my sinuses and my nose runs a fair bit

I've also taken coke in the past though, there's not a massive difference. Look at his eyes.

QueenMortificado Wed 10-May-17 21:50:10

Does he drive a blacked out car and wear a big medallion in a dollar shape?

ShatnersBassoon Wed 10-May-17 21:51:20

I wouldn't think of cocaine.

I often blow my nose when I go to the loo, and probably have a little sniff and check for unwiped bogies afterwards. It's possible I could need two wees in two hours if I'd had plenty to drink.

SmhShakingMyHead Wed 10-May-17 21:52:39

How does this impact you?

sonjadog Wed 10-May-17 21:52:57

If it has just started these past weeks, then I would guess it is pollen related.
