Getting a bit smelly at work can happen occasionally, especially when you’ve been hard at work in a boiling hot office. Usually this can be combatted by a spray of some deodorant or actually having a shower in the mornings, but what do you do when you can’t find the source of the odour? Is there any protocol for this? Do you have an obligation to hand out nose pegs for your co-workers or is it a bonafide excuse for an early afternoon exit?

These are probably the thoughts that ran through 24-year-old Casey Fiesel’s mind as she entered her workplace back in July, sporting a brand new little black dress bought from Zara. Although the dress in itself was arguably quite nice, she began to notice an itching at her leg as well as a particular pungent stench. As Fiesel reached down to locate the loose string that was aggravating her skin, she found a rotting mouse leg hanging out from inside the hem. And there we were thinking a regular old cum stain was bad.
To her utter shock and disbelief, as she ran her hand over the hem of the dress she felt an unusual bulge and suddenly realised that it was not a string that was rubbing against her leg but was instead a leg rubbing against her leg. The leg of a dead rodent that is.
Fiesel is now suing the fashion retailer, not only for unspecified damage and emotional distress but also because she now has a huge rash from a “rodent-born” disease thanks to the dead animal’s contact with her body. Suddenly I understand why nudists do what they do, to narrow the chances of accidentally going about your day with a smelly mouse attached to your person.
If that’s not enough to keep you away from the store forever, Zara are notorious art thieves, known to steal designs from independent artists for their own financial gain. Not cool guys.
