A Minnesota woman is claiming that smoking a cigarette in the privacy of her own home cost her a job.
Cannon was fired from her job as a receptionist at the Frauenshuh
Cancer Center of Park Nicollet Health Services on the grounds that she
smelled like smoke at work, KSTP-TV reports.
Cannon is a regular, pack-a-day smoker, but she told the local ABC
affiliate that she never brought her habit with her to work.
weeks into her job, Cannon's boss told her she could no longer show up
to work smelling like smoke. Despite efforts to eliminate the smell from
her clothing -- which she claims included bagging and spraying her
clothing with air freshener before work -- the stench just wouldn't go
away, and the hospital let her go.
