Another episode at school saw Camille’s peers pelting her with tuna sandwiches in the school cafeteria. Although highly embarrassing, one of the most frustrating aspects of her condition was that Camille couldn’t smell the weird scent herself. Hence she was unaware when her honk was particularly bad. This meant there were moments in her adult life that were just as humiliating as those in school.
In fact, Camille’s introduction to the world of work was a rude awakening for her. She told Primetime about her first job, which saw her isolated from her fellow workers. Starting out as a teller in a credit union, she said, “My supervisor would come by and spray my area with perfume, Lysol, and they put me in the drive-through section, which is separate from the rest of the teller area.”
