The 75 year old co-worker, who would not retire ("I need to stay busy and why do volunteer work when I can get paid"), who was forced to go part-time after wetting chairs.  She was a floater, filling in during vacations and the receptionist's breaktimes and lunchtime, and had a bladder problem.  She told HR she had gotten it under control, but not true.  So she worked 3 hour days until she retired at age 78 because of other health problems.  People learned to look before they sat.

We had an advisor in our office that would wear the same shirts alternating over a week. Without washing them.

Grim.  I have worn the same top twice in a week, because it's my favourite top. But I washed it.  And I shower daily. Especially in heat because I know I have an issue with particularly sweaty feet.  Which I spray with a medicated spray and use powder twice daily. 

Which reminds me of another one.
 
I had a coworker who used to take his socks and shoes off and boy, they reeked. I mean, really, really smelled bad.  Why would anyone do that?? Why?  ???
