I share on office room with a co-worker who remarked that they unfortunately discovered bed-bugs at home, and their landlord was not doing much to help.
Since I sit in less than 1 metre of proximity to them, this got me paranoid of the off-chance that I could catch an infestation from them (I've had past experience). The advice I found online told me that my fears had some merit.
So I asked to sit away for the time being - until my co-worker resolve the issue, and politely (I think) let them know why. My internal reasoning was that, despite the low risk, the highly damaging and stressful situation a bed bug infestation of my own would bring made it too costly to stay in the same room.
I now feel guilty that my request and behaviour was unprofessional and rude. Did I go too far?
