  • Complain, complain, complain

    I know I must be feeling better because I feel well enough to bitch, moan, and complain, and this is exactly what my post is all about. Feel free to click the back button at any time.

    Why is it that some people refuse to have good, personal hygiene? Nothing grosses me out more than smelling someone's offensive body odor. It's disgusting. Can't they smell how nasty their own nasty stentch smells?

    I was given the opportunity today to make up some of the hours that I missed while I was out because of the surgery. I knew there would only be me and two other people here. The girl who is working next to me at the verifying station SMELLS, damn it. I can't do any of my regular work so I can't sit at my desk except on breaks, like I'm doing now.

    I need the hours, but I don't need to be grossed out either. Right now the bitch in me wants to tell her to go home and shower, put on some decent, non stained clothes and brush that nappy hair. It looks like she just rolled out of bed and came right to work. WTF?

    I can't figure out how some people can be like that. I just want to slap her right upside the back of her head, but I'd get all grossed out from even touching her.

    Help! Someone get me a gas mask!

    Unfortunately, Kate, there are people like the lady you

    It's like offering a piece of gum to someone with bad breath and they always refuse the offer....

    I was at the grocery shop yesterday and a man passes me by and I smelled his odor as the wind carried his scent and the pain just shot up to my head...just smelling the odor gave me a painful headache til I went to bed...

        Spray her down with a can of Lysol. I worked with a Sgt that actually did that, and got away with it.. The guy stunk up a whole 30'x15' room.

          God forbid, I really can be such a bitch. I was sitting there doing my work and wrinkled up my nose and said, "Ewwwww, what's that smell? It's nasty!" She inhaled deep and says she didn't smell anything. I then turned to her and said, "You sure? It smells like something just died." She inhales deep again and tells me again she doesn't smell anything...

          Ok, so I'm not so nice all the time. One can only take so much of a person's offensive odors. Yuck!

            We usually tell the rookies to get some Vicks rub to dab under their noses when they have to sit with a smelly one. Some guy's say smoking a cigar helps.

            Nothing really works, though. Best to just open all the windows, and tough it out. You sorta get used to it after awhile.

            You may not notice it by then, but it'll probably be well steeped in your clothes and hair by the time you're done work. Just be sure to take a shower and do the laundry right away when you get home or the family may be looking at you funny and you won't know why.

            Hope this helps.

              Dino! I am laughing my *** off reading your reply! I swear, even Vicks wouldn't work, nor would a cigar. I can't open the windows either, as they don't open! I'm destined to be tortured until she leaves at 6:30. God help me.I may have to burn my clothes when I get home.

                KK, Glad your feeling better.
                At work we have this one guy who smells like death. Three aisle over and the smell lingers. Me being me, I just walk up to the guy and sprayed him. It was mean, probably hurt his feeling BUT majority rules. The majority of the store was sick of smelling him. So I sympothize with your pain. ( now he smells like glade winter breeze )

                  I used to temp in an office where this one woman was some kind of fragrance connoiseur, evertime she walked past you could actually TASTE her perfume in your throat.

                    We've had two legged skunks too. One time UPS made a delivery to the Station with a box for them with no return address. . It seems persons unknown shipped him a bar of soap, deodorant and breath mints. He opened it up in front of everyone and said "why would someone send me this..."? Apparently his sense of smell was not the only thing wrong with him.

                    Magazine articles on Halitosis would also be cut out and put in his mail box.

                    This guy actually had a girlfriend! WTF?!

                      I have one comment for this thread...


                      Katey real with the woman, tell her in a nice way (I know you can do it...) that she stinks on ice.

                        one day, get the nerve to strick up a conversation and talk about this great shower gel youve tried, and just by change, have a sample in your purse and give it to her. Say, here ya gotta try this its awesome.

                        On the reverse side of the coin. I work with a girl who uses the smelliest lotions and hand sprays. Those give me a headache too. I dont know how she can not realize shes got enough on.

                          Try rubbing some perfume just under you nose. I used to do it with aftershave just before an autopsy. It does work!

                            I have been cursed with the keenest smell God ever gave a person. If you think something smells bad, I smell it twice as bad. My H one time called me into the concession stand he ran when our son played Babe Ruth Ball. I walked in and WHOA....I ran out almost gagging. He said, I can't figuure out what it is. He said it smelled bad but forgot my sense of smell is very keen so I almost got sick to my stomach. It had been a 4 day weekend and I told him it was in the hot dog grill. Sure enough, someone had left a hot dog on the grill and it had been in a closed up building four 4 days. It was gross.
                            When I go to the mal, I can't walk through this one store because they have every fragrance on God's earth in the main aisle with the squirt girls giving people free samples of the latest poison. I actually have to walk outside around this store to go to the other half of the mall. If I don't, I get a serious headache and I get very nauseaous. I can't wear a little Chanel#5 and that's it.
                            And it was always a problem with my H's mother. She weighed 250 lbs and was paralyzed by a stroke on her right side. They would come to visit us and I'd have to hold my breath as I walked by her, it was so bad. It was hard for her to take baths so her visits were not much fun.

                              Thanks, Swat. I just tried it and I'm praying for the next 2.5 hours I won't smell her stentch.

                              I did spray some honeysuckle air freshener right near her because I said the smell here was making me sick. She still can't figure out what smells.
