Speaking of boogers getting on you

[By George Carlin]

"What... somebody elses!? Get it off of me it got on me by accident... YAAAH!"

"You'd wipe it on flaming wood if you had to."


"I have gone away. The bed is cold and empty. Trees bend their boughs toward the earth. And nighttime birds float as black faces."

Well Karen,
Sharon is right. I had to do that 35 years ago to an "older" guy in the work place. It was just like Christopher's story. He seemed clueless but immediately fixed the problem. And as for Ron's odor philosophy - I like where I'm at but it might be worth a move to dodge that one.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

OMG!! B.O. is THE worse odor in the world to me. And, like Christopher, it literally makes me ill to even think about some of the people I've smelled in my life at work. Eventually, though, the personnel manager would always call them in and tell them someone had found their odor to be offensive. I think there is no excuse for an adult to not take a bathe. And trying to cover the smell up with cologne or perfume makes such a sickening smell!!

Now, a child is different. Most of the time, I think it's because they haven't been taught personal hygeine. They don't teach it in school anymore? Anyway, I think it was good that your daughter talked to her friend. It probably didn't hurt her feelings as bad as it would have if you had talked to her. That would have probably embarassed her.

By the way, I hope the smell has gotten better now?

I remember an episode of my favorite show, Degrassi (The new ones!) One of the young men smelled, and a girl walked up to him and said "Cardinal rule of puberty: shower every day" :P

It's understandable if someone maybe forgot their deoderant one day (guilty here!) but a constant problem should be addressed.

Glad your daughter had a talk with her, I'm sure she's better off now!

Serenity...A touchy subject indeed.
I worked with a guy that had the B.O. problem, I just tried holding my breath when I got near him but that didn't work very good, he always thought I was having a heart attack cause my face would turn red.
I tried to always stay up wind of him as much as I could and I coughed alot to keep from gagging. I was always too considerate too bring it up to him.
Maybe you could just ask them if they smell something bad and hopefully they will take the hint...Paul

In this hot weather, I am thinking of carrying a sign that says, "If you don't think you stink in this heat, you had better think again" whatca think?  Yup, sounds like a great t-shirt slogan to moi.

Karen, this thread is hysterical...but it's kind of sad, too, in a way.  I feel sorry for that little girl.  You've probably already solved the problem, or your daughter did....so what I would have done is probably a moot point...but, I think I would lovingly try to indirectly teach her some hygiene....you and your daughter working very subtly, doing girly kind of things, and setting that kind of example.  From the sounds of it, she has probably never had a bath set....maybe there are water problems where she lives...who knows.  But kids can be so cruel and I think loving honesty is better than nasty remarks and ridicule when she starts back to school.  Maybe, I'd even buy her some cute undergarments.....maybe laundry doesn't get done.....and do some handwash in the sink to show her how she can do that herself.  I know my gorgeous grown girl, who is now a stickler on personal grooming (really to a point of ridiculous) did not start grooming the right way until she was about 14 or 15.  Some kids ... just plain stubborn!  Anyhow, bless your heart for its caring.   ........jojo

Yes, I enter laughing, because the ending to my story is just that funny.

My daughter did indeed have a talk with her friend and it turned out--she was sniffing the wrong girl. (Girls travel in packs at that age, and since I don't know the proper terminology for a pack of teen-aged girls I'll make one up--we'll call it a "giggle" of girls. )

After being swatted by the wrongly accused, they all sat down and yup, had a "frank" discussion. (*winks* to Mysteria)

No one's feelings were hurt, and in fact, it's become a running joke amongst this giggle of girls to sniff one another upon greeting!



At last, a happy ending from the home of serentiy blaze.
