Re: Bad Breath

I wonder how many people posting on this thread have body odour issues themselves?

I bought some Italian ice cream in the afternoon and got on the bus to IKEA. Found a nice seat and was about to start enjoying it when I realized that someone had a serious combination of arm pit odour and bad breath. It became clear that I would have to move or bin my ice cream. I noticed an empty seat next to a woman and I went for it. To my horror the woman or shall I say the thing was the source of the smell and not the guy I had assumed to be the culprit.

Drastic steps had to be taken so next stop I got off and enjoyed the ice cream all alone at the bus stop while waiting for the next bus.

Re: Bad Breath

today I've decided to fight fire with fire... so to speak.

lunch today is an egg and cress sandwich ( mrs. actually found watercress at Coop last night) and I thought after lunch I'd take a nice little stroll thru the 30+ degree heat.

I dare her ( or anyone really ) to step into my office this afternoon




( I think this would probably be a good aftn. for me to catch up on those phone calls )

...I left work earlier today (prior to 4:20) and my gf and I hopped on a bus (for which I didn't purchase a ticket). A lady came and sat right behind us and all of the sudden, we were overwhelmed with "doo-doo" odor. Now my initial thought was "somebody stepped into some serious dog s**t"....it turned out that the lady behind us must have had something die inside of her, as it wasn't dog s**t but rather her bad bad bad bad breath. Now, the thing was, my initial thought wasn't much of a thought, but rather spoken words..and I assume that the lady heard my comment and thus swiftly made use of some Fisherman's Friend. The life saving candy did minor work but couldn't manage to do major reparations on my now upset stomach. I am not joking, this person's breath was lethal. Has anybody else experienced major, serious, lethal bad breath?

Bad breath is most often associated with gum disease. Combined with cigarettes, it is one of the most disgusting odors known. Believe me, I do know....However, a good dental cleaning can do wonders.....Make sure and ask for a DH (dental hygienist) and not a PA (prophylaxis assistant)....a good investment for your love life.

To the OP:
That woman had to have been on my tram a few days ago. It was so bad I looked under my shoe if I stepped in something. Alas, it was a rancid mouth breather sitting behind me.

I admit, it was me.

I'd eaten an onion and pickled herring omelette for breakfast and then found myself so congested I had no choice but to breathe through my mouth. Sorry!
