Bad Breath

...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?

Re: Bad Breath

I keep reading about the Schwarzfahrer and thinking about you @lost_inbroad.

Yeah, we have some pretty bad breath from particular people at work. The worst is my head of HR, who every once in awhile will come to my desk and lean over me talking, while I hold my breath and gasp for clean air.

But personally, I have not encountered anything as bad smelling and nauseating as cigarette smoke. That's the thing that paralyzes me with nausea on trains when I'm trying to enjoy the commute home.

But seriously, don't people brush?? How do they have SUCH bad breath??

Re: Bad Breath

You have no right to complain but you do. You didn't pay for the bus, so you shouldn't have been on it in the first place to bicker but I guess you just love to get up people's noses just like this passenger did with her bad breath.

Yes. It seems that some of our continental brethren are less sensitive.

Re: Bad Breath

its not just bad breaths that smell. I keep smelling people who smell like sh. really bad....I don't know if its becuase they don't wipe well enough, dont wash their hands or if the just crapped or sharted their pants. its disgusting. it makes me feel angry and agressive because I shouldn't have to smell that in the train. espescially because I DO pay for transit.
I also hate cigarette smoke, I think its pretty ignorant for smokers to bring that stink with themselves everywhere. but human sludge is worse.

Re: Bad Breath

You mentioned you didn't buy a ticket irrelevantly, so don't get pissed off when other people also mention it.

Re: Bad Breath

That is your well deserved punishment for not paying your ticket I'll make sure you are attacked by a flatulent bur rider next time



Here my story I was in Disney Paris it was February and freezing. We wanted to go into the little carts and started to queue, suddenly I feel it and I tell my sister...it smells like caca...
So I trace the smell and --> the guy in front of us had apparently rolled in sh** really it was unbelievable. So we keep lagging in the line because it really smells like mi**da (sorry had to use the Spanish word) and then the person behind us complaints so we let them move ahead...after 2 minutes they turn around and look at us with eyes bulging WTF!!!!! And we said yes it smells like ****. The most disturbing stuff is that the smelly guy had a backpack, which we believed was the source of the smell, and his wife kept taking out sandwiches and snacks our of there...I do not want to think about what these people might have been eating

Because, smart me (being lactose intolerant) has moved to the land of dairy products... It's been my experience that people with dairy problems often have "odour" issues as their bodies can't properly digest it. But who knows... maybe the person on the train just doesn't know what a toothbrush is

"• A milk intolerance often is the cause of bad breath. Eliminate all dairy products and see if they are the culprit. "
