bad breath

May 22, 2007 12:10am CST
how do you react when someone (boss, friend, teacher, etc..) has a bad breath while talking to you? do you moved a few inches back, hold your breath(till you turn blue...LOL) or tell him/her nicely about it. how to tell that person without hurting his/her feeling?

Hi singlepixel! I really don't know how I can tell someone that his/her breath stinks. I think i would just try to get out of the way of her breathing out. haha..or maybe, I can offer him/her a mint candy! lol..Miss you dear friend! Have a wonderful day! lovelots..faith210

My reaction is based on how well I know the person. If we're moderately close then I will politely let them know. If we're not close then I probably won't tell them but I wouldn't react rudely.

i never had the guts to tell someone (even someone close to me) that they have bad breath. i just think that it will hurt their feelings. I've tried offering them candies, which sometimes work.. But most of the time, i just keep my distance in a not very obvious manner.

offering candies needs guts. i never had that guts. LOL..

when someone has a bad breath, i dont really go around telling or confronting the person right away that he or she has bad breath. especially if the person who has it is my superior or older than me! i am too shy or scared to tell them so so i just end up suffering while they talk. lolz. :)
