I work for a doctor,and I cannot tell you how many times someone comes in with bad body odor. Bad enought that we wind up spraying the place down with air freshener after they leave. Am I crazy. Isn't that just rude and Gross too. Where do people get to the point that they don not bathe and then go out in public that way. And I'm not talking a little sweat from the field here guys. I'm talking not bathed for a considerable time Gross!

oh i have a horrible story to tell but imma say it anyways my own mother when i was little forgot to put on deoderent when i was little it was horrible she smelt really bad i told her of it but lets not forget sometimes we forget to put underarm stuff on too i feel horrible when i forget to put some on or leave my brush at home i hate going out smelling bad an with messy hair... but sometimes you just forget theres always another day to go out. but bathing i do at least once a day or everyother day i really dont do much im a house mom lol sometimes its just dishes an cleaning the house but if i feel to sweaty i like to jump in the shower .. i like to feel clean ... other people cant smell themselves becuase its right under their nose kinda like your breath .... you need to tell them if you know them if you dont know them just let them go on their way.... oh well have a nice night ~Angel

Unpleasant odors can be bothersome. Must think though about the person, do they have a medical problem that causes this whether just physical or even mental. Maybe they cannot smell themselves. Admittedly it can be bad for the rest of us, however, I wonder what their story is. I hope you don't get another person like that in anytime soon

Oh we always give everyone excellent care, no question of that. And I have considered the health issue part of it, but I really think you'd have to meet a couple of these to see what I mean. I have a Greek friend who always smells slightly of stale garlic (wonder why?) He however does not reek like the people I mention do. NAd I do hope it is a while before one of them returns.

You know I say you dont have to have the best of clothes and you dont have to have a lot of money, but I agree the least you can do is take a bath or wash up. I just spent the morning in the va clinic and Im amazed at the people who come there unclean looks like they havnt conbed there hair in weeks,again I say you dont have to have the best but for gods sake have a little pride.

Maybe that is what bothers me so much. That these people do not have any pride what so ever in their person. No matter how down on your luck you are there are always ways of cleaning up.

Oh my gosh, do you receive hazard pay? I try hard not to contribute to that problem. I take my daily shower and carry fragrance mist with me in case I sweat and when I don't feel so fresh. I felt so bad last time I was at the doctor, I had to throw up. I kept saying, "I'm sorry" and they thought it was funny that I was apologizing. I really felt bad that I had to vomit, ya know. And vomit doesn't smell all that great.

Thanks for the consideration. That kinda smell we can forgive, but just plain unwashed, yuck and no. And no I don't but I like the hazard pay idea, lol.
