I would give them a breath mint. I would offered it them in a polite sneaky way. That way I would not offend anyone by saying their breath stinks.I would not be rude about it at all but very kind and conciderate. Noone want to be around or talk to someone with nasty smelling breath. Nasty breath is not something I want to around. I always carry breath mints or gum in case of a breath emergency. I guess you could say I come prepared.

not had that problem, but i can't stand garlic breath. even just a little bit, my mum used to complain when dad came home from work with bad breath. i now understand why, i just say to my work mate he'd had garlic the night before. even if it was only a little bit i steer clear of him the best i can for the rest of milking.

I would offer them one too if I had some on hand. I would try to be polite about it also unless it became something regular with them. I hate it when you have to tell someone they stink in a polite way and they still do nothing about it.

Me too, just eat one and then offer it to them. I don't like people with bad breath, and if they don't want to take it I will tell them that their breath stink! I have nothing to worry about, it is that person who needs to be ashamed.

i'm doing the same thing. when i go out i always have mentholated candy in my bag or pockets, and then i take one for myself and offer some to my companions, or if i have only one person with me i'd and his or her breath stinks, id offer one for him or her too. there's no need to say that his or her breath stinks, i think he or she will get the idea.

I think that would be the best thing to do, most especially if I know that I'd be with this person & if I'd be talking to him or her for the next few hours.Ü

Yes I would in a heartbeat, I have put up with some stink breath growing up, not anymore, I always carry mints as well, just for this reason, I will just take one out for myself and pass them one as well, now if they refuse the mint, I say please take this, and give them a look lol
