Hello friend, I have faced such a situation a few times in college and the best way for me was to simply walk away citing some excuse or the other. There are people who get mad at you and create a scene when you tell them their deficiency. Hence, I like to avoid that confrontation and simply pass by.

Yes I too do the same thing. If i must compulsarily spend sometime with them like taking tutions or learning music like that, i will keep my head down in the pretext of reading or writing something or looking somewhere else while conversing with them. Otherwise, simply walk away citing some excuse or the other.

Hi. vathsala30. Well, I would simply offer them a piece of gum or a mint. And if I don't have any of these freshers to give them, I will just walk away and excuse myself. I can't stand to smell someone that has very bad breath.

Hi Cream What you say is absolutely true. It is not only irritating but disgusting too to tolerate such unpleasant smell. Your idea is nice indeed.

Some people though well educated and occupying good posts, do not maintain, oral hygiene. If they brush their teeth, twice a day and use dental floss definitely they can control the bad breath. Indigestion also may be the cause for bad breath. They should check that problem too. we can rather say cleanliness is next to godliness.

ha ha ha. Nice excuse. Indeed some people do not maintain oral hygiene. Even so many educated and well placed and well settled people will have the same problem which is embarrassing to tell and irritating to tolerate.

Always carry breath mints with you. When you run into someone like that, take them out and have one for you and then offer them one too. That way you are being friendly, not insulting
