Subject: Dealing with BO
From: GUEST,Kjell
Date: 13 Aug 01 - 06:00 AM

No cookie again

I used to have a real problem with sweating alot, but made sure it was clean sweat, sometines changing shirts three times a day and constant washing and use of deoderant.

I have a friend that wants to come to Whitby with me and stay in my camper van. The problem is that he smells of old sweat. When I suggested to him that a wash wouldn't go amiss, he laughted and said it was a good manly smell. Well its not. Any ideas on how to proceed, all you wise catters out there. Any sweaty songs?

Or is it that Kjell is hoping that you'll have an appropriate funny song in your repertoire Patrish?
As to your problem Kjell - I doubt if you'll change the sweater - if I were you I'd get an awning & stick 'im out there. I had a friend who had appalling BO due to health problems, it wasn't his fault - but I'd not feel obliged to be in a confined space with him for too long. Is there camping? Can you/he borrow a tent so you can each have your own space?

buy him a t-shirt with the armpits cut out -or with 'Mr Whiffy' on -or if that is too subtle try the direct approach and hose him down when he comes within an inch pf the van!

Subtle hints work! I once had a friend with the very same problem. The way I sorted it was like this. First I had a water fight with them (that worked but I got drenched as well), and then I bought them some deodorant as a pressie! They got the hint after that! (By the way, if you are going to have a water fight, tell me when it is!!)

My now-17-year-old stepson was given the "hint" by schoolmates when he was in 8th grade. He was a very infrequent showerer, and in general his personal grooming habits were lacking. For his birthday a bunch of his friends went together and got him a toothbrush, some toothpaste, shampoo, body bar, and underarm deodorant.

He's been a very clean "man" since that very day.

Song suggestions? There was a Challenge not long ago dealing with a high school student arrested for asssaulting a teacher by wearing scented hair gel. All scented toiletries were banned in this particular county. Take a look. I remember some pretty humorous comments on body odor. You haven't experienced the real thing until you have ridden the infamous "7" train in summertime while crammed next to a manly man in a mesh tank top - the tall one who holds onto the overhead hanger and puts his horrendous, hairy armpit in your face.

Park the trailer next to the stables (if there are any) you can then spend your nights in the delightfully distracting game of trying to determine which animal the odour is coming from.

Here's a few things you might say................

"Yeah, that's a manly smell alright....like a man who has worked all day in a sewer."

"Ya' know you could sell that scum in your pits to Ely Lilly to make penecillin."

"It really ain't the smell, it's the fuckin' burning in my eyes."

"I think your dog took a shit in your soapdish."

"Geeziz man, you could knock a buzzard off a shitwagon."

If this person has a wife/girlfriend/buddy whom you could enlist to get the message across, that may be effective. Otherwise, you may have to be direct, and tell him that the odor is unpleasant and you simply can't see sharing a camper with the smell. Not the sort of conversation most of us look forward to, but it's do that or suffer.

Of course, I rather like Spaw's "it's not the smell, it's the eyes burning" line.

"Last time you spent a night in my camper, the vinyl covering peeled off the walls."

"The best thing about your manly smell is that I can't tell when you fart."

"Chemical Warfare is outlawed by the Geneva Convention and this applies to you too."

"Just don't stand too close to the campfire 'cause I think that stench may be explosive."

"Not to put too fine a point on it, but when you walked into the woods, 4 skunks ran out and 17 birds fell out of the trees."

As Ann Landers would say: Print this thread and leave it lying where your friend will find it and read it. And while he's reading, walk around him spraying room-freshener.

Did you see the movie "Seven Deadly Sins"? The police find what they believe to be a corpse in a room decorated with hundreds of room fresheners - those nasty trees cab drivers hang on the rear view mirror. An expensive but effective ploy.

"I'm thinking that bulge in your pants is really mushrooms growing under your nuts."

"Can you spell soap? How about anti-perspirant?"

"I know you said you had a bath recently, but could you define "recently?"

"You smell like a urinal in a police station.....that hasn't worked in 12 days.......with a Parodi cigar and 256 decaying cigarette butts .......next to an overflowing toilet.......with huge floaters........and a junkie-wino barfing in it."

Thanks for all your help. The situation has resoved itself as i don't think i will be coming to Whitby after all. Yes my friend will still smell, but at least it wont be going up my nose. See if you can sniff him out.
You'll just have to meet me another time Patrish.

Whoooo nice put downs Spaw, must remember them....

We have a guy in our office who insists on spraying himself with deodorant actually IN the office - gave me the wheezes every time..... so sometimes not being smelly has it's problems too.... He had to be formally requested to attend to his toilette in the appropriate room..... or else go with me to the hospital every time he precipitated an asthma attack!

Er... I know it's doesn't help in this case but there is an article in this weeks New Scientist that shifts the blame for divorce (statistically) on scents and perfumes hiding natures calling cards and confusing the olefatory senses which are looking for comlimentary cues (vis vis the respective immune systems).
I guess between friends it serves as a barrier signal.
And is working?

Hose line is it anyway?
