Bad B.O.

in Odor Stories

On a flight from Oakland to Kona, I was stuck sitting next to a man with horrible body odor. He apparently did not wear deodorant, and I dreaded every time he would raise his arm for something. Add to that the fact that I get motion sickness very easily, and I really thought I was going to throw up right there in my seat. So I spent the whole 5.5 hour flight as close as possible to the window as I could, curled up with a blanket. To make matters worse, it was a full flight, so I couldn’t ask to be moved anywhere. Terrible!

We were at Gatwick London, waiting to board for a flight to DFW. A gal set down beside my husband and he immediately jumped up and shouted at her: YOU STINK! He made sure we were not seated near her for 10 hours!

hey D. Your husband is a fucking asso for such rude behavior.And I'm sure your c#nt stank too.

Hey jag, I used to give a co-worker a ride to work every day.

He stank. We had a discussion. Problem not repeated.

Sometimes it's sad, but even many adults need to be told to wash.

You mentioned c#nt….Yeah. it's usually the little bits that need the most daily contact with water and soap.

If you stink, you are violating the air I am going to breathe. Damn right I'm going to say something.

"jag" you're an idiot and "d" your husband is awesome. If you leave the house smelling like ass you deserve to be outed in public, ESPECIALLY, if you're getting on a plane where your bad habits will affect others for 10 hours with no escape.
