What's it smell like behind the ears?
I think about that often and check it our regularly. Also, some other smelly places: the belly button (no matter how hard you try to keep that cave
clean), arm pits of course, behind the knees, inside the ears, inside the nose, that eye cheese that collects in the corners (does it smell?), the
butt crack (usually not as bad high as it is low), for a man: underneath the...eggs, and we can think of some other "adult" places that may, on
ocassion, get skunky.
Then there's, toe cheese. That stuff can REEK!
How about people with rotting teeth talking to you at close range? WOO HOO! If you work with people like that it is always good to have plenty of
gum and mints handy (for them, not for you). I could never be a dentist because the smell of plaque and decay would make me want to slit my wrists
(maybe that is why they have a high suicide rate - it's the plaque smell NOT the being hated by everyone).
What about people that smell like they pooped their pants? I had a young kid working for me at one time and he smelled like he never wiped his ass.
I finally had to tell him. THAT was awkward.
Funny, my wife had a young lady working for her that smelled so bad in the crotch, that other employees complained about it. My wife had to discuss
this with her in her office. "Maybe you should see a doctor?...blah blah blah".......The sad thing is, she had to have the same talk with her again
about a month later. The first time, my wife made it clear to her that she DID NOT want to have to discuss it again.
I had a friend years ago that had no sense of smell. NONE. I had never heard of such a thing. The sad thing was, he always had bad athlete's foot
and could never smell how horrible it was. If he took his shoes off, it was all over. The house would smell like his feet for a week after he left.
He was a good looking kid too. But....no one could get past those feet. They couldn't see his face for the feet.
edit to add: In re-reading my post, it occurred to me: it would have been great to set up my friend with no sense of smell with the young lady with
the rotten crotch. There's a lid for every pot!
