Gotta vent.

So I'm doing my little part-time 5 hrs/week at the wine/beer shop right now. This dude just came in looking for a case of Hofbrau Lager...not the best stuff in the world, IMHO, but I digress.

As soon as he walks past me, the BO stench smacks me upside my head like a sack of doorknobs. WHAT THE HELL!!?? I had to mouthbreathe the entire time he was in here...and it's not like he looked too raggedy or homeless or anything...he was all dressed up in brand name stuff...but he smelled like he's been running a marathon for 3 days in this summer heat without a shower or deodorant. It seriously almost made me gag. He's been gone for a good 5 minutes, and the smell is still lingering.

What is wrong with people? They may as well just walk around sh*tting everywhere. Is it that hard to take a shower, wash your clothes, or at the very least, wear some deodorant? If he can spend $40 on a case of beer, he can surely afford to wash himself and his clothes. Damn.

I was a TA for a lab this summer and there was a kid in one class that had the same problem...sweaty-out-in-the-Atlanta-heat smell. I had to move to the other side of the room to avoid it...I felt bad for his lab partners. Once some guy made a comment about needing to take a bath...I had to bite my lip not to laugh.

I know some people have medical conditions that may result in this...if this is the case I apologize.

In the submarine community there are alot of dirty fxcks. It becomes a health issue real fast. On my last deployment many of the hot-rackers (guys who share bunks in shifts), got scabies and other weird skin problems. Your screwed if you are a clean guy forced to bunk with a pig.

I just don't understand why people are afraid of soap and water. Maybe they bent over in the shower and had a bad experience???

I remember being stuck on an 4 hour flight behind a lady with severe B.O. That sucked as well.

When I was a nuc prototype, one guy had a genetic foot odor problem. Since we bused 90 minutes to the site, he 'volunteered' to bag his feet for each trip. I pitied the sub he was headed to.

Then there was this gay guy I worked with, who didn't bath Thursday-Sunday. Said his BF liked him to save up the smell for the weekends.

Evan!, weren't you mentioning earlier that it's like 200 degrees in Virginia these days, with like 150% humidity?...

I mean, I dislike B.O. as much as the next guy (well, apparently more than the B/F of David's former colleague), but you've got to cut people a LITTLE more slack in August...

Are you actually able to maintain normal hygiene on board? By normal I mean daily shower, shave, etc. I was under the impression that you had to sacrifice certain amenities while underway. Then again, our submarine budget consisted of buying a few old deisel units from the Brits. One caught on fire and we had to call for help. What the hell do I know?

Maybe he was French ?
