Last week we asked if our government should fend for national heroes, and from the votes we answered No.

***

Today’s poll is somehow ‘unusual’ and it was inspired by a recent event at work. A colleague of mine was approached by another colleague concerning his extreme body and mouth odour.

The end result was nasty with a war of words ensuing…

Some people thought the approach was wrong and tactless. They felt a gift of perfume would have been more appropriate (RME) while some felt he should have been ignored. (How do you ignore MOBO?)

This brings me to today’s poll, will you want to be told your stink status or will you rather not know? How would you even want the message passed to you?

Well for me, I will definitely want to know… erm… *pause* No I don’t think I’d want to know… Infact I don’t have an opinion on this.

What say you?

    I think I'd want to know if I smelled, though I trust my nose and my sense of shame to keep me up to date.

    However, about Mr Approacher, the colleague who bore the news…how did he do it? If he did it in public or mockingly, I can understand that Mr MOBO would react negatively out of shame/embarrassment.

    I think if such a sensitive topic is to be raised, either (1) Do it via anonymous notes etc. or, (2) Get a close friend of the stinky party to tell them.

    I take personal grooming especially the way I smell very seriously, even more seriously than having a handsome face, after all nobody wants a stinky rough shod hunk 😉

    I'd definitely love to know my stink status. However, Mr Approacher needs to do it intelligently. When the onus lies on me to do same, I start offering highly flavored/scented sweets/gums. I also ask for your favorite fragrance, your response determines my action.

    I’m sure I’d know if I “stunk” or not… But for other people, I’d always have tom tom or lemon plus ready to be offered (when I offer 5 times in a row, you’d get the message) … Mouth odors are the worst!

      @sandie_pandie,lol at -> “when I offer 5 times in a row…”, You get the drift ma’m. It’d of course be preceded by coyly avoiding your breath. Like turning my head away when (s)he speak. Way to go girl.

    Too hawt to stink
    As a general rule, there is nothing wrong with politely encouraging ppl to improve themselves. I know ppl can b sensitive to MOBO (catchy name) but if u r told u stink, look past the delivery to accept the message n work on it

    Own the stink. Explain you've gotten through something like what the individual suffers, then offer a solution, not just pointing out the problem.

    I have this same problem at work too. A collegue of mine has some serious Mouth Odour, as in I’m talking pungent, disgusting like something died and has decayed in his mouth. Was thinking of getting him toothpaste and mouth wash but yeah might not go down well… Now, I just stand way off from him when I’m talking to him
