Re: Smelly

I can remember years ago when I worked in a grocery store we had this one older customer that smelled of terpentine. The smell was incredibly strong and if you tried to breath when you were near him you would literally be choking like if you were just inhaling smoke from a fire or opened a can of paint thinner or nail polish remover and took a deep whiff. He was decently dressed and his clothes looked clean. He must have had some kind of medical or skin condition as his hands appeard to be very hard.

Nice!

Honestly, you can't say anything. It can't come from you. Sorry.

Re: Smelly

You guys are slipping. I can't believe nobody has brought up the famous anecdote about English writer Samuel Johnson, who once replied to a woman who told him "Sir, you smell!" with "No, madame, YOU smell. I stink."

Re: Smelly

Quoting for posterity. We’ll need the evidence when the sexual harassment claim comes out twenty years from now.
