Maybe you've got long COVID and you're smelling things that are not there.

ALL CAPS. let's see if that worked


okay odd. I will try the whole sentence:

I DO NOT SMELL LIKE PISS THAT'S NOT NICE
I was also joking - you could very well smell like piss. Terrible, terrible piss.

Maybe your friend has been "taking the piss", as the Brits like to say. Taking it upon his person.

Get him this album, and maybe he'll take a hint:

Get a can of Liquid Ass to complement his pee fragrance. Here we are again with the scatology. We may be a coterie of oldsters, but inside we're all still 12 years old. (Or perhaps I should speak for myself.)

Re: My not that close friend has a urine smell but no medical issues. How can I tell him without telling

OMG, I went to a youtube of Redd Foxx's You Gotta Wash Your Ass routine and the youtube was put up Jan 2009 and has over 3.5 million views (no clue when the actual stand-up routine was performed, maybe in the late 70s or early 80s?). It is crazy funny, and he deals with a heckler in the audience and I also noticed quite a diverse crowd and some very old ladies in the audience, but they were indeed laughing.

Yeah, hygiene around the private parts is very important. Also, some of the more depressing posts wondering if how you smell something has been effected by Covid, that unfortunately does make me go, hmmm...something to think about. I know that if I ever lose my sense of taste, even briefly, I will probably test positive for Covid when I take a test, but so far so good. The senses, smell and taste, easy to forget they can be heavily impacted depending on if you are ill or not.

I don’t find any of this amusing. As some others have stated, he could quite likely have a medical condition, a urine bag, a bladder control issue, etc. These are not uncommon conditions.

If you want to be a good friend you will tell him in a matter of fact way. Be nice, but be direct. If I had this problem I’d want to know about it.

Oh, don't be such a buzzkill. We're all just trying for some laffs. The serious answer is to do as you suggested.

When you live with medical problems such as these on a daily basis you wonít find them so amusing.

Does the "not that close friend" even actually exist?

I hope he didn't get pissy about you declining the invitation!

BTW, is this your friend?

If you know somebody it is your duty to tell them if they reek and save you and the world from that stench and odor.

More importantly, save that person further embarrassment and ostracism.
