body odour

I go and play pool with somebody every Saturday in Larnaca. The problem is, he has terrible terrible B.O. I'm suprised his wife doesn't say anything to him.

Problem is, how the hell do I approach this matter? I can't turn around and say "you stink".

Last week, he got in my car and I had to open the windows. He mentioned that the AC would be better as it keeps us cooler but I just said fresh air was better.

Shall I keep a can in the car and as we get there, put some on then offer it to him? what if he says no? Its coming to the point where I'll probably stop going in the summer to avoid the terrible smell.

LOL

That's a tough one! See, you've left it so long without saying anything, that it'll be really embarrassing if/when you do pipe up with the truth.

He will then know that you've been barfing at the whiff from his pits for weeks :shock:

I'd get somebody else to say something, for example - have a friend get in the car with you both and say out loud "Oh my God, which one of you 2 is barking with BO"?

Plus, for the laugh factor alone, that's got to be worth a ring-side seat!!

For the record, where do you play pool? Just want to know so I can avoid it like the plague until BO Baracus has changed his ways!

An alternative way to deal with it is as you're driving say to your friend... 'panagia-mou, are the farmers spreading shit in the fields again???'

He's Romanian, can't pronounce his name so I just call him Jonny. Thats not a bad idea Mihalis lol. Just one problem, with the sea going up to the knees after walking and walking, it may not work out to plan!

Μaybe not, but his feet won't smell!

Really, man, I think this just may be a prob of simply 'no one's ever told the poor guy'. I mean, if he don't know it bothers people, he's not going to do sth about it, is he?

I would think if you just told him nicely and got him a deodorant, as well, it wouldn't be that big a deal. Sure, he'd feel embarrassed at first, but I think it would work out for the best in the long run, both for you and him.

Just be sure to be nice when you tell him. Do NOT go 'you stink'! :lol:
