Trixie Tuesdays: How to tell a pal: YOU STINK

During recent events in my home a guest was, how do you, quite odoriferous. Being a lady I didn’t want to be mean or rude and just come right out and blurt to her : YOU STINK but how does one go about mentioning the unmentionables to people?

When I am at a loss for what to do or for some sage advice I turn to my handy dandy little guidebook…

211 Things a Clever Girl can Do by Bunty Cutler (There is also a book for boys too 211 a Clever Boy can Do by Tom Cutler)

So here are some tips if you have to tell your pal…Peeeeyewww…

(Disclaimer that I find the majority of the items from this book humorous not real…)

  • Make an occasional comment like “What is that curious scent”
  • Open a window near her
  • Leave deodorant in the ladies room or at her desk or room
  • Buy strongly scented flowers and give them to her/him
  • Offer occasional spritz of air freshener in her direction and ask if she likes the fragrance
  • Introduce a policy that stipulates clean clothes and individual responsibility for personal hygiene
  • Ping her email anonymously letting her know
  • Or see what you are made of and tell her straight up, but please tell her in private, don’t make a scene and try as you can to BE KIND as you can because there could be other mental, emotional or medical reasons why they are having those issues
  • But if you have no luck, she’s a bitch to you, or tells you where to stick it…if fighting back is your savor, leave her a bag of sardines. Or you could hose her down with the fire extinguisher  … if all else fails you will feel better

As I said in the disclaimer,  I do find most of these funny and humorous but there were SOME decent tips.

If you have anything further that you want to add I would love to hear your comments or suggestions.

Until Next Time,

XOXO Trisha Trixie
