True or False. It is considered impolite to tell others that they have bad breath.

  • True AND False.
    It is okay to tell loved ones and the people close to you who won't be offended by your candidness.
    It is not okay to tell strangers, coworkers, a boss, etc. Anyone who would be offended by someone unfamiliar telling them.

  • True, because most anything that is that forward, and has the potential to hurt some one's feelings is considered, "rude."

  • True. Try politely offering gum, they usually get the hint.

  • It can be embarrassing or hurtful depending on how it's done. Anonymously is best if you can....but be tactful!! Remember, they may have a medical condition that causes it and already knows about it.

    But most of the time i'll just tell you anyways. Sometimes the truth hurts.

  • The only person I say that to is my son in the morning when he goes in for his good morning kiss before he brushes his teeth! Otherwise, yes it's impolite.

  • I don't think it's rude to tell someone close like a spouse or child. You just have to do it nicely. I'd much rather hear it before I leave the house, that's for sure. We look out for each other that way.
