  • I always keep gum on me so i would just pull the pack out and ask if they want a piece....and if they say no and i dont know that person that well i would end the conversation quickly...but if i know them and they said no they dont want a piece i would say yes u do and give them a piece and they would catch the hint

  • I would take out my gum, put a peice in my mouth then I would just hand them a peice and pray that they accept

  • Depends on on how well I know the person. If I knew well I would out right tell the person you need to brush your teeth. If I did not know the person well I would let some one else do the dirty work.

  • I would pull out the gum give my self one first and offer one to them so that they don't get offended.
    If you know them or they are relatives I would be like hunny just because I love you I have to let you know that your breath is not pleasant lol. I just thought I should let you love so you can do something about it. I know if my breath was smelling I would like for some one to address that issue to me so I can treat the problem....
