If I can smell your body odor, then you need a bath. Period.

I detest smelling people's body odor. Take a bath, shower, whatever. But don't subject people to your funk. I go through so much Lysol because of spraying it after people leave my office and their rank smell remained. You stink. Body odor does not smell good. Soap and deodorant at minimum. A little mist of perfume, cologne, or body spray never killed anyone either. If you insist on leaving your smell behind, at least make it a nice fragrance. OMG people are so disgusting!

Vent complete.

If you're overly sensitive, not always. But if your like me and only notice when they really are being nasty, then I agree.

There are some people who can't help it. I went to school with a girl who had stone kind of glandular thing, no matter how many baths she took, hey body just produced this odor. There was nothing she could do, there is no cure for that type of thing. I understand what you are saying, but it may not be the persons fault. Just a thought.

One thing I have learned living here is that Russians REALLY DON'T like to bathe...even in the heat.  The woman that sat next to me for most of my Ulpan class was Russian - she would apparently bathe once per week - on Saturday sometime because on Sunday morning she didn't stink - but by Thursday I was gagging.  And she wasn't the only one - half my class was Russian and by the end of each week you didn't want the teacher to close the door!  I thought a few times about buying everyone in the class a gift - soap and deodorant....but I assumed my money would be wasted.  

It is HOT here in the summer - 100*+ pretty much every day.  I know water is to be conserved....but, seriously people - a few baths each week are OK!  

Wow, it does feel better letting that out.

 I hate smelling it no matter what. But when it lingers even after they're gone, it's out of hand.

 Well I live in the US where bathing frequently is supposed to be part of the culture.

Did using perfume or something help? That would suck...I hate smelling after I'm done at the gym, couldn't imagine it being all the time and not being able to do anything about it. Poor girl.

I know a couple people who shower in the morning, put on deodorant, and stink by 11am.  You know what's worse than body odor?  Body odor AND perfume/cologne!  You just get overwhelmed by BOTH smells, they don't really cover the BO up at all.  Some people are just unlucky I guess.  

Though you can usually tell when they are putting forth an effort and when they just haven't showered in days.
