I don't know if anyone has posted something like this before, but has anyone ever played someone who really, REALLY smelled?

There's this fellow that I play on occasion for cheap $20 sets. He's always had a bad smell to him, but only if you were close to him (as you can imagine, when he gets down on his shots...). Anyways, yesterday, his smell was unbearable! I stayed as far away from him as I could, but when I came to the table, I literally could not breath, almost like an odor cloud surrounded the table. What makes it even more strange is that the guy is a lawyer, not a sanitary worker or lawn care specialist. You'd think cleanliness is important to him. Needless to say, I lost a set with him and had to quit.

The guy is a really nice guy too, plays in our league (we're both 7s), and we run into each other pretty often. What's there to do? Has anyone else ever had this problem. Should I just run the other direction if I ever see him?

Have you tried spraying him with perfume?

Maybe you can do like the Homicide Cops do; a swap of Vick's Vapor rub on your top lip, under your nose.


Eric >so smelly he can make an Onion cry

Well,

One suggestion would bring your child (if you have one, if not borrow one) around, and let them say something brutally honest about his hygiene problem.. May not hurt him as much coming from a kid, but have the same effect..

Worked coming from my daughter once.... /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

There's one guy at my local hall.
He stinks. He stinks so bad he gives me a headache if he's nearby.
This guy has been told he stinks too. But, he doesn't like to shower I guess. Whatta pig this guy is.
I just stay away from him. I don't like headaches.

That's a tough one.

I used to be a supervisor in a factory and I had to face this problem more than once. In my case I had no choice but to say something to the individual since the working conditions of my other workers were involved.

The first guy I took aside and said "Bob, I think you should shower before work and use some deodarant".

He took offense. He said "Are you sayin' I stink?".

I had to be honest. I just said "Well, you might not notice it but others have said things".

As it turned out the guy never smelled bad again. I believe I did him a favor.

Another guy was a temporary employee. Those guys could be let go for no reason. All I had to do was call the agency and tell them we didn't need the employeee anymore. I did not even have to tell the employee to his/her face.

I wanted to keep the guy because he was a really good worker. He was an easy-going guy and I figured he could handle it so I took him aside and asked him if he usually showered before work. He said "Man I know, I know. I just have a big problem with sweating and I don't know what to do. I sweat in the dead of winter". I suggested a couple of high-powered deodarants for him to try and he did get a little better. He didn't work there much longer. I don't remember what happened but he did not quit because of that.

I was probably only 1 of 2 supervisors in that place that would have the guts to say anything. Most would just put up with it or they would just let the guy go. I've also seen guys put cans of deodarant on a guy's car seat (that doesn't work BTW)

Is the guy a friend? Does it bother folks on nearby tables? You might be doing him a favor by saying something. Or maybe he already knows and there's nothing he can do. Or maybe like Joey and Cass said, he just doesn't care. There's plenty of guys that are like that. I read about them in Dear Abby all the time /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

You are so right!! When there were Monday night tournies at Tacony, this one guy would come in from after playing volleyball and without taking a shower. It was a sharking tactic for him. He really stunk!

Barbara~~~would still call him Stinky if I say him today...

I wouldn't consider him a friend, just an aquantance. He's one of those type of guys that comes in and plays pool, doesn't bother anyone.

I've thought that this was a sharking tactic before too. Once he was in a local tournament and several of the players said that they couldn't stand playing him cause of his stink. He just told those guys to pretty much shut up and just play. He ended winning second and you could really tell that some of the players had a hard time concentrating at the table.

I tell ya, if it's a hustling trick, it works!!!

Twice I had to tell or be in on a meeting where people were told they were offending others. In all instances they came back to work fresh as a daisy for 2 days! Then they went back to being their stinking selves as usual. You can tell him but IMHO it probably won't work!

LOL my lord...this actually happened at UW when I went there. One of the guys stunk real bad and this hot Chinese girl used to play with us and get repulsed by this one guys smell. So when he walked away or shot away from her she would squirt him with some kind of body spray that smelled like lilacs or something. LOL. Too funny.

if u like to play against him tell him in a nice way...it may be that he is just lazy to shower but then again he may have a medical condition that would make him smell veneral disease or something else....

He could also be a crack addict. Nothing more foul than to smell the odor bleeding through the pours of a crack addicts skin. I was overwhelmed one night at leagues about 5 yrs ago and asked my team mate doesn't that guy ever showrer? He told me it was crack. I found this to be true and they had to make a choice between me or him. They chose me.

Regards,

C.C.~~unfortunately, education doesn't dictate morals, cleanliness not values. found that out too.

You just have to get right in his face and say something like: "Yo homes, me and you we cool, and sit like that, but man yo azz be stanking. You best get yo booty in the shower and clean yo sit up cuz otherwise the EPA is coming for yo azz yo!

This approach never fails to inspire greater care in the exercise of daily hygiene.

Send $19.95 for my new DVD- "Man clean yo sit up!"

Always glad to be of service.
