    i told someone at work

    my machine kept breaking down and the guy fixing had well bad breathe like not been brushed in weeks smell, with food all in between the teeth and terrible BO

    the smell was horiffic and i was gagging so i asked him if he had brushed his teeth today

    he got the hump and told the supervisor i was bullying him!!! WTF he was in his 40s for gods sake

    In the end the HR said that he did have some personal hygiene issues and i wasnt rude

    ok for the people saying it depends on who it is...

    why is it rude to tell some and not others? its not like your insulting them, just simply saying look mate your breathe isnt very nice.... its not like it cant be helped is it. I think its rude for them to talk to you with bad breathe

    Most things depend on how they're said, even if the message has the same meaning. If you put yourself into the shoes of the recipient, then don't say anything that you might reasonably guess would not be appreciated, or would be insulting.

    Look out for bargain deals on mouthwash, and share some when you buy it, eg. Buy one, get one free.

    Overall, let's move away from the anything goes approach, where some might think it's OK to say anything to anybody, whenever they see fit. Also, consider what your objectives are - is it to help them, or to help yourself.

    im always telling my son his breath stinks...i would rather tell him myself than have other teenagers say it to him

    I'd want to know if I was smelly so I could do something about it.
    I don't think it is rude as long as it is done with a bit of tact.:)

    Yeh, like if you can let them know then it stops the embarrassment of having it 24/7 and it getting picked up on by everyone
