Is there a nice way...

Recommended Posts

...to tell someone their breath stinks without hurting their feelings?

depends who it is and your relationship with them. some people you can just tell them and they'll thank you for letting them know. if you're not that tight with them you could try writing it to them?? idk. offering gum or mints is always a good idea. eat a piece yourself first then offer it to them.

honestly i think most people know when their breath stinks (at least i know when mine does) there just isn't anything they can do about it at the moment

me neither, i see it as a personal favor. same thing goes for boogers in plain view, food in teeth/on face, etc....

Usually if somebody has a piece of gum and then offers me one, I ask, "What, does my breath stink?"  ;D

Hey if they do, cool. I'd rather somebody tell me about it so I can do something about it, rather than go around offending people.

if i had it my way i'd choose to live in a world where people were brutally honest. no bush beaten. no candy coatin, just, "hey man, no offense but your breath smells like toe cheese stirred into some frat kids bm after a night of old english, wild turkey and krystal burgers." "oh ok thanks man, i'll go brush my teeth/buy some tic tacs".

Send that idea to TicTacs. Maybe they can make it a commercial.

I prefer to be told I have ars mouth.

We had a guy a worked that had straight up ars mouth.  I would rather sniff the ars end of a donkey then smell his breath.  We used to put tooth paste, tooth brushes, floss, gum, mints and mouthwash in his work mailbox, hoping he would get the hint.  That was before we found out he had some kind of mouth/gum disease.

Another workmate had such bad breath that you couldn't ride in the same car and have a conversation without putting the window down.

Just say "no offense,but dude you need to take care of that breath." Offer gum or mint helps too.

I had to tell one guy he stunk really badly because my supervisor(woman) was scared to do it.He actually thanked me and we joked we gotta smell good for the ladies in the place.LOL

At work, we ask the offender if he has been chewing on wolf s***

That' a nice way...right?

Yup. Little square laxatives. Eat them on the way home because you don't want to be too far from the john when the intestinal gurgles start.

The funniest version I've heard was a buddy of mine asking some dude what he had for breakfast.

The dude said pancakes.

My bud said you could have fooled me. It smells like you ate bowlful of buttholes.

I wouldn't suggest using that one. It almost started a fight. The dude wanted to fight me because I was laughing so hard.

I have the same problem. A good buddy of mine has horrible breath constantly. Gum and mints dont help at all. I thinks it's either his tongue ring (kinda douchy for a dude), or he doesn't floss. I want to say something in the worst way but I don't want to offend him, and I don't want him wondering " how long did he not say anything for"... No easy way to deal with this subject...

I don't care if I offend you...if you have bad breath I will tell you, if your offended, that's your problem. Actually, offending people is one of the things I do well.

Yo Mamma breath so stinky, when she goes to the bar she orders listerine on the rocks. :)

Personal hygiene is very important... I used to work for a dude that could literally strangle the entire conference room in 15 minutes or less. Either stop eating brown trout from the toliet or get a better dental plan; something level 5 hazmat approved.

Just offer them a piece of gum, and if they say no say no I think you want a piece!  :D
