What's that smell?

So I took a couple of people that work in the pharmacy that I'm at to lunch today. We sit down, have a good meal, and get in some laughs. As we're waiting on the check this couple gets seated in the booth behind us. I would describe the smell as a mixture of urine, rusty butt, and swamp ass. I look over at the people with me (my back is to the back of the people who were just seated) and ask if they smell that. They leaned forward and got a whiff. Yes they smell it too. I do the sniff around and search for the source thing when BAM it hit me like soap in a tube sock. The lady directly behind me was the source of this horrific smell. I almost lost my lunch when I got the full effect of it, literally. Stinky people shouldn't be allowed in restaurants.

I agree!

I don't know what would be worse, though. That smell, or overpowering perfume...

Both suck quite a bit.

One of my coworkers carpooled with me to a meeting across town, and midway though the ride there she cut a fart so nasty I thought I was going to have to replace my passenger seat. Seriously, you could still smell it 2 hours later after the meeting was finished and we got back in my car.

A cop showed up short ago.

Smelled like cheap cologne.

Had to walk away.

I don't know what it is you were smelling because I wasn't there but you were probably smelling disease.

Maybe she has a colostomy bag. She is probably acutely self conscious and doesn't like to go out in public but someone dragged her out anyway.

She may be suffering from systemic Candida which despite all the scuttlebutt isn't just a minor vaginal infection or anything to do with hygiene. It can be a VERY serious body wide fungal infection which evidence now suggests is the CAUSE of cancer.

What do you do at the pharmacy? I thought you would be more up on these things.

Like AnthonyG, I gotta empathize with the 'offender'. I have things pretty good in life, and I often don't smell like a bouquet of roses--I'm sure you don't, either, after a nice long ride. So I try to be careful before making a big deal of the way someone smells (granted, you didn't know the source of the smell before asking your lunchmates).

If the smell is from some ungodly body spray or too much perfume or cigarette smoke, though...

On a related note, my hometown passed an ordinance allowing library staff to evict library patrons who smell too much--the library is right by the bus depot, where a lot of homeless people hang out.

I thought it was a pretty cruel thing to allow, and when I go back in a few weeks, I would love to use it to have some jackass smoker or Axe body spray fanboy kicked out. (I've been feeling very confrontational lately...don't know why)

When you go back to that place order everything to go. You can still eat there, but should Ma Kettle show up again you can grab and go, and fast!!

I was in a grocery store during a heat wave and some Amish women came in. I swear, they could have gagged a maggot. I couldn't walk down an aisle for several minutes after they had been there.
