reminds me of one of my favorite scout skits

two young scouts are arguing about Super Sugar Blasters! or some such imaginary candy thing. They are facing each other and one says "It's candy!" and the other replies "It's a breath mint!" "Candy!" "Breath mint!" "CANDY!" "BREATH MINT!" as they approach each other until they're practically nose to nose. Then one of them backs up a step and waves his hand in front of his nose as he makes a face and says "You're right. It's candy."

I lol every time.

Anyhow, it's my policy to *always* say, "Yes, thanks" when offered a breath mint or a piece of gum. I might not know my breath offends them, and even if it doesn't, hey, *free candy*!
Also a very stable genius.

Shit, just tell her, in an unmean way. She really might not be aware of it. As uptight as a lot of women are about their appearance, I can't imagine she'd willingly walk around with the stank-breath.

Can't certain circumstances w/diebeetus cause funky breath?

Also, not flossing. Had to remind my (21 yr old) stepson to start flossing again the other day - his breath smelled like death.

Diabetes breath tends to smell fruity.

She might just like garlic, onions, and pickled eggs for lunch or something.

Try making the gum offer look natural, like have some yourself and then offer, after a few times you can just offer.

Or you can ask a supervisor HR to handle it. When in doubt, delegate.

My younger sister and her friend once told me that the friend used to have really, really breath. They said she had "doo doo breath." It turned out that she needed to scrap her tongue. I think it was her dentist who taught her that she needed to scrap her tongue, especially the far back part. Her breath has not smelled like doo doo since.

She scrapped her tongue? Seems rather drastic.

George Carlin did a bit about bad breath. It ended with the guy who got scope in his locker going berzerk, climbing a bell tower with a rifle and shooting people.

would any of you kind souls have perhaps a gentler way to break this to her?
does she have an internet connection? send this link to her.
