Soap ToothPaste Wash Cloth And A Towel
Standing in line waiting to check out at our local grocery store I was taken aback by the strong scent of the person in front of me. I certainly did not wish for others that were standing behind me to think for a moment that the foul odor that was floating around was coming from me. I enjoy taking showers and baths, using liquid soap from Victoria's Secret and washing my hair. There is nothing like the smell of a fresh towel that has fabric softener laced through it, giving you that clean sense of freshness. I continued to rub my nose, turning around cautiously, pretending to look at the magazine rack, but I was being overtaken by the body odor that was in front of me. The person certainly did not appear to have any issues with there own scent, but if I wanted to smell a skunk I could have gone into the woods at least then I could have ran away from the profuse odor.
"How are you today?", the cashier asked the gentleman in front of me. " I am doing fine ," he said with a big cheesy grin. She smiled back graciously rubbing her nose. As the belt was moving I proceeded to remove my items from the cart and place them onto the rolling counter as quickly as possible. Scanning quickly through his items, there was not any soap, toothpaste or any type of body products that were necessary for proper hygiene in his group of items. His hair looked like it had not been washed in months, his finger nail beds were lined with little particles of anything that could be placed under them. Realizing I was being judgemental and trying to be cordial, quietly I slid a bar of soap into his items along with a box of toothpaste without him taking notice. The cashier watched but said nothing as she scanned them allowing the bagger to place them in the bag. "Paper or plastic?", the young man asked. " Plastic would be fine," the gentleman replied. Continuing to place my items on the belt I could barely handle the odor anymore, the cashier could not move quick enough. Watching his total on the monitor and seeing the roll of cash in his hand, I knew he could afford to take a bath or a long overdue shower. " Your total is three hundred-sixty-five dollars and twenty one cents." The cashier chimed. Slowly he unrolled his roll of hundred dollar bills and handed them to the cashier. "Would you like any help out today, Mr. ^&%&^ ?" the young man asked. " No thank you," he replied. Quickly he walked away ,stopping at the service counter ignoring what was going on at the register all that were in the lane where he was located was happy that he had gone. The cashier proceeded to grab an aerosol can and spray the air quickly. "Thank God," I said to myself a breath of fresh air. I did not feel any remorse especially when I went out to our vehicle and he was getting into a brand new Chevrolet 1/2 ton pick-up truck.
I know by now what you are thinking, "Maybe he was getting off of work." I don't think so his clothes were wrinkled not dirty, it looked like he had slept in those clothes for days. I am not trying to be judgemental as harsh as it sounds, but people need to use soap and toothpaste is readily available and can be purchased at any grocery store, 99 cent store, or pharmacy for mere pennies.
It is so complicated to tell someone when they smell foul, but for goodness sake use soap, water, a fresh wash cloth and a towel. Toothpaste makes your teeth clean and eliminates all of the garbage on your teeth and tongue that are accumulated. Mouthwash freshens your breath and a person feels so much better when cleansed from top to bottom. Body odor is the worse thing a person can have, it certainly is not attractive nor appealing when you are standing next to a stranger,who wants to smell someones animalistic scent? How many of you find that attractive? I don't care if you are a man or a woman clean the body, the hair, wash the booty and brush those teeth! Your are not an ice cube you will not melt when warm water is applied , there isn't any wicked witches and we do not live in Oz. Soap, toothpaste, wash cloth and a towel are a great investment and beneficial for your well being.
