Our recent company insisted on dousing himself in aftershave …uffda. I aired out the house every morning…perhaps this is why he has trouble finding a gal. Far Guy complained about the bad smell but it did no good. One morning he said “OH ya I forgot that it bothers you.” duh??
The aftershave was really hard on Far Guy’s respiratory system.
Do you think it is tacky if I put a sign on the door that says “You may come in but leave your smelly perfumes and lotions in your vehicle.” OR “If you are wearing perfume or aftershave, shower with the garden hose/bathe in the snow bank before entering.” OR “NO perfume or aftershave allowed…wearers will be doused with aging hog shit.” ( I know where to get some real smelly stuff.) In all honesty I find the smell of hog shit to be much better than any perfume or aftershave out there.
If you are a perfume/aftershave wearer…you have possibly lost your sense of smell. Oh you only wear a little bit? A little bit is too much. Use downy or bounce fabric softener on your clothing…scented lotions or hand soaps? Perhaps that is food for thought?
I opened up the windows upstairs turned on the exhaust fan for several hours after our company left…scrubbed down the bathroom and changed all the bedding to finally get rid of the horrendous “Brut” odor. Smelly company is no fun.
A few more days and I am certain he and I would have had some words…IF I could have gotten one in edgewise. I had forgotten how he likes to talk ...non stop. Good thing he doesn’t live closer…because eventually I would have stuffed a sock in his mouth.
