    Laziness

    I've lived with people with bad hygiene (boarding school, not my family!) and I've noticed that all of them are very, very, verrrry lazy. We're talking about the kind who just wake up and get on the computer and stay there the entire day. These days, I am kind of like that too (I...

    Why Are People So Disgusting?!

    This morning I woke up and went to the bathroom to brush my teeth and get ready for work. My uncle (who unfortunately I live with) was in the bathroom before me. He apparently had dropped a deuce and didnt even bother to flush! Not only did I have to smell his foul stench when...

    Seriously, why is it

    so bad to be clean? If you have a job interview, they won't hire you because of bad hygiene. If you don't take care of yourself properly you will have problems. Please, always take good care of your body :)

    Lack Of Self Love Is A Reason.

    To some of you people who don't understand why some people have bad hygiene. Sometimes it is simply because they are LAZY. And do not see the reason to bath daily. That is one side of the coin. But the other side is a more serious side and it shouldn't be laughed at because it is...

    How Can They Stand It Themselves?

    I believe personal hygiene is just a given.  Please, all it takes is a toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, and water.  That's about it.  How can some people stand to not brush their teeth?  Not only is it nasty, but what about the dental bills?!  There...

    Have Some Consideration, For God's Sake

    My husband's a lawyer in a law office about 30 miles out of the city. When he was a lawyer in an office downtown he had a different clientele. Now ... well ... I'll tell you something -- if you have a real aversion to people and being real and real people, don't be a lawyer...

    Really? Take A Shower.

    I really DO NOT understand people who will go out in public KNOWING that they smell like ****. Unless you're living on the street or you dont have running water, what is your excuse? Just take a shower! I mean I'm not saying that I'm the cleanest person in the world, but...

    How Hard Is It To Be Clean?

    I grew up in an era when good personal hygiene was the norm, rather than the exception. We all learned the obvious things at an early age: the importance of brushing and flossing, using mouthwash, going to the dentist at least twice a year (and more often it we needed to); taking...

    Unbelievable Smell

    I was a cook for a good number of years, and I have a fairly well developed sense of smell. I was very fastidious about food becoming stale, so it was rotated in my kitchen (I was the manager) with military precision. If something smelled a little off, out it went, I insisted...
