Everything Else

Should I tell my classmate she stinks?


 
The girl who sits beside me in my English class smells HORRIBLE. I don't care if she decides not to shower or whatever, but the thing is that even after class, the smell is still there. I end up smelling like her for the rest of the day, and I don't know what to do about it! I don't want to tell her, but I don't want to switch seats either.


There’s only two options in this situation: either tell her or don’t. If you don’t want to tell her, then the best thing to do is switch seats so you don’t have to deal with the smell. You could also try a body spray after class to take the smell off of you, but that’s a hassle to do everyday.


Telling her won’t be easy, but it might get her to change her cleaning habits. If you’re friends with someone who is close to her, you could think about talking to her friend and seeing if she can say something. People with body odor would rather be told by someone they know than just an acquaintance. If you do tell her yourself, be really kind about it and make sure you tell her in private. Lots of times people who smell bad don’t even realize it, and appreciate someone telling them!
