Smelly classmate sitch

There's this girl in three out of four of my classes, and she smells REALLY bad. It's not like a one-day thing; it's been consistent since the beginning of school.


She's a nice girl, but she smells so bad! One of my teachers even commented on how bad it smells in class. And now I have to sit beside her. What should I do?

Yikes—this is a sticky sitch. But if you believe it’s really a huge problem, maybe you could try giving her a holiday gift. Buy her your favorite type of sweet smelling lotion or perfume. But make sure to give it to her in private. That way, it seems like you’re being nice and no one will notice the reason behind it.

If you don’t feel comfortable doing this, maybe go to the teacher in private and give her holiday scented air fresheners for the classroom, like cookie-scented or Christmas tree-scented.

Other than that, you can always try getting assigned to a different seat, but you’re gonna have to learn the lesson of grinning and bearing a tough sitch.
