So, I run into a lot of different people in my job, and occasionally there are people who just have really horrible breath. In fact, just tonight, I had to sit next to a guy on a plane. Couldn't get way from it. It has always bothered me - I can recall a teacher way back in college where it would permeate to the first row. It is worse when they are the people who don't have so much of a concept of personal space and breath in your face. It has gotten me to wondering:
- Is it strange that it bothers me as much as it does? Would this have anything to do with inferior Se? I know I don't have bad breath myself (except for first thing in the morning) because I've asked others, so it's not like this is some sort of projection.
- Don't these people know their breath is terrible and can't they do something about it? Like brush their teeth more often, floss twice a day, brush their tongue, or use mouthwash?
It seems like a curable malady.
