Hehe.. Now that you are here, I need your help. Other people do too. Let me share a quick true experience before I get your answer.
Sometime ago, I was in a group meeting with a couple of colleagues, we were having a kind of discussion that required arguments. It went on well until someone I believed was a friend, got really inspired and started giving a motivational talk. We were all eager to hear what she had to say until our noses made us hear otherwise. We began to ‘hear’ a kind of smell. The smell was just as inspirational and motivational as the words she was trying to say. It inspired us to want to run away People couldn’t blink, they couldn’t even breathe, there was a sudden silence in the already noisy group. It was like an angel passed by.
My friend must have thought she was an awesome public speaker with the silence accorded to her. So I just waited for her to finish her statement. As she did, everyone took a break. We all needed the fresh air. The smell that was emitted must have ranked higher than a fart. So as a good friend, I decided to call this my public speaking friend to a corner and I gently told her her mouth wasn’t smelling right, that she should find a quick way to deal with it and come back with a proper breath. I said this words as cautiously as I could and even apologized before starting the statement.
That’s how my friend began to shout at me, baptizing me with many drops of the smell causing saliva. Telling me that I was rude, and a liar, that she brushed that morning and there was no way her mouth could be smelling. She thought I was trying to embarrass her, I apologized as she walked off. She never spoke to me for a long while. Whether she later discovered I was right or not, I have no idea. But I have wondered since then if there is a good way to tell someone their mouth is smelling, or one should just watch them share the love, and move in with it?
What do you think? Why do you think my friend acted in such a manner? Are there better ways to show people their flaws that disgrace them in public? Have you ever had an experience like this or something similar? How did u deal with it. This may be very funny, but its rarely discussed. So say something, your views are important.
