I must preface this post by saying that I am very conscientious about oral hygiene. I try to brush AND use mouthwash twice a day. Yes, I don’t floss as much as I should but whatever. With that being said, I’m very aware of my breath when I’m at work. I usually keep a supply of mints in my desk but today I was plum out. As luck would have it today was also one of those bad breath days that you have nightmares about. I don’t know if it was left over from what I ate last night or what but it was bad. There’s usually food or something laying around the office that you can “freshen up” with but today there was just coffee…great. About 15 minutes before I was about to duck out and go to lunch someone came into the office and broke down in tears. It’s really awkward trying to empathize with someone and make them feel better when you feel like you’re dropping a stink bomb every time you open your mouth. I'm thinking of sending her an email saying "apology re: halitosis, will have mints next time"
