when going out in public,please do a quick check to make sure us “shorties” who stand next to (or under) you on the train, in the subway, on the street, waiting on line in Starbucks, or other public places are not going to pass out from lack of breathable air. it would be greatly appreciated if we did not have to hold our breathes each time we walked near you or you walked past us. please take a few moments each morning to show some concern for your fellow (wo)men.
(and if you don’t get what i mean, here’s a translation: GUYS (and gals) if you know you sometimes sweat, PLEASE i’m begging you, wear some deodorant. its very offensive to sit next to someone who went au naturale for the day)September 9, 2011 1:13 am at 1:13 am #809755deiyezoogerMember

addendum: if you are blocking the buttons to the elevator, please be courteous to the opposite gender and press the button so they do not need to play “twister” to call the elevator. Thank you for your concern. Sincerely, Me (the single girl who was trying to leave the floor earlier this afternoon)September 12, 2011 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm #809763bein_hasdorimParticipant
Tab; that’s why in addition to my application of my imported deodorant normally, I also spray some in my pockets,
having in mind all the little peeps.
just so u know Tab;
I have to sacrifice my safety though, and I hope you appreciate it.
When I have to pass dogs on the street, Especially Pit-bulls,
Rottweilers, and Dobermans i have to recite “as I walk through the valley”…
Also, sorry about the other week on the subway when I put my coke
down on that armrest…. imagine my surprise when it said “EXCUSE ME!” That was so embarrassing!
Especially since I had stuck my gum there, minutes before.September 12, 2011 11:55 pm at 11:55 pm #809764
BH, LOL. thanx for the smile
s/t’s i feel like i’m the only one this happens to. oh well…..September 14, 2011 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #809765

And for all those shorties out there; please consider wearing a bell, so us 6″5+ folks don’t step on you by accidentSeptember 14, 2011 7:00 pm at 7:00 pm #809767
adorable, you talking to me or BH?September 14, 2011 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #809768
bpt- you are NOT that tall I promise. I mean both of youSeptember 14, 2011 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #809770
sorry adorable. today was opposite gender problem free so no addendums.September 14, 2011 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #809771
you having issues with the opposite gender?September 14, 2011 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm #809772
when they dont wear deodorant or are inconsiderate, it bothers me. so i guess you can call it “issues”. ok fine i have issues with guys. esp the chatty married ones. but thats a whole ‘nother topicSeptember 14, 2011 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #809773
i have issues with those too. they seem so not settled and happy with themselves to me.September 14, 2011 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #809774
The chatty unmarried ones aren’t any better.September 14, 2011 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm #809775
that is also true. B”H in my school the single “men” don’t seem to be the chatty type. the most chatty that i have seen so far is the one i am peer-adviser for. and even thats not chatty. he just says good morning/how are you. but i think its more politeness than friendliness. (note: he initiates the good morning)September 14, 2011 8:43 pm at 8:43 pm #809776
Does the one you are peer advising use deodorant?September 14, 2011 8:45 pm at 8:45 pm #809777
the married ones make me sick. they are so not normal.September 14, 2011 8:54 pm at 8:54 pm #809778
tums, GROAN. there is a single guy in my school (my year) who does not. i dont get why his sisters dont tell him its gross.
adorable, this guy is extremely not normal.September 14, 2011 9:07 pm at 9:07 pm #809779
They’re normal. Otherwise they’d be marching in the pride parade. But they’re bad.September 14, 2011 10:06 pm at 10:06 pm #809780
sorry. wasnt clear. was talking abt 2 dif guys. single guy sans deodorant and not normal chatty married guy. the single guy B”H does not talk to girls besides for q’s to clarify classes. and the married guy is no longer in the school so its no longer an issue on my partSeptember 14, 2011 10:20 pm at 10:20 pm #809781minyan galMember
I once had an appointment with a supposedly great doctor. It took months to get the referral appointment. When I finally got to see him, it was a warm summer day. His office was about 6′ x 6′ – almost claustrophobic in size. Imagine my surprise to find out that this “great” healer eschewed (I have always wanted to use this word) not only deodorant, but basic personal hygiene. His shirt was a dingy whitish-grey shade and even his tie was stained. I couldn’t tell you anything about the appointment because it was impossible to concentrate – I just wanted to get out of there, the sooner the better because his “aroma” filled the entire room. I never returned for a follow up.September 15, 2011 5:59 pm at 5:59 pm #809782
omg how did others deal with him? im laughing just from hearing the storySeptember 15, 2011 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm #809783bein_hasdorimParticipant
adore; tab; your welcome, it’s the least I can do after the gum incident. Did you try peanut butter? I hear it gets gum out of hair.
Tastes good too! Sorry about the chatty fellows.
I wud never instigate a chat with a girl aside for “Greetings!”
“How art thou?” It works great cuz they usually stay away from me after that. When i am approached, I try 2b a mentsch,
unless I feel they are flirty and non genuine, then I just answer their question curtly and get going.
This is my policy w/ frum girls.
When it comes to non jewish or non religious girls,
i am always careful to come across as kind, intelligent, informative. I believe every interaction that I have is for the purpose of being Mekarev the individual to yiddishkeit, or making a Kiddush Hsm. I try not to take these things lightly.
I am not suggesting any approach, merely promoting awareness of
the opportunities and responsibity we have to act in a way that
our behavior has a positive impact upon whom we come in contact with.
