I work with someone that has bad BO. How can I politely tell them they stink?

Frankness: cut the B.S. The best way to tell this person that they smell is to tell them directly to their face. The problem with being nice to people is that they don’t always understand what you’re trying to say. A quick yet stern talking to usually will seem to clear up most social problems you will encounter. If the problem persists, rig around 3 to 4 automatic air fresheners in the general vicinity of where they work. Either they will stop smelling bad, or they’ll become aware of their barbarian lifestyle.
