    I was just joking about the old spice. I’m no big fan of cologne. Did I spell that right? Col-o-g-ne. Where did the spelling of that word get stupid?

    Anyway...I remember buying a car at the Volkswagen dealer. The finance manager stunk of a high dollar cologne. He had 2 separate bottles on the floor. I was like “dude, why do you need that much smell good junk?” He couldn’t come up with a good answer

    From that moment, I just figured I don’t need a strong smelling junk. Just no stank stank

    I remember when I was growing up, my parents had an old school satellite dish, you know, one of the 18’ jobs that rotates.... anywho, after a big wind storm, it would go off kilter... the guy who they had service it smelled like week old clothes, and BO so strong, my mom would open the doors and windows after he left.... that has always stuck with me. I NEVER want to smell like that guy...

    My cousin loves that Axe spray cologne. You could gag a maggot when he walks into a room.

    Agreed. And some are not so keen at picking up on the customers non verbal cues and just keep on going. This happened a lot in a former I used to work for and one person was more aware of the customer cues than the other. I suggested they come up with a non verbal "signal" (like tugging on the earlobe) for one person to cue the other it's time to stop chatting...the custy has had it.

    You always smell awesome. At least every time I've been around you.

    (Just in case you were wondering if you were one of the ones who doesn't know you smell).

    A customer of mine is paying a claim over a damaged item in someone's home.

    The employee likely didn't do it, but the customer insists he "must have"

    Why?

    "The guy was on his cell phone the whole time and not paying attention to what he was doing"

    Talking on the phone the entire time ranks right up there with BO and/or bad breath

    You need not to just smell clean you need to be clean.

    If you are bathing and doing laundry properly it shouldn't be an issue.

    I usually don't answer the phone while I am with a customer. That's why I have voice mail. If you can't wait a little bit until I call you back, too bad. Probably lose a few customers this way but they're probably ones I didn't want in the first place

    I shower twice a day,
    Jebus man, I shower 2 times a day, and when I do laundry, I use Tide, boosted with borax..... all I’m trying to say, I like to BE CLEAN ALL DAY LONG..... If a guy starts to sweat into his first job, do you really think that you still smell ok after it? What about job #2? Or #3... if a guy thinks he still smells good after sweating for an hour in the morning, he’s sadly mistaken.... whatever, do what you guys want, I’ll keep with my program thank you very much. WE ALL DEAL MOSTLY WITH FEMALE CLIENTS. They have a better sense of smell that we do. DO YOU REALLY THINK MRS PIFINGTON CANT SMELL THAT ASS SWEAT ON YOU?

    This biz is mostly about relationships IMO. Decent job while coming off trustworthy and personable is the ticket.
