And the boss asks you the status report on your progress and the progress report on your status.

In affairs like this, always leave it to your boss.

Even if the BO guy is in the "wrong", he would only take offence and target/sabotage you if you confront him on it. And it's not not meant facetiously. Work is a cut-throat place and you should CYA in all activities.

Tell the situation to your boss and let him/her handle it.

It's impossible to smell anything unless you go sniffing or someone gives you a goodbye hug.
Trust me if someone has BO you can smell it from faaaaaaaaar away. Do you remember the episode of Seinfeld where Jerry's car still had that funky smell in it days after someone who had BO sat in it? MUTANT BO.

Just be thankful that you live in modern times. A few centuries ago people didn't even have the facilities to take a daily bath or shower and deodorant or soap as we know it hadn't even been invented yet. I would think that the stench would have been unbearable but since everybody stank I guess that people just got used to it.

My coworker breath smells like the pits of hell. His entire cube smells. He sits next to his partner and his cube smells, if he's talking to him. We have the cubes with the shorter walls. He has this nasty looking beard. OMGosh! If I need him for anything, I email him.

I had to work across the table from this girl once, and she was known for her bad breath, but I didn`t think anything about it....until that day!!
It smelled like rotton teeth, just a bad odor..pewwww!!! I took it for about 20 minites, and then had to walk away...it made me sick to my stomach.

There's this dude in my office, he's a nice enough guy, but he wears too much aftershave/cologne whatever it is.

The thing that sucks too, is he wears that old school shyt, the stuff pops used to wear, IDK, Old Spice or Brute33, something.

Anyways he apparently doesn't have any friends or a wife cause somebody should be telling this guy to take it down a few notches.

Funny stuff! Maybe you could tell him that his aftershave smells like your Grandpa.
