The Odour Coming From My Boss’ Mouth Is UNBEARABLE… READER Writes In

Got this since morning, but decided to hold on till now, cus we already have a reader’s mail this morning, so that we don’t abuse the opportunity. And btw, this one is so funny, yet very delicate cus what you will tell her might help her lose her job or keep it. I feel sorry for her tho.

Morning Ladun,

I am faced with an awkward situation at work. I have a direct line boss to whom I always have to report any of my official activities to before final approval. The nature of my job constantly requires me going to him for possible clarification and first line approval before the overall group head signs off.

My boss has a terrible and chronic offensive breath. At the initial stages, I thought it was due to the fact that he is usually quiet and keeps to himself most of the time; but even now that his new role requires him always voicing out, it just wouldn’t get any better. I feel it’s a medical condition.

I have managed this unpleasant situation for close to one month now to be honest, it is really affecting my job. Most times, I try to look for ways to by-pass him and go directly to the group-head for approvals just to avoid perceiving the breath. He is beginning to take offence to that, not knowing I am not been rebellious or unruly, rather due to his predicament.

Some friends/colleagues advised me to talk to him directly or buy him breath-fresheners or better still mints to always take. I am of the opinion he might take it to heart and act irrationally to me going forth.


Can you please help me ask my fellow LLB readers what I can do?

  1. I flew recently on an International flight to Lagos from London.

    I will say the date of that flight to Lagos on the 5th July. The dude who sat next to me, if u are reading this, abeg una, do something about your breath. Pata pata carry around all these breath fresheners, or those strong mouthwashes, and every 1 or 2 hours, you can use them if its so bad or a health condition . It was a terrible flight for me as the smell almost 'cracked'; my nose. If u noticed, I stopped talking to you and faced my side. It was that bad. It was as strong as a strong cologne would smell and take over the immediate space.

  8. What your boss has is called bad breath, otherwise known as Halitosis. Some people labeled it fowl breath.

    Chronic Halitosis has so many causes from simply being a chronic mouth breather to a more serious cause like having a small pouch in the walls of the esophagus in the neck area where food particles collects and remains for days and weeks if not months and years.

    Simply having dry mouth all the time(i.e not having enough saliva) can also cause fowl breath.
    Believe it or not, part of the job of saliva is to clean and nourish our teeth and gums.
    In the perpetual absence of enough saliva to do that job, we may develop fowl breath.

    Bad gums, poor dentition from not taking good care of our teeth, constantly belching as seen in conditions like Gastroesophageal reflux disease (Google it if need be), chronically smoking cigarettes, being a chronic alcoholic, always having running noses called chronic sinusitis, and a very deadly condition of having pus anywhere in the lung(which is not the case here) can all lead to bad breath. The feeling as if something is dripping down one' throat called Postnasal Drip(seen mainly in children and some adults too) can also cause bad breath.

    Daily licking of pussies can also contribute, especially licking pussies that have been laced with Chlamydia or whatever bugs the bitch may be incubating. Yes o.

    So, your boss may actually be a PLAYA who happens to be serial pussie/cunt licker. LMAO.

    This is not an inclusive list because the causes that I listed here are what I can remember out of the so many causes of bad breath.

    Managing a case of bad breath is more than using breath freshener, mint, chewing gum, or just brushing teeth.

    The management involves and not limited to seeing a dentist who will check and make sure the teeth and gums are okay, seeing an ENT doctor who will check the status of the nose and throat and then a GI doctor if need be.
    If there is a pouch in your boss neck called Zencker' diverticulum( Google it if need be) that is causing his fowl breath, he might need surgery depending on the size and status of the pouch.

    Now, if you are really interested in helping your boss out of this problem, you need to first of all have his trust after befriending him.
    It must be after this, that you let him know how bad his mouth stinks so that he would know that you are sincere and only trying to help him out.

    He might see it as being very disrespectful if you just approach him and start talking about his mouth and before you know it, you may be out of work after being fired for just trying to help.

    You may even decide not to talk to him about it as you are definitely not the only hoe in that office who would have noticed how stinky your boss' mouth is. I am sure other bitches are aware of it and so why do you want to be the one who want to bell the cat and risk your job in the process?

    If your boss is married with kids, his wife and kids should all be aware of his fowl breath, including his homies if he has any.

    Why not let them all tell him how stinky his mouth is and save your sorry ass from taking the risk of becoming unemployed. Abi Eshu tan e ni.

  17. Halitosis could be the result of decaying teeth, bad gums, imploding wisdom teeth or poor oral hygiene. This might be a case of the first two. Difficult to tackle subject. Truth is, he might know he has this problem. Mints and so on are not usually the solution. Rather a dentist as well as a gum specialist -Periodontist- is the only solution. These treatments don't come cheap and may involve extractions, filling, filing and gum surgery. If the patient or potential patient has a close friend, it's best to go through that person or just use yourself as an example to tackle the issue e.g Soji, I just had an extraction which gave me horrible breath, my dentist is really good and is offering a two-for-one checkup. How about you and your family seizing this opportunity? Gum disease can cause blindness, you should seize this opportunity. It's in IKOYI. It works and takes away the blow. Remember, we are all human and gums and mints or mouthwash may not be the solution. DR WISDOM DENTISTRY. IKOYI. Lagos. Click on my ID for further info.
