Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (How would you handle this?)

My daughter told me about a friend of hers who recently opened up one of those game shops. For those of you who don’t know these are stores with games in them for people to play. Most times you will get younger kids coming in to play. Anyway, this shop has already been opened but there are some problems that need to be fixed. It appears that one (or some) of the patrons have a terrible issue with “body odor.” Obviously it is a hygiene problem that is so bad it creates an uncomfortable situation for other customers. They have complained about it (and I don’t think you can ignore something like this). What should the owner do? I heard that the owner contemplated putting a sign out and alerting people that they may be asked to bathe before coming into the establishment. I said this sign could be very insulting to some people. If anyone is complaining then it might be a good idea to confidentially talk to the person and “let him or her know” than others are complaining about their hygiene. This would give the culprit some privacy without making every thing seem so “demeaning.” It would also be good to make sure you let the person know that it is “others” who are complaining and not just you. That way the offender shouldn’t take it as a “personal issue” against you. Some people may have a hygiene problem and not even know. Telling them in a nice way could help them. The key words for all of this is to do things “confidentially” and “privately.” That way you can gain respect from all parties involved. My daughter’s friend mentioned this to her through private email on Facebook. She asked me what I though so I told her. I do hope that I gave her the right advice. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.

KC and Brett
