I’ve been around long enough to know what halitosis or bad breath is. But I’ll tell you this much, until I went to my local Wal-Mart here in Concord NC the other day I had never known how bad bad breath could really get. I found this out when I went to the cashier to check out.
What I should have noticed was why all of the other open isles for checking out had long lines and this one did not. Well there was a reason for it, but I did not find out until I had unloaded the majority of my groceries onto the conveyor belt. Then this stench that smelled like raw sewage hit me.
It started lightly and then kept building. At first I thought it was just some toilets or something that had overrun in the Wal-Mart store. But the smell kept getting worse and worse. Then when I was in front of the Wal-Mart cashier and they were talking to me I got the full brunt of their halitosis.
It literally smelled like something had died inside of their mouth. It was so awful I had to stand as far back as I could and I almost fell over from it. I just paid the lady and got out of there as fast as I could. I could not believe how bd that smell of her breath was. It was worse than the local sewage plants when the wind blows in the wrong direction.
It was no wonder that the isle that she was in was completely empty of customers. No one could stomach this stench coming out of her mouth. This is a new low for Wal-Mart. Or maybe they’re trying to scare off their customers with their minimum-wage employees. I don’t know, but someone could have used a whole can of Febreeze on her and it still would’ve stunk horribly.
Either this person was dying from the inside out and smelled like it or they hadn’t brushed her teeth in years. There is no excuse for halitosis or bad breath that bad. Besides they work in a store where they sell all kinds of products to include tooth paste and toothbrushes of all sorts, styles and brands.
Apparently dental hygiene is not a requirement for a cashier’s position at Wal-Mart. I have since found that there is a closer Wal-Mart to me on South Tryon in Charlotte North Carolina. So I will not be back to that Wal-Mart store in Concord with the lady with the world’s worst case of halitosis! Besides breath that is that bad must be a health code violation of some sort. It would have to be – you could kill someone with breath that bad!
