thread I remember when I was living
in Cambridge in the 90s, an engineer called Mike who absolutely stunk. I remember the Monday he got some Tippex on his arm, and it stayed there all week and was gone the following Monday, suggesting that he basically washed once a week, at the weekend. The office manager did tell him about his smell though, and he'd get better for a while, then would slip back into being smelly again until she told him off again.
