Also, I think that family and friends are used to your smell, and probably know that you have good hygeine and can't help it, whereas others aren't used to it and are offended by it, probably thinking that we don't bathe, wipe our asses,etc. I don't know if it helps or hurts us by not acknowledging the smell. It is kind of nice to not have to worry about b.o. around them, but I think it would probably be more benificial to know when it (the b.o.) is at it's worst and best.
