    With the weather heating up, I'd like to provide some friendly reminders to my fellow PT employees. With trailers heating up to a scorching 120 degrees in many locations...

    -- Please ensure that you're wearing anti-perspirant. You stink. We can smell you. And AXE Body Spray is NOT an anti-perspirant. You know what's worse than working alongside somebody reeking of B.O.? Working alongside somebody reeking of B.O. and AXE Body Spray. You have no excuses. You can get a stick for a buck (Dollar Tree, 99c Only) and it'll last you all summer.

    -- Please put on clean clothing at least every other day. I see guys dripping in sweat so badly they ring their shirts out... then wear them EVERY SINGLE DAY that week without washing them. The stench is so bad I feel like turning to nasal irrigation. You can get decent work clothing at Salvation Army & Goodwill for cheap when they run sales. Again, no excuses!!

    -- And finally... PULL YOUR PANTS UP. You're not a rapper, you're not a gangsta, and nobody wants to see your big hairy butt crack. You do realize you primarily work around other dudes? Then again, wasn't the origin of "sagging" ...

    you know if you're a driver and wear cologne, you have to rollup the short sleeves at least 2 times AND wear 1 size too small shorts. If you are going for the win then sporting a toothpick between your lips is required...;bonus points if your name is Rico, or Tommy

    Individuals that sweat at work are most likely not following safe work methods... Bagels, as a seasoned part-timer it is your obligation to remind these individuals to "work safe". (Following the 8 keys to lifting and lowering) I believe this should help alleviate your problems at work....

    LOL! Please explain to me how sweating correlates into not following safe work methods. When trailers sit in the yard baking in the hot sun all day, reaching a scorching 120 F or higher, you're going to sweat even if you stand there drinking water and scratching your butt. Especially if you live in an incredibly humid climate like I do.

    :) :) :) Doesn't shock me....

    If your sweating are you sure you want to be scratching your butt?

    Problem is, UPS cant fire someone for things they cant help.

    Overall, I learned I wasnt using a good soap and the right under arm stick. Dial, the gold bar, is the best soap of all time. And a white base under arm stick last forever in heat and sweat.

    Keep hating on me guys, I love it. Dont my job for a week, I bet nearly 100% of you would be running for the hills. You mock the wrong god, sorry, I guess it happens, eh?

    Bad advice, bagels. Antiperspirants can backfire in certain situations and cause a person to sweat even more. Think of a bursting dam.

    Daily showers and simple deodorant should keep us PTers smelling decent... it's nice to keep a week's worth of work clothes, too. Kind of a shame that it's to the point where you feel you need to remind people how to practice basic hygiene, though...

    I read the link to the other thread - and as a wife and mother of guys who work hard and who have been actively involved in several sports, let me give my experience in this "smelly" thing. It is possible that "body odor" is not the problem - if a person is using good hygiene.

    If you have clothing that get wet with sweat and then is wadded up and thrown in the dirty clothes hamper you will have a problem with those clothes even after they are washed. When you wear them and then begin to sweat - there is an unbelievable odor that can emerge from your clothing - but people think it is body odor - even with proper hygiene. If the clothing is white, I use bleach - if it isn't white - I always use vinegar in the wash with arm & hammer liquid laundry detergent. Once that smell gets into clothing, and it goes through the dryer - it is "set". It may take several washings with vinegar to get that smell out - but eventually it will come out. Then continue to use vinegar in each load.
