Please Portlanders, take a shower. I work with the public and I have to say a large number of you need to clean up. You just plain stink. I'm not talking about the people who rode their bikes to where ever and are sweaty, or who have been working out, or have been working all day, but those of you who just haven't bothered to shower for days. You look nice, your clothes appear clean, but your hair and bodies reek. It's embarrassing to let someone into a dressing room after you've been in there CAUSE IT STINKS! A shower takes very little time in the morning. Get some hot water, some soap, and fucking clean yourself up! There's nothing hip, cool, or trendy about assaulting others olfactory senses with your lack of hygiene. To those of you who do take the time to bathe, thank you. It is appreciated.
