Miss Information is annoyed by poor hygiene

Ok, the heat wave has subsided. This is no reason for so many of the library customers to have stopped bathing. There are always a few bad smelling patrons, the Guy with the Little Hat who Eats Too Much Garlic, for example but the non-pungent usually out number them. Not this week, however when Miss Information has been surrounded by the seriously stinky.

It is so bad that she has started to recognize customers by their odors. She'll have her head down and get a whiff of someone and think "Oh, Hoodie's here. He's late today-- not because he showered, though."

She gently reminds the patrons that while the price of gas has risen enormously recently, the price of soap and deodorant have remained relatively stable.

What Miss Information Thought About in Corpse Pose
Miss Information had a moment of sadness during corpse pose this week. Unfortunately the hunky instructor Yoga Boy is abandoning the class. He didn't come right out and say it, but Miss Information is certain that her inability to perfect Downward Facing Dog pose has broken his gentle spirit and he's moving across the country to find people more like him--people who can get their feet flat on the ground while sticking their butts in the air. Before leaving he introduced the class to the new instructor, New Yoga Boy, who is sadly not nearly as attractive as Outgoing Yoga Boy. It annoys Miss Information that she even noticed this because dammit, isn't yoga supposed to make you all serene and content and judge people not by their outward appearance, but by their inner beauty and their ability to teach a decent Sun Salutation? Well, maybe she'll learn that from the new guy...

I don't get the whole BO thing, perfectly normal people going about reasonably normal business but reeking to high heaven.

Perhaps there are occasions where the culprit's water is off, or there was some emergency rush to get out the house in the morning and in which case some leniancy can be given. Repeat offenders, however, should be taken round the back and shot.
