The Great Unwashed

We have just been to town and decided to browse through the racks in my local independent music shop.
There were crowds of 15 - 20 year olds which were using the shop mainly as a meeting place probably because they think they look cool hovering around the "Metal" section. Anyway, it wasn't long before I was overcome by this awful smell of B.O. It was overpowering and we beat a hasty retreat from said shop to get some fresh air. When discussing this my partner likened it to his working experience in Saudi Arabia where similar smells abound amongst the local populace, particularly when the weather got colder and for some reason they didn't think they had to wash so often. He likened it to putting two peeled onions in a plastic bag and shaking them around, open up the bag and whaaah !! it hits you.
Is it me or do our young people really not like washing often. It certainly is flipping anti social I have to say. If you cannot afford a decent eau de cologne, Lynx is cheap enough !! Corrrr.
