Questa volta abbiamo cercato: How do you tell someone they have bad manners/hygiene when they were just raised that way?
I have two friends who this applies to. One (my roommate of 5-6 months) constantly pees on the seat and leaves it there. Then I have to clean the toilet every time I have to use it haha. He is a little stinky but it is because his family has weird (to me) hygiene habits. I am pretty sure he only showers once a week. I’m a very patient and calm person so I am not mad at him but it is definitely a little gross. He has also never had a girlfriend even though he has been interested in girls. They all share the same towel for drying off after a shower, and his whole family sleeps on the floor in our family room when they come to visit.
My other friend simply chews really loudly with his mouth open and makes slurping noises while eating. I once ate at a restaurant with his family and they all ate like that. I feel bad for him because I think it probably is unattractive to anybody that he goes on dinner dates with.
How do I communicate to these people that they’re doing sort of gross things, but not offend them or be rude?
