Ask The Eye Stinky Stepson EAU MY

January 22, 2014

Dear Eye View

Recently my 30-year-old stepson moved to town. He has many issues (including alcoholism). My issue is that I can’t stand the way he smells. He wears a musty, rank, cologne that lingers for hours, or even days, unless we wash or deodorize any fabrics in the room. Car rides are horrible. We have politely asked him several times not to use it, and I even suggested that the mild chemotherapy I take might make me extra sensitive to smells. I bought him a different scent to try out, but to no avail. Tonight, he showed up reeking again, and I grabbed my car keys and went back to work. I’m battling a serious, chronic illness, so working extra hours is not more than a temporary solution. It seems ridiculous to be focusing on a smell, when my stepson can’t manage independent living, but its nostril-popping bad. How do I deal with this without putting my husband on the defensive or becoming an evil stepmom? Confused

Dear Confused

I understand your concern.If he’s dousing himself with cologne before a visit it may be to cover the smell of his poor hygiene or the reek of alcohol. It could also be that this scent has permeated all his clothing and even if he’s not slapping it on, his dirty clothes just permanently exude it.Respectfully, your husband should explain that you cannot be around scents and that you’d both appreciate if he got his outerwear dry-cleaned, he laundered his clothes, and showered before coming. If your stepson just won’t do this, then your husband has to visit his son at his place or in the neutral zone.Recomend he set phasers to stunning.

Hope this helps



Kentucky Considering Using Anti-Social Monkeys For Inhome Care

January 21, 2014

Kentucky legislators may soon debate whether to allow service monkeys to  assist paralyzed adults with simple household tasks. A northern Kentucky lawmaker has introduced the bill at the request   of a  family that looked into bringing in a service monkey to assist   their daughter,  who was paralyzed in an automobile accident. The family   found out Kentucky  prohibits the use of service monkeys. “Like all families do, they were searching for ways to help,” Sen. John  Schickel, R-Union, said in a recent interview. “Monkeys do not belong in human homes, whether as pets or service   animals,”  said Sarah Baeckler Davis, executive director of the North   American Primate  Sanctuary Alliance.

She said monkeys are wild animals that need to socialize with their own  kind.





Doctor Offers Vasectomy For Game Tickets Offer To Stub Hub

January 19, 2014

A Colorado doctor has an unusual offer for anyone with extra tickets to Sunday’s AFC Championship Game between the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots: a free vasectomy.

Dr. Steven Broman of Fort Collins is offering to perform the $1,000-plus surgery in return for tickets. A long-time season-ticket holder, Broman and his family will be at Sunday’s game anyway. The extra tickets, he said, would go to his staff. “I had a guy who was ready to pull the trigger, but he said he had only one ticket, so I offered to only do one side,” Broman said. “He didn’t think that was very funny.”

Eyeview Business Gold Futures Rocked By Velveeta Cheese Shortage Some Call For Rationing

January 8, 2014

Kraft Foods is warning consumers about a Velveeta shortage that could temporarily leave shelves across America bare of their favorite cheese-like products.”It is possible consumers in any part of the country may not be able to find some Velveeta products on store shelves over the next couple of weeks,” Kraft spokeswoman Jody Moore told NBC News. Moore said “higher demand” and “a combination of factors” led to the supply chain issues. If you’re in one of the areas experiencing a Velveeta shortage, you’ll just have to ration your usage for the next few weeks until supplies return to normal. “Oh yeah, I’ve got Velveeta,” said Wayde, a manager at an Associated Food Store in Salt Lake City, Utah, who declined to give his last name.
