Nauseating Smells!
« on: September 27, 2006, 10:47:39 AM »
If there is one smell I cannot stand, itís the smell of cooking pancakes.  Today at work weíre having a benefit breakfast for the United Way and wouldnít you know it Ė theyíre cooking pancakes (and sausage) in the conference room next to my cube. 

I donít know where I developed this issue, but the smell drives me up the wall, especially when it clings to clothing and hair ALL DAY LONG.  I wonít even stay at a bed and breakfast for this very reason (due to a pancake incident in the Black Hills this summer  >:( ).

What smells (other than feces) drive you nuts?

Sloppy Joe's! I absolutely cannot abide the smell of this shit when it's cooking! My dad and my brother loved sloppy Joe's, but I would leave the house when  the sauce was cooking 'cuz it made me want to blow chunks.

The smell of olives can really turn my stomach and for once this is my mothers fault.  She used to buy olive-loaf which is comprised of some meat product, infused with olives, formed into a loaf and then sliced for use on sandwiches.  Then again, there were those tuna pies infused with peas and corn and baked in a pie crust, I could not even be in the house when she made those.

Wow, I never realized Olives had a smell.  I'm going to have to check this out when I go home tonight.   :)

Three at the top of my list:

--  Sour milk (probably the worst of the three.)  However I read somewhere that one can extend the life of milk somewhat by putting 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in the milk and shaking it.  It works.

--  Onions (close runner-up.)  I can't take them in any form or fashion...can't even be near them.

--  Kitty cat's stools in the litterbox.  I solve that by holding my nose with one hand while scooping with my other.

At one time I would have added ammonia to this list, but I seem to have desensitized to it a bit now.  It's a good window-washer when added to water.

The smell of someoneís bad breath when youíre speaking with them. Especially if itís the smell of alcohol early in the day.

Asparagus urine.... I love asparagus but it definitely makes for some repulsive Pee Pee.  A close second is vomit, I was once on a plane next to a kid that spent the first half of the flight eating a bag of Cheetos, and the second half of the flight throwing them up   into the airsick bag.. the smell of Bile and Processed Cheese will forever be with me.
Once in New Orleans, they were doing some kind of work on the sewer and the smell of Human Shit in the Louisiana summer heat was almost  lethal. Kinda killed Lunch.
 Another one is Lagerfeld Cologne, there used to be so many queens wearing that crap at a Bar I used to hang out in that I could smell it on my clothes the next day.

Oranges. I hate the smell of oranges. Like many epileptics I experience what's called an "aura" prior to having a seizure. An aura can be any sensation (sight, sound, taste etc) but for most of us it's a smell.

MIne happens to be the overpowering stench of fresh oranges.

MSP...if you don't like the smell of pancakes cooking, I can only imagine your thoughts about pancake batter, which by the way bears a remarkable similarity to...um...how do you put in "nicely"....um...can't.  It smells like cum.  Seriously, take a whiff.

The smell that gets me the most, and thank God I don't have to smell it ever again (hopefully), is from when I was deployed to Somalia.  After the "Blackhawk Down" incident, the first hallway of the field hospital I was working at smelled of burning (burned) hair and flesh for weeks.  It was worse than ANY operating room I have ever been in.  I couldn't walk down that hallway, I would leave the "building" through the door in my section and walk around the hospital to get where I needed to go.  It was nasty.  Every once in a while I'll have one of those sensory recall moments and that smell will come back to me for a minute.  BLECK!!!

here's a hint, Eric...when the hubby goes away for a weekend, put some pancake batter in a bottle.  You can take a whiff every now and again...kind of like a new bottle of poppers.  LOL   ;D

Believe it or not, I am aware of the cum smell.  In my highschool years, I was a waiter at a family restaurant and remembered how the batter smelled in the walk-in cooler.  The cum scent doesn't bother me so much  ;)

I've always had a sensitive nose...I'm the one who pops up and says "I smell something burning" and everyone else says "I don't".....then several minutes later, they do....

The neighbors in the apt. below me sometimes make chittlins.  This is the nastiest thing I have smelled; it just permeates everything, and sort of 'hangs there'.

One of my favorite scents is pine-sol.  I use it to clean with, and just love the way the place smells afterwards. (regular scent only! no lemon)

I love the smell of fresh mown grass, but I have a friend who will vomit if he smells it.   To each his own, right?

Alan

edited to add:  another scent I DESPISE is Estee Lauder's "Youth Dew" (a woman's cologne).   It smells like some sort of chemical.....

Alan -

I think we have the same nose or something.  I agree with everything you said. 

I love the smell of Pine-sol too, though it reminds me of a dirty book store or a bathhouse.  Why do all these places use Pine-sol?

I left some meat (steak) out for Annie with the intention of feeding her before we headed off for the weekend...got distracted and forgot to give it to her..when we got home the smell was so awful I gagged for hours and finally threw up, it took two days to get rid of the smell..so rotten meat is the worst smell in the world.

One other odor/smell that Iím bothered with is that stale odor from old people. I have a friend thatís 95 years old and for the past few months well, he just smells funky when I visit him.

I thought about it and figured out what needed doing. (Spoke with him first.) Then we installed safety bars in and around his bathroom and bathtub. Now he smells of Aqua-Velva.  ::) ::) ::)

Oh Jan, spoiled raw chicken meat is another awful odor. Especially if you left some in the kitchen trash and then went away for the weekend.
