OP here to explain further, I'm a manager for a big and tall clothing store and hygiene is covered in the training manual. he was wearing the EXACT Same clothing everyday he worked(multiple days in a row). the stains, wrinkles, abd odor constantly increased. I really don't feel like I was bullying him and I even offered to help purchase him new clothes. he took offense to that as well and went on a rant about how his family is ridiculously wealthy. his work ethic was atrocious, he stopped every

This is really hard as I can see both sides. I've been the victim of a bullying boss, and it was a horrible experience. On the other hand, employees are expected to act and dress appropriately.

By the tone of your story, with the sarcastic quotation marks and all, I'll bet you treated this worker obnoxiously and rudely. Being a little diplomatic can get good results without the hostility. Try it, jerk-off!
so let me try and understand this... you are calling me a jerk off at the same time you are telling me to be diplomatic? mmmmm love me some situational irony. be tee dubs, those aren't sarcastic quotations. just the normal kind. you know, the ones people use to let other people know it's a quote.
I worked with a guy who smelled of B.O. in a supermarket! You're doing the right thing. Not sure what line of work you're in but It could put customers off if employees aren't presenting themselves appropriately.
I'm amazed at how many people don't mind being "dirty." I literally don't see how someone wouldn't WANT to bath and smell clean on a day to day basis. Like, how do you not smell yourself? It's one the to to get dirty from working or doing activities but to just intentionally not bath and put others through the torture of smelling your stank ass is just cruel and unusual punishment.
"How do you not smell yourself?" This one is actually easy to answer because the average animal can't smell themselves unless they are actively trying. Your brain pushes that information into the background because in a survival situation it is useless. How could you smell predators approaching or notice that strange gasoline smell if your brain was busy taking in the powder smell of your deodorant? This also explains why some people basically bathe in their perfume bottle. It only takes a few minutes before your brain concludes that you smelling that Channel no. 5 you put on is pointless and pushes the information back. People think that because they can't smell it anymore no one else can and put on more. It takes a lot before your brain thinks your own smell is relevant enough to bring the information on how you smell to the front. I agree people are ridiculous when they deliberately stay dirty but it is asking a bit much for people to just know they smell bad.
