I completed the 2 day Field Training Officer school and am now certified. In a few weeks I'll be moving to a new training squad and will soon have my first OIT (Officer In Training). During the school I had the pleasure of sitting next to a mouth breather. You know, the kind of person that keeps a wide open mouth all the time when simple nostril air breathing would suffice.
I found it hard to concentrate on the instructor's lecture as this guy's breathing became louder and smellier. The air surrounding us became damp and and stale. At the end of each yawn, he was sure to bellow out a long and forceful blast of breath (like when you were a kid and tried to 'see' your breath on a cold morning).
Just when I became used to the smell we had our first break. Imagine my delight when my partner returned to his chair with a fresh wad of chewing tobacco in his lip. Now, the smell of rancid chew filled the air. The sounds of loud breathing were replaced by the constant spitting of tobacco juice into a paper cup.
He eventually fell asleep which allowed me to concentrate on the lesson.
