Bad Breath

I told a friend that he has bad breath. I said it was bad enough that he should see a doctor or a dentist about it.

He reacted as expected. He told me my logic was flawed.

Actually, he told me my logic astounded him. It was irrational for me to expect minty fresh 12+ hours since teeth brushing. Further, I should keep my irrational medical advice to myself unless I had a medical degree he didn't know about.

I suggested he see someone and if he was told it was nothing out of the ordinary he could decide if I was a misinformed but well-meaning asshole. Or a malicious asshole.
It went pretty well, I think.
