Body Hair

  1. Curious to know if any of you work with men who have excessive chest hair and it sticks out of their scrubs...

    I do and I just cringe! This guy could make a carpet out of his chest I think. Is it wrong for me to think that he should wear a t-shirt underneath his scrubs to cover that up? I'm not the only person at work who feels this way.

    Any input is appreciated...

    So true Grace!! I wish the only irritations in my life were checking out others body hair! Hell, at least it was a man with a hairy chest and not a woman!!!!! P.S. Never work at a veterinarians office- Every single critter (except goldfish) has a hairy chest!!!!!!

    hairy chest doesn't bother me at all, hairy hands gross me out.

    Hairy backs. Yuck. I have a hairy chest and it shows in my scrubs, but it's neat and trimmed, but I can't stand wearing t-shirts. To confining and too hot. Sorry if I offend.

    I have no problem with men and chest hair or hairy hands either. At work we don't see a mans back, but if it's hairy too, oh well...no big deal.

    As long as the male nurses are clean and small good, than a hairy chest (or back) doesn't bother me. It's when you see all that hair on their chest, and they have a funky body oder, thats when I can't stand it. You would think nurses wouldn't smell, but belive me, I've worked around some nurses, (males and females)
    who smelled to high heaven!!!

    Are you allowed to wear a t-shirt underneath?

    I have the chest hair and that would be a concern of mine...

    Have to agree with ya on the back hair thing! Hubby is starting to grow hair on his back....I am getting him a gift certificate for a waxing!!:chuckle

    I don't mind a hairy chest or even a little back hair, but when the hair is excessive that gives me the skeevies. I saw a guy once that had a big tuft of hair that stuck up beyond his shirt collar in the back. That was gross.
