Why It Sucks This sends the subtle message that you may need to bathe more. And if you’re forced to use it, you’ll scare your friends away.

Someone thinks your packing too much junk in your trunk. Generally speaking, they don’t know you at all. A quick stop at Safeway on the way over satisfied their gift-giving needs.
