London: A 61-year-old British woman called police after she felt insulted when a waitress at a cafe told her she had body odour.
June Morris said it was a "verbal assault" when the waitress at a cafe in Blackwood, South Wales called her smelly, the Daily Mail reported.
"I couldn't believe it. I don't smell. I was always taught by my mum and dad to keep myself clean," Morris said.
She said she was informed that the waitress made the derogatory comment as she walked past.
When the waitress returned, Morris confronted her.
"She repeated that I smelled. I couldn't believe it! I went up to the manager to complain but he said she was only joking and just laughed it off. But I didn't find it very funny at all when it was in a cafe full of people. I took great offence - and I decided to report it to police immediately," she said.
The cafe owner apologised, saying it was "friendly banter" and that the affair was a complete misunderstanding.
