I remember working at the library, where we had a lot of people who were homeless (and thus couldn't wash regularly) or people who just didn't have good hygiene. One patron in particular had a home, but smelled *so* bad. It was difficult not to gag when he got close to you, it was that bad (to the modern nose... he might have been perfectly within social norms of other places/times). And yet... making a face, scooting away, all of those things, just seem really really rude to me. We would never have done such a thing. We sat next to him as close as was reasonable while helping him with the computer or to find a book, etc. So I see moving away due to a smell as being really obvious and somewhat rude. Because of that, I'd *like* to give her the benefit of the doubt that maybe she was moving away just to have some space or to give you more room to see the screen, and she felt really uncomfortable and didn't know how to respond when you brought up the smell (which she may have noticed but been ignoring, or may not have noticed until you brought it up). Her response was really off, but maybe it was a foot in mouth moment for her.
