There's this guy at work and I think he's gross. He has this condition called acne keloidasis nuchae and it's a bunch or inflamed red lumps on the back of his neck. It's one of those things that you can't stop looking at and just seeing it makes me itchy.
He doesn't seem very hygeniec. He's a fat guy and I've seen him rub food and salts on his belly. His clothes never look washed and he has a sour smell. I don't know if the smell is from him being fat and unable to clean himself properly or from the stuff on his neck that may be filled with pus.
I've only worked with him three times and for some reason he feels comfortable hugging me when greeting me, and poking my sides or touching my arms. He's always hovering over me and being really annoying when I'm with a customer. He keeps on trying to upsell to people and cheat the customer's he doesn't like by charging them for a larger sized drink than they ordered.
I'm going to tell him to stop bothering me and tend to his own customers, I'm going to tell him to stop touching me and respect my space, but I don't know a nice way to tell him to stop hugging me. I don't want to be rude, but I want him to leave me alone.

Tell him in a very blunt way that he should not be trying to screw customers over and that is an infringement. That should crush the relaxed space he feels around you.1

It's one of those situations where it might come off as mean anyway, but you have to be assertive, if you want him to stop. Just ask politely, but you at least you tried not to be mean.1
