When I was younger, brushing my teeth was the worst chore. Then I learned it’s not a chore at all…but I bet you had similar feeling growing up!
I definitely recall getting a little change for my lost chiclets from the Tooth Fairy…
but I don’t remember getting notes like this! A young man in the UK named Sam is “dreadful at brushing his teeth”, according to a tweet from his Dad.
So after his son lost another of his teef, you can bet Henry was happy to see this letter addressed to Sam from “Barry T. Tooth Fairy”!
Apparently Dad wasn’t the only one that noticed the poor dental hygiene…
“Dear Mr Warren,
This letter is to inform you that I have now taken receipt of your tooth and it is being duly processed in our system.
You will have noticed there has been a delay in your payment for the tooth. Mr Warren, I have to inform you that this is due to the condition in which we found said tooth. We expect a certain amount of wear and tear on the teeth we appraise. However in this case your tooth had to be referred up to the committee for further analysis.
We believe this is due to the lack of care and attention by yourself. We have detected more than trace amounts of Fanta and residual amounts of both cereal and chocolate which have not been removed by appropriate brushing technique. We recommend you review your practice here as a matter of urgency.
Mr Warren we will accept the tooth on this occasion but we need your assurances that the condition of your next tooth will be significantly better or we will withhold payment.
Barry T. Tooth Fairy”
Wait a minute, this can’t be real…
I always assumed the Tooth Fairy was a Woman!
I do have to say, Barry’s standard seems to be a lot higher than the Fairy that hit my house back in the day.
Other parents are LOVING it!
Barry is such a stickler for process. At least he is polite.— Dominic Atkinson (@domatkinson76) September 5, 2017
Absolutely genius! My strategy was to help them look for all their chocolate that I accidentally ate last night. May add this my repertoire— Victoria Guthrie (@Runningmummypig) September 6, 2017
Clever parenting and I bet there is a marked difference in his brushing of said peggies!! Well done and good luck! 😁— Struan (@stru79) September 7, 2017
My children received tiny letters from the fairies explaining what their teeth were used for - rocking chairs, cradles, musical instruments— Fiona J (@LucidWhim) September 7, 2017
