Testy letter from the tooth fairy is truly one for the ages
The tooth fairy has quality standards, and they do not include bits of cereal.
Barry T. Tooth Fairy, a London-area tooth fairy who usually retrieves the teeth of a young Mr. Sam Warren, was forced to leave a tough but fair note alongside Sam’s monetary reward earlier this week.
Why? Sam’s lost tooth had a bit too much “wear and tear.”
“…in this case,” Barry wrote, “your tooth had to be referred up the committee for further analysis … 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,” he added. And it is truly urgent: if young Mr. Warren does not remedy his dental hygiene practices, Barry will withhold future payment.
Sam’s father, Henry Warren, obtained the letter in full, which he shared on Twitter Tuesday. “Turns out the tooth fairy has had enough,” he wrote.
“Sam was rather chastened by the letter, as was his 5 year old sister Lexie whom he read it to,” Mr. Warren said via Twitter DM. “One is never too young to be made aware of petty bureaucracy.”
Unfortunately, Barry was not available for comment.
