Poor Chase.

This was my brand new toorthbrush, given to me, special by the dentist because I brush my gums toohard. It has softer bristles than you can buy in the sotre. Thanks a lot "whoever!" Enjoy the toothbrush! I told you writing my name wouldn't change anything!

    When it says, brush my… It really makes one first wonder, just what the hell is this person going to brush?

    Look under the toothbrush… it continues to say “my gums”

    That is so freaking gross… using a roommate’s toothbrush.

      Well, right, I read that, but because of the disjointed writing, it briefly makes you wonder where the person’s brushing – at first glance.

      Of course, the gums are gross enough.

    Of course, this person might not have as many problems if he would stop brushing his gums so hard. Maybe switch to a toothbrush instead of brushing your teeth with a shingle. Are you really telling me that you can’t find soft-bristle toothbrushes in a store without your dentist giving it to you “special?”

      They have us buy ones we can find at our local pharmacy at 3 times the price :(

      I would feel slightly happier to be given one for free. :D

      Nina means the dentist makes her buy one from his office that is three times the price of the ones at her local grocery.

    Since this guy’s gums are “deep purple” . . . to the tune of “Hush” . . .

    I got tender little gums, I brush too rough
    No doubt about it, they’re red and puffed
    It’s the best brush my dentist gave,
    I wrote “Chase” but I couldn’t save,
    Yeah, “Chase” couldn’t save.

    Bristles soft like a baby’s bum
    Only tickle when touching my gum
    You grabbed my brush to scrub the sink,
    I can’t stand it, yeah,
    “Whoever,” you stink.

    Na na na . . .

    Brush, brush,
    My dentist gave it special to me, now
    Brush, brush
    You took my Oral B
    so my gums hurt terribly now
    Brush, brush
    Softer bristles than you can buy now,
    Brush, brush, I wrote my name
    But I’ll have to brush and cry now

    Brush, brush
    I miss it early in the morning,
    Brush, brush,
    Late in the evening . . .

      Now this is a good idea. I would scrub the grout or the toilet first, leave the toothbrush out for “whoever” to use, then leave a PAN after “whoever” has already used it. Less of the angry PAN, more of the “serves you right” PAN.

    You can too get that at the store. That’s the exact same toothbrush I use. It came right off the shelf at CVS. It was the only one I could find with extra soft bristles … well, at that particular store, on that particular day.

    Not saying that makes the roommate using it ok, just saying it makes the dentist’s claim of its specialness a little suspicious :)

    I can’t help but think of the dread and dismay the people in the dentist’s office feel when they realize that today is Chase’s Appointment Day. I imagine Velma, the wily long-time dental assistant carefully scheduling her colonoscopy for Chase’s Appointment Day, leaving the less-wary receptionist, Linda, to fill in for her that day. Doctor Colgate arrives in the morning, and gives a glance at the day’s patient list and immediately retreats to the exam room for a whiff of the happy gas. Shari The Hygenist wonders if she can get her husband, who is on the fire department, to arrive in his truck and evacuate the building due to a dangerous chemical spill in the area.

    The clock ticks inexorably away as 11:35 (Zero Hour) approaches, and in comes Chase. He shows his bleeding gums to Linda. He shows his gums to the patients in the waiting room, he complains to Shari that she’s poking his gums too hard and whines for 45 minutes at Dr. Colgate about the hint of pink in his sink. Finally, they are nearly rid of him. As he stops at the desk to make his next appointment in six month’s time, Linda has a brainstorm! She disappears for a moment and returns bearing the Oral B Advantage® Artica™ (Soft Bristle, Size 40, blue), saying in a very earnest tone, “Dr. Colgate would like you to have this special brush. You can’t get it in stores. It will help you with your gums.”

    As Chase leaves the building, cradling his glorious toothbrush, Dr. Colgate, Shari and Linda watch him go, safe in the knowledge that they will not see him again for six whole months. On her lunch break, Linda plans a trip to Costa Rica in six months time, and purchases non-refundable airplane tickets. Screw Velma. She can deal with the little whiner next time.

      As long as we’re doing Toothbrush Confessions, I once had a live-in girlfriend with serious toothbrush-exclusivity issues . . . so I used to wet her toothbrush every morning, just to make her think I’d used it.

      I think if you are faced with a toothbrush with cloggy brown bits all over it from under the rim of the bowl, it’s definitely going to turn step-dad’s stomach more than one YIT’s friend may have lightly rinsed after the act, that step-dad unknowingly uses. In a way, it’s an honest bit of aggression!

      Then again, it happened more than once? Maybe that was a very clean bowl.

    It seems that this is not the first time his brush has been violated, per the “wouldn’t change ANYTHING” statement.

    If I were Cha e, I would buy a brand new toothbrush (from the dollar store), write my name on it, then use it to clean my dog’s teeth, and leave it on the sink. If the toothbrush violator struck, I would then be sure to alert him as to what he had put in his mouth.

    But that’s just me. I have a few passive-aggressive issues…

    But wait…this is NOT A PAN JOKE…I saw a commercial IRL for a toothbrush that beeps after two minutes to let you know when you have brushed long enough!
    I couldn’t help but wonder who needs such a thing and what they would do if the battery died after 1.5 minutes of brushing.

    I saw some TV special once where they sprayed a chemical on things in the bathroom to see how germy they were, and they used some kind of special photography to see how far the teeny, tiny drops of water spray into the air when you flush the toilet. The guy said, “If you store your toothbrush within six feet of the toilet, you might as well be brushing with water from the bowl.” Ever since then I’ve kept my toothbrush in my bedroom.

      Is that the same TV program that showed bottoms of women’s handbags, and handles of supermarket shopping carts, are more germy than toilet seats?

      Closing the lid of the bowl will at least reduce the amount of microbial flush-mist . . . and are you sure your bedroom is sanitarily superior?

    It’s Team Chase on this one.

    Using someone else’s previously used toothbrush is like wearing someone else’s previously worn underwear. Who cares how often it’s been disinfected/laundered, these are personal items.

    What I’d like to know is how Chase figured out someone brushed their teeth with it as opposed to just wetting it to screw with him.

    • #41.1   Juliet bang

      You know, due to his “I told you writing my name wouldn’t change anything.” Apparently there was something to cause Chase to write his name on the toothbrush. Maybe this is what happened to the previous toothbrush, hence the name on it (which is also passive aggressive.) Sounds like roommate shenanigans to me.

      Maybe I’m not so much Team Chase… I need more info!

    Seriously – the FIRST rule of living with anyone other than immediate family is: Never leave your toothbrush out where your roommates can access it. Especially if you have a tendancey to piss them off. It probably wasn’t even used on teeth…shudder.

      “Yeah, dude.”
      “So what do you think I should do?”

      “What if they don’t see it?”

    When a room mate started using my toothbrush, I got another one and continued to let them use it until they got themselves a new one, which I then dipped into the toilet water because they don’t know how to use their own toilet brush either.

    Before anyone says anything, there are more bad germs inside another person’s mouth than there are inside a freshly toilet-ducked toilet.
    I shall let them know about this shortly after I move out.

    To save on water, detergent, and effort, my husband and I use bath/shower towels a few times before putting them in the laundry. When we had a (now former) friend staying with us for five months a few years back, she used to use my towel. You know, the one I wiped my private parts with. She could never figure out what my objection was, and thought I was just a neat-freak or a germ-phobe. Tell me…which one of us was the normal one?

    Another time, I went to get a new cartridge for my refillable razor, and found HER hairs in it! She’d taken it out of the pack, used it, and then put it back IN the pack, hoping I wouldn’t notice.

    I wouldn’t put it past her to use someone else’s toothbrush…and it’s really weirding me out now, since it hadn’t occurred to me before. *shudder*
