Possibly the best Tooth Fairy letters of all time

July 10th, 2011 · 117 comments

Writes Carolyn in Brooklyn: “My youngest daughter, Annisa, clearly had a problem with her recalcitrant tooth fairy. This is a series of letters, including an envelope, that I saved from her early years. I have no doubt that her finely tuned negotiating skills were developed as a result.” The best part? Annisa, who just turned 31 on Saturday, is now — no joke — a Director of Human Resources.”

(I really didn’t think this tooth-fairy letter could be topped, but in terms of sheer precociousness — not to mention determination — I think we have a new winner.)

Dear tooth fairy, I lost my tooth on 23 of Oct. Now it is Nov. 12. I lost my tooth in pizza. I lost both today. You owe me $1.00 not to be hard but I need money. Annisa

Dear tooth fairy, I did not get my 1.00. I told you I lost my tooth in pizza. I hope you're prepared that I am going to take it up with your mother. And I have a penalty for whatever night you miss you owe me a 25 cents more. And maybe I'll take it up with your boss. And I'll tell him you're goofind off. And I love to talk to you in person over Juice and tea. So when you write back give me your phone number and address talk over cookies. Annisa  p.s. don't correct my spelling

Dear Toothfairy,  I want two dollars for my tooth because It's my first fang. Annisa  P.S. If you don't give me what I want I will find another tooth fairy.   Dear Toothfairy, It is the next day, and I don't have my money. I will have to charge you 25 cents more for penalty and I want $2.25 tomorrow morning. Annisa

    I think the bossy little “don’t correct my spelling” bit at the end of the second note is the best part.

    Wow. I can just see her threatening the hourlies:

    “It is now July 10th. The strike has gone on 2 weeks longer than I said it could. The next day you are on strike you will lose your dental plan. Don’t mean to be hard, but I need my executive bonus this quarter.”

      If I had written these as a young child, the Tooth Fairy would have stopped existing for me immediately and I wouldn’t have had another reward for pretty much any milestone or achievement for as long as it took it to sink in with me that it’s not okay to be disrespectful, especially to adults.

      If this is real, which I strongly doubt (what with the variety of handwriting and all), then it’s not the kid’s fault, it’s the fault of adults who think an attitude like this is adorable. When they’re six it may seem sweet, just like a puppy who nips and chews and jumps on you.

      And just like when that puppy is a full-grown St. Bernard, a 25-year-old with this same attitude isn’t very cute at all.

      I’m sorry, but this is highly self-entitled, bossy, and disrespectful and I’m honestly glad I was never allowed to speak to adults this way.

      We really have no idea how the parents responded to these notes, only that they were written and kept for posterity.

      Just because her parents saved the notes articulating her demands does not mean they caved to the demands and patted her on the head for being such a demanding little princess. Sheesh.

    Stamp says 1980. If she turned 31 she was born in 1980. Earliest I’ve heard of a kid losing a tooth is age 5.

    What I’m getting at is… Who holds on to stamps for 5 years???

      My mom had a whole collection of obsolete stamps that were probably five years old or more. I think the idea was that she’d use them when she just needed a few more cents to send something, I don’t know. It’s not hard to imagine Carolyn giving her daughter old stamps to send some nonsense tooth fairy letter.

      I have stamps in my drawer from 1982. Heck, I have a bunch of stamps from UK from 1979. I can’t ever use them, they aren’t worth any more than their stamped value, so I guess I should just throw them out, but, they’re stamps and one day I may need them, and they’re so tiny and take up almost no space, so I keep them.

      ps – I want that cool Grenada snow white stamp!!

      Basically stamps from Grenada are novelty stamps. They aren’t actually useful. People buy them because they have Disney characters or Lord of the Rings characters (or whatever the latest thing is) on them. So they hang around forever.

      Some kids are meaner than others. Just because a person is young doesn’t mean that they’re exempt from being a jerk. (Three letters of complaint for the same thing? Come on.)

      If they’re old enough to read and write – as this kid obviously is – they’re old enough to know how to behave with strangers.

      I can’t speak for the other people, but I haven’t met anyone in HR who isn’t a jerk and/or blowhard. That doesn’t mean that all people in HR are jerks; just the ones I have had the misfortune to know.

      Kids can be jerks. It happens. I’ve met and taught thousands of them. Most kids can’t help if they’re obnoxious; they learn it from their parents.
      About 1% are just born nasty – no way around it.
      By the way – all the HR directors I knew were always in the position not because they were smart or good at their job, but because they kissed the best butt. Hopefully Annisa is nicer to her employees than she was to the tooth fairy now that she’s grown up. :)

      “Not sure I agree with the “born nasty” part. Born with strong, aggressive personalities, yes. But “born nasty”? That’s harsh, when we’re talking about a kid.

      It’s amazing to me how many people in this thread are talking about what a “bitch” this girl is. I was an obnoxious kid, and letters like these would not have seemed out of place in my childhood, but guess what — I grew up, learned how to behave acceptably and treat others with kindness, etc. I don’t know this kid or the person she grew up to be, but my assumption is that she has a bossy, often aggressive, stubborn, determined personality that reared its head obnoxiously when she was a kid because she hadn’t learned at that stage how to control herself. She was what, between 5 and 10 years old? That seems normal to me.

      And you know what, with kids like that, the parents can be as good of an example as possible, they can sit down and talk to the kid about what is acceptable, they can punish the kid til kingdom come, but if that kid decides to be obnoxious, she will do it despite the consequences and her parents won’t be the reason why.

      I grew up in a disciplined household where there were consequences for my actions and where my parents expected me to show respect to them and others, but there were often times when I broke the rules, took the punishment and then broke ‘em again. My poor mother had an awful time of it, and of course not only did she have to deal with me, she also had to deal with assholes saying that she was a bad mother because I wouldn’t behave myself! People are so judgmental.

      I’d think that if she’s old enough to use some of those words properly, she’s old enough to know there’s not only no required tooth payment amount, but no tooth fairy.
      By that age Santa Claus has surly sent an elf or two by her home to tell her that only he and the Easter Bunny are real.

      If they’re “born nasty” then how does where you teach have anything to do with it? Wouldn’t being born nasty imply that their rearing had nothing to do with it? If so, then the demograph is irrelevant.

    Jorge Barnes, it’s a 5 cent stamp. We’d get 1 and 5 cent stamps as “change” from stamp vending machines, as I recall. We never had any use for them, but throwing them out was like throwing out money, so they knocked around in the bottom of desk drawers for years on end. My parents probably still have some in the back of a drawer somewhere.

    That’s probably why her parents let her stick it on a letter to the Tooth Fairy, too. They wouldn’t have let her waste a real stamp.

    (BTW, first class postage in 1985 was 22 cents. By ’88 it was 25 cents. So the 5 cent stamp is purely for show.)

    Furthermore — Google informs me that the reason it says GRENADA on it? Is because it’s a stamp from Grenada — this one is a 1980 Christmas stamp with Snow White on it. God knows where they got a hold of a Grenada stamp in the first place.

      I get it! Now please, stop piling on me *sniff*

      For the record, I buy maybe 5 or 6 stamps a year for the 5 or 6 idiotic places I do business that won’t accept online payments. I am usually franctically searching for a stamp at the last minute. So having a 5-year backlog is foreign to me. (get it?? Grenada? Foreign!)

      And no one here is bullying a child. Please, just don’t. People here are questioning what the heck happened and why A. a little kid wrote these notes and B. why her attitude wasn’t corrected.

      You know what happens when a behavior (good or bad) is treated with approval? Well, what do you do when someone is approving of something you do? Oh, you repeat the behavior? Exactly.

      It’s pretty obvious that she gets it from mom (mum) who is that annoying caller you get at your job who won’t take what you have to say as an answer, but will accept the same answer when she hears it from your supervisor.
      As to interest penalties, she’s probably gotten that from her dad the loan shark, as it seems she’s on the verge of dusting that fairy.

    @ 24, 24.1 I was a kid in the 80s/early 90s and I still got only 25 cents for a tooth. With the exception of the two that were extracted; the parents ponied up a buck a piece for those suckers.

    Whoa, there’s a lot of harsh comments on this. Did no one but me notice that the first note indicated the “tooth fairy” had yet to show up three weeks after the girl lost her tooth? That’s a really long time when your a kid to wait and keep putting a tooth under your pillow. I can remember hoping out loud, in front of my parents, that the tooth fairy would give me extra money for having taken so long, and I promise I’m not a selfish jerk.

    The boss thing however has to be modeled after mom.

      I’m not sure it has to be modeled after mom. Some kids watch a lot of TV and it could be easy to pick up that line/attitude from some show or other.

    My tooth fairy was a cheapskate by today’s standards. My teeth fell out in the late ’70s, early ’80s and I remember looking forward to that quarter under my pillow. I may have gotten 50 cents for a molar, but it was never an entire dollar. ‘Course, this tooth fairy was also in the same union as my Dad, who had a habit of charging me and my sister 10 cents for every half hour we left a light on in a room that we weren’t inhabiting…

    This kid’s mom needs to get her act together. It really, really sucks for a kid to put a tooth under their pillow and see that same tooth still there in the morning. For a kid waiting on something, overnight is an eternity. Having to wait three weeks had to be torture.

    Hey mom, just do what you’re supposed to with a little kid and just put some money under her pillow. I just picture this kid waking up with hopes dashed after looking under her pillow for weeks breaks my shrivelled childfree heart.

    When you have a kid, you have to do stupid stuff like put money under the pillow for the Toothfairy. It comes with being a parent. I think the mom is the passive aggressive one in this story. Team Kid all the way.

    I think mom was having fun too. It obviously looks like she replied to her letters as a tooth fairy sans payment. Something of increasing fury and interest rate and mention of sit down tells me not only that the other adult was involved in this war fare for extracting (heh) payment from tooth fairy but mom/toothfairy’s replies were molded (heh) to fuel this fire.

      If this kid really has fangs it’s a wise tooth fairy who decides not to pay her a visit after dark.

    Suggesting that kids write a note to air their grievances is a time-honored parenting method.
    I love this kid. I wish she was mine. Mine just keep complaining instead of doing something about it.

    My guess is it went something like this:

    Mom/Dad: I don’t know why the tooth fairy hasn’t left you anything for that tooth. Why don’t you write a note and leave it under your pillow?

    Annisa: That’s a great idea! I’ll run up to my room and get right on it.

    Mom/Dad: Holy Crap. She’s really going to do it.
    Quick, see if there’s any change in the couch!

    I don’t personally find the bratty kid notes cute either, but whatever.

    I’m wondering why her parents kept stringing her along like this though, was it for their own personal amusement? Just give the kid the tooth money already. Teasing kids to the point of frustration isn’t funny, it’s mean.

    On a more serious note (lawl), the second one is totally fake, but I believe the first and third/fourth. It’s obviously written by a different person (probably the mom like a week ago). The handwriting is sooooo painfully obviously not the same.

Oh, and she isn’t a bitch or a jerk, either. She’s just a little kid I sure as h*ll wouldn’t want to babysit, or even to know. Just sayin’.

      I assume Annisa is a perfectly normal and lovely person as is her mother, who managed to not only raise a contributing member of society, but save some of her childhood letters along the way. Go mom!

      Mystified – Have you never, ever, in your life encountered a jerk? Not once? Someone with major self-entitlement problems? Someone who thinks they deserve more than they’ve gotten for no other reason than they exist?

      I’ve met those people, and because I live on Earth, I know those attitudes didn’t randomly spring from their psyches in their twenties.

      I do agree with you on one point, Mystified. This thread has me, too, worried for the future of humanity. What the frak is wrong? Hold up a mirror.

    If you want to add a little magic to the Tooth Fairy experience I highly recommend this website http://www.mytoothfairypictures.com. I used it with each of my children and they were overjoyed to find a picture of themselves with the Tooth Fairy the morning after they had lost a tooth. I had a great time making these photos, and an even better time watching the smiles on my kids’ faces when they discovered them.

    Wow, people, c’mon, it’s a little kid. They are like this, whether their parents are trying to knock some sense into them or not. It’s funny, and most of them grow out of it. My cousins, all raised by different types of parents, and kids of friends, can all be like this. Even the smart, well raised ones.

    It isn’t like she is having a fit in a grocery store because she can’t have a candy bar, or saying this to some adult and being disrespectful. She is writing a note to some imaginary person, asking “Hey, where is my money?” After all, don’t we tell children they will get money from the tooth fairy?

    Plus, some parents forget, haha. Or they don’t have the money at the moment. I pulled all my teeth out, one after the other, and my mom just gave up. Perhaps they thought it was funny! A six year old doesn’t exactly *need* money, and some parents like to play games like this, right or not.

    I found these hilarious, and could imagine a frustrated little girl looking under her pillow and finding her tooth yet again, and writing these.

    And I love how Annissa is going to speak with the higher ups of mom & boss before going to another Tooth Fairy. She really wants to give this Tooth Fairy an opportunity to course correct.
