I had a best friend once, and at lunch we would get slushies. I always got blue he always got red, my teeth stayed white his teeth stained pink, like little fuzzy pink slippers around his teeth. It was gross how much plaque he had caked up on his gum line and between his teeth. And one day I found some courage to tell him, and he said he already knew, and didn't like brushing or flossing.
You are a good friend. I can't help but stare just for a second when I notice someone has layers of... stuff... on their teeth.
Wow. They jsut didn't like flossing or brushing? LOL. Yikes. Well, at least they won't be getting fluoride poisioning for a good while. Ha Ha Ha. Hey, I don't like brushing either. It sucks. It's messy and it burns and I hate standing there for 4 minutes everday, but I can't stand the feeling in my mouth when I get up. I HATE it. It just feels dirty. It's like a weird cool feeling. I don't know how to explain it, but it bothers me so much that there's only 2 things I can do before heading straight to my trusty ol' toothbrush, baking soda & OraMD, and that is pee (which a lot of times, peeing even has to wait! or smoke.) Hey, why not get the smoke done before brushing?
Even if I did not care about the icky mouth feeling myself, that comes from not brushing, I think I'd at least wanna spare the poor fella who has to be close to me. LOL.
I'm bad though. I don't say anything! I know, it's horrible, but I soooo don't want to hurt feelings. So I just stay quiet. However, sometimes I'll be sneaky and bring up the problem (like, if it's their teeth with "fuzzy pink slippers" LOL) I'll just say something about it like "gosh, I hope I don't have crap on my teeth. That bugs the heck out of me. Do I have crap on my teeth?" And sometimes, sometimes
it's like a super subtle way of bringing it to their attention without going there. Lol.
Now there was this girl in school with me. Oh dear Lord! Even to this day, people (such as myself) STILL remember! Hate to be rude, but the smell would literally take your breath away! We felt bad for her, being her friends, so we would all try to offer her gum and any kind of mint, but it did not work!
So we figured she must seriously have a condition... halitosis? I mean I've never smelled breath that strong in my life. It honestly smelled like death. Almost like something was dead inside her throat. I definitely think she knew about it. She HAD to have known, plus, some of our friends did mention it to her. Also, people would cover their nose while talking to her, but she really never showed any signs of caring. She wouldn't try to hold back, she would breath in your face. So we finally just said what the hell, and quit trying. If she is okay with it, we shouldn't press it & so we just carried out the next several years keeping a slight distance or holding our breath.
