Tooth Fairy Versus Easter Bunny

Parents coerce son to do chores with threatening letter from the Tooth Fairy

(Highlights mine)
Dear Elliot,

Thank you for the return of your fourth molar. Here is your payment upon receipts, the agreed-upon sum of $5.00.

By leaving your tooth out for one of our Tooth Adjusters, you, the toothee, have entered into a contractual obligation to perform measured work, herein known as chores.

Please see the attached addendum for an updated list of these chores.

We have been notified by your Parental Units that these obligations have frequently gone uncompleted, and often have to be requested multiple times before they are, in fact, done.

If these obligations are not fully completed, without demand, in the specified time frame (every day after school or camp), we will have no recourse but to repossess all of your remaining teeth, by force if necessary, with no repayment to you.

The most comfortable solution for all three parties involved (Tooth Adjusters, Toothee, and Parental Units) is for you, the toothee, to do your chores as expected, on time, every day.

Do not make us come and take your teeth.

Warm regards,

The Offices of Tooth and Fairy, LLC – Tooth Adjusters

Boy responds (not really, but he should) with threatening letter to mom from Easter Bunny


  1. Nice change of pace for your topic today. Your Aunt Rita used to say, "Clean the house, Santa won't come to a dirty house." Brother Jim retorted, "Yes he will, he comes to Johnson's house every year."

  2. Ha! YES! That's perfect logic. I always wondered as a kid why the Easter Bunny always left toys for Paula and Glen and none for me. I was just down the block, after all. At least the bunny didn't use plyers on my teeth while I slept.
