Parents Can't Stop Laughing Over This Hilariously Formal Tooth Fairy Letter

"One is never too young to be exposed to petty bureaucracy."

This is Henry Warren and his 8-year-old son, Sam.

After recently losing a tooth, Sam — who is "dreadful at brushing his teeth" — got an unexpected letter from the tooth fairy on Tuesday.

Our son is dreadful at brushing his teeth. Turns out the Tooth Fairy has had enough

It reads:

Dear Mr. Warren,

This letter is to inform you that I have now taken receipt of your tooth and it is being duly processed in our system.

You will have noticed there has been a delay in your payment for the tooth. Mr. Warren, I have to inform you that this is due to the condition in which we found said tooth. We expect a certain amount of wear and tear on the teeth we appraise. However in this case your tooth had to be referred up to the committee for further analysis.

We believe this is due to the lack of care and attention by yourself. 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.

Mr. Warren we will accept the tooth on this occasion but we need your assurances that the condition of your next tooth will be significantly better or we will withhold payment.

Sincerely yours,
Barry T. Tooth Fairy

People think the letter is "genius."

Ok, this might be a stroke of genius.

This parenting is on a level of it's own

This is the best thing I've read today 😂

And many parents are saying their kids might get a letter from Barry T. Tooth Fairy for future lost teeth.

Brilliant. I'm stealing this idea for use with our 7 year old.

my kids got a similar letter from santa's elves several years ago.

I suspect this letter will be getting distributed to many other kids. Fantastic.

Henry said Sam was "rather chastened" by the letter, but that "one is never too young to be exposed to petty bureaucracy."
