What do you say to someone, who said
"I forgot to brush my teeth this morning...?
My daughter twelve year old friend said those words to her this morning, my daughter told me Mommy how do I reply to a question like that without being nasty to her. How does a person forget to brush his or her teeth before leaving the house?
Perhaps it is more polite to ignore such a thing, because not all people are as fortunate to have such amentities provided for them. There are some that may not have toothpaste... etc. This is a great way to teach charity and humility in small children; by showing what others may not have.
Being a dental hygiene student, I might explain to them, nicely, the benefits of not missing a brushing. I really can't help myself.
Really, everyone is telling me that they've never left the house without brushing their teeth? I'm not saying it happens a lot, or even a often but there have been a few mornings in my life when this I have unfortunately ran out of time. But I don't typically share this information with others. If someone mentions it to me, then kindly offer some gum.
I would reply, "Make sure you never forget again." People do forget and it is good to answer in a nicely manner. Maybe he was in a hurry.
Without making a person feel awkward tell a little 'white lie' and say I did that once it happens. It won`t solve the problem but at least they won`t feel so bad about it.
I wouldn't say anything. I would however be thinking "gross".
