Take care of your teeth and they will take care of you!


Dental Care
Jane Anne Dapper had spent years and years to reach an executive level at Smith and Kline, LLC, producers of Prime Mouthwash and other fine products.  Jane remembered what her father had told her frequently, "Always brush your teeth and never question authority." Those years of his advice were finally paying off. She had arrived.

Jane Anne's position was one of quality control, where she had to determine if the undrinkable mouthwash was acceptable.  To do this, Jane Anne was required to gargle copious amounts of this product to determine if it met optimum standards.  The 25% alcohol content was a negligible consequence.
At the end of Jane Anne's first week, she collapsed, dead before she hit the floor. Mouth wash covered her.

Coroners determined Jane Anne died from alcohol poisoning.  CEO Mark Smith swore, shouting to Fred Kline, "This is the 3rd one this year!"

Kline suggested second woman in line to take over Jane Anne's job. Smith agreed and called personnel to send up Fannie Schimmel.

  2. a mystery! I like it. I never use straight mouthwash, it stings too much so I dilute it a lot. Like the rinse water at the dentist, it's mostly water with a colouring of mouthwash. But it still does the job.
    I remember a poster at my dentist years ago "Teeth. Ignore them and they'll go away."

  3. Ack. Dentistry scares me. The products and the process are all expensive and often nasty. And this nasty little (but very skilled) story encapsulates it well.

    1. The ingredients of so many different of the shelf stuff (like mouthwash) are downright scary.

  4. Ah. Corporate America. Where there would be someone willing to take that job. Even knowing what happened to the last couple of occupants.

    1. The alcohol burns, can't stand the chemicals. So I spray mouthwash sparingly, rinse, and Bob's your uncle.
