Everyone deals with disappointment in their own special way. Some people get really angry and break things. Others clam up, get especially quiet and bottle up their rage. A third group finds the happy medium: They get very angry, but they express their outrage in a very passive-aggressive way.
Recently, a woman’s father gave her the letter she wrote to the tooth fairy when she was 9 years old. You can almost feel the fury as you read it to yourself.
Full story. So, I had lost a tooth, but I was suspicious about the actual validity of the toothfairy's magical abilities. So, I didn't tell anyone about the lost tooth. Lo and behold, she did not arrive.
The next morning, I loudly proclaimed the toothfairy bulls**t in my 9 year old terms, and my mom told me to write her a letter expressing my displeasure.
She actually signed it with the word "unsincerely." Amazing.
So, what happened? Well...
I was returned a letter that basically said,
"I couldn't get to your pillow the night before last because I got stuck in all the mess. Maybe if you clean your room, I could get to you in a timely manner."
Well played, tooth fairy. Well played.
