A guy shared a story of how he shared the same tooth brush with a roommate for quite a long period of time and the both of them only discovered it after a few months of using the same brush.
He had initially bought two pairs of toothbrushes, one for his room mate and another for himself and the only difference between the toothbrushes is the colour of the bristles.
His room mate was supposed to take the white one and he will take the green one.
Here is the story
“I came to Singapore to work and have been sharing a room with one my my colleague who also came to Singapore for work.
We have been here for almost five years and have became quite good friends outside of work.
About 2-3 months ago, I bought a pair of toothbrushes for my roommate and myself. They both were identical except that the bristles were differently colored- white and green. I assigned him the white one and I picked the green one for me and he agreed.
Somehow he mistook it as green for him.
And… you know what happened… we have both been using the green one for 3 months now. He usually wakes up an hour before me so he is done with brushing and bathing before I even wake up. And the toothbrush also dries in the time so nothing ever seemed to be off.
Today I noticed that my bristles were a lot more worn off than his. I jokingly asked him if he even brushes his teeth. He was confused and told that his has was pretty old and he needed to replace it. We were both confused and then… the realisation hit.
We have emptied a full bottle of listerine now and he vomited a lot. Well played by both of us. I am never buying toothbrush in offers again.”
