There have been plenty of times that I have found myself running late and I’ve had to rush to brush my teeth and get ready. But I have never found myself so late that I decided that running with a toothbrush in my mouth was a good idea. And now someone on Reddit has shown why it will never be a bright idea.
On the very popular subreddit “Today I F*cked Up,” one anonymous dude decided to tell his horror story. Have a read below.
“I woke up this morning and started brushing my teeth just like any other morning. I realized I was running a bit late and that it was dumping snow (I live in Northern Idaho), so I ran outside to start my car with my toothbrush still in my mouth.”
“It was freezing outside and I was not properly dressed so I ran back to my house. Right when I was approaching, I stumbled slightly on the bottom stair and hit the toothbrush on my door, jamming it into the back of my mouth.”
“It hurt a little bit but I didn’t think anything of it and continued brushing my teeth. When I went to spit and rinse, there was more blood than toothpaste. I opened up, said ‘ahhhhh,’ and looked in my mouth to find that the toothbrush had poked a hold in the back of my throat. Stitches in the back of your throat are not pleasant.”
And now the evidence. Take a look at this graphic photo, folks, and enjoy.
Well that’s disgusting. Hey, we warned you.
