Why are there so many flipping kinds of toothbrushes?? WHY? Why when all you really need is a handle and some bristles?
After hours of deliberation, I finally chose one that looked like it would be good at cleaning between my teeth (like all normal human beings, I hate flossing and am less diligent about flossing as I should be) and went to the checkout. As soon as I got home, I had to try my new toothbrush out.
This, sir, is ridiculous.
Even if you brush for the full amount of time they recommend (about two minutes), is all this ergonomic design and comfort necessary? Were there people getting stress/strain injuries from brushing their teeth? Or is it all just a gimmick to get me to spend £2.50 on a flipping toothbrush? And where are all the straight-handled, no padding, white bristled brushes? Where have they gone?
While I’m ranting about toothbrushes… let me add that possibly the stupidest “improvement” to a toothbrush EVER has to be the blue-coloured bristles that fade away. Once the blue is gone, you know to replace your toothbrush! BAH! Who is so retarded that they can’t see how much their toothbrush is worn down that they need some sort of indicator on the damned thing? Who?? GAAAA!
