Editor’s Note: The original question was – “I’m worried that my dentist is a loser. Every time I go to see him (which is often, for I am a prospector, and my teeth are as rotten as the day is long) he always seems so lonely. None of the other dentists seem to hang out with him, or to playfully rib him – you know, the way dentists do, with that famous humor of theirs. If this continues, I’m afraid I’m going to have to find a new dentist. Please help!”
I’m so glad you reached out, but boy oh boy have you got a nasty problem on your hands. No-one wants a loser dentist, least of all a prospector. Unfortunately, if he’s getting excluded from that playful inter-dentist ribbing, you might have to throw the whole dentist away, because there’s no coming back from a blow like that.
There’s two things you can do: you can either find a new dentist stat and leave this one to rot like your teeth (hopefully your new dentist can save your teeth though, you need them biters!), or you can find a new dentist but before you leave, gently drop this one some tips on how to be a little bit cool so he doesn’t die alone. Here are some suggestions:
- Wear sunglasses. 😎
- Hot-glue lizards to the ceiling above the chair.
- Wall art so the office reflects his personality. Examples – a ‘Live Laugh Love’ sign to show he’s breezy and chill, that ‘Fight Club’ poster with Brad Pitt to show that he’s updated on pop culture.
- Can’t go wrong with one or more office dogs.
- Above all, don’t forget to not be yourself! :)
