Unhappy Just read me !! - December 11th 2010, 04:02 AM

Hey guys,
My parents are divoriced* and I see mt Dad every Friday after school ( about 3pm ~ 9:30 pm I see him .)

I have an impacted tooth that needs to get fixed by my dentist won't pull it, so sometimes I have to eat with my mouth open because it hurts so bad to have my mouth closed. My Dad just started to get on me about this because my Grandmother ( his mom) mentioned it to him and me... I told them why I can't eat with my mouth closed and I told them that I would try to cover my mouth with my hand when I eat with my mouth open.
Today my Dad and I were eating dinner and it was shake and bake chicken so I started off with my mouth open ( my tooth was acting up earlier today) and he said the RUDEST thing I have EVER HEARD!! He said "CANT YOU EAT WITH YOUR MOUTH CLOSED!?! IT'S LIKE EATING WITH A COW!!! ( he then immatated the sound of a cow eating.)
I wery hurt by this and he knows why I have to eat like that...
I had to tell him agagin too!

So can you please PLEASE comment and maybe tell me what I could say to him next time or whenever I bring this up!

Thanks so much!!

I've heard the cow thing so many times :P

But anyways, if your dentist won't fix it you need to get a second opinion from another dentist because something should be done if it's bothering you that much.
I think the best thing to do is just calmly tell him that he knows why and that it hurts too much to eat with your mouth shut. Back talking or getting mad could make things worse

Although it was rude, when there's something that annoys people, they sometimes react without thinking of the context. Your father is probably also busy because he's in between generations with you and his mother. That can be stressful enough nevermind what he does for work or other things. Best thing I can think of is look for a new dentist and in the mean time, go to a pharmacy and ask for a numbing gel. You may have to mix it with water and salt but it will relieve the pain temporarily until you see a new dentist. Also, use hot or cold packs while doing this for added effect. Alternatively, salt water mixture can help relieve the pain temporarily. Pain killers may work but some may just make you drowsy or not numb enough of the pain. Try these and any other DIY methods so it relieves you and you get less of the comments from your folks.

ALSO, this is just if you want, when they get angry, tell them why you're eating in a different way but don't mumble it, make it known quite loudly. Yeah you may get some backfire from it but they will understand why you're eating in such a way and perhaps not nag you in order to avoid a shouting match.


I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.

Maybe you just need to remind him. Or if he really gets that angry then I guess just live with the comments. I'd definitely not suggest any sort of back talking.
And I still think you need to go see another dentist.
