When a ski instructor becomes a "Tooth Fairy Arbitrator"

post #1 of 19

Many of you know Spencer.  If you do, then he's probably made you smile somewhere along the way. 

 

Well.........I saw this posted on Northstar's Facebook wall and had to share with the EpicSki community, because this is Epic!

Here's the note on the wall:

Yesterday, little Jack lost his very first tooth during his ski lesson. But... he accidentally swallowed it! Knowing just how important the first lost tooth can be, Northstar Ski Instructor (and Lost Tooth Arbitrator), Spencer Abbott promptly drafted him up an official I.O.U. to bring home for the Tooth Fairy.
We love our Northstar Coaches, too!

I'm just stoked that I spelled "arbitrator" correctly...

That's great dookey! I spent about 10 minutes searching for a tiny white tooth on a big white surface about three weeks ago, together with the unlucky little girls father. She had a solid face plant and was crying her soul out, not because of the pain, but because of the Tooth Fairy.

 

I wish I had thought of writing an IOU, that would have saved me some time - I did the second best thing and called the Tooth Fairy from the lift while she was listening together with her father. The next lesson she was all smiles, with a very impressive gap in the front - she had baked cookies together with her mother that she brought me and my heart melted. These small incidents are very rewarding to me. I'll copy your MO when/if it happens again.

This is going create a new area for training in snowsport school.  I hope we don't have to bring it to legal group to OK itROTF.gif

That note is wonderful.  I'm sure it not only brought a smile to the child's face, but his parents as well.

Solid story madMads. I like the quick thinking (plus in this day and age the TF probably has a Smart Phone).

FWIW, my family hails from Norway (outside of Sandnes).

Made me smile too.

 

Clever, considerate, imaginative, and classy moves by both dookey and madMads. Life tossed you both some lemons, and y'all made lemonade.

Technically the tooth wasn't really lost...  wink.gif eek.gif

 

You knew right where it was...  not sure if the parents were willing to go the "extra mile" to have the first tooth!  I have the feeling my wife would have in that situation.  She's a sucker for keepsake momentos.

 

Nice story nonetheless.

That's a cool story. My lady teaches new entrants at primary school - she will be super impressed when I show her.

 

Best

Of course if the kid had known your online screen name, and knew what the word meant, she'd have had the answer as to where to find her missing tooth.

Great job, Spencer! This story alone speaks volumes on your talent and overall awesomeness as a kids' instructor. My hat is off to you!

Best regards,
