One boy might be asking for his gift to be sent back to the Tooth Fairy after he checked under his pillow to find a list of chores instead of cash.
Imgur user phillybits posted a photo of his text conversation with his wife as the two decided what to do after their son placed his lost tooth on the desk and expected a visit from the Tooth Fairy.

"By leaving your tooth out for one of our Tooth Adjusters, you, the toothee, have entered into a contractual obligation to perform measured work, herein known as chores," the note says. "Please see the attached addendum for an updated list of those chores."
The note goes on to say that "if these obligations are not fully completed, without demand, in the specified time frame, we will have no recourse but to repossess all of your remaining teeth, by force if necessary, with no repayment to you."
