I think my electric toothbrush is haunted.

So, I'm standing in my kitchen putting some chicken nuggets in the oven, when all of a sudden, I hear a racket coming from the bathroom. I go to investigate. I turn the bathroom light on (which also activates the bathroom electrical outlet) and the noise stops. I turn off the light, and it starts up again. My electric toothbrush has switched on all by itself. So, I remove it from the stand, and it keeps going. I hit all of the buttons, and it keeps going. I let it sit on the counter for over two minutes (aka the designated tooth-brushing timer limit), and it keeps going. The only thing that can stop it is when it is in its charger, plugged into an active outlet.

This is the most bizarre thing that has ever happened to me regarding an electrical appliance.

Did you...like...take a lot of drugs in the early 70s? I mean a LOT of drugs...?

Acid flashbacks and all that.

Take it to the woods and set it free. Perhaps it can make some positive contribution to the ever growing deer problem.

That would be one solution. I don't know what else to do with it. I mean, can I just toss Satan's toothbrush in the dumpster?

I agree with Patronus. Take it to the woods and set it free. If it comes back to you, brush your teeth. If it doesn't, it was never yours to begin with.

And don't forget to floss.

Maybe it was protesting that you were making chicken nuggets! j/k

I had something similar happen during the summer. My computer is in my bedroom. I'm sitting at the computer, and suddenly my bbedroom air conditioner goes on by itself. Weird.

mp - have you looked into the history of the toothbrush? Have there been any unexplained or violent deaths on the brush? Have you consulted with a dental psychic or medium? Maybe the team from TAPS could come in and check it out one night?
