Everyone at the village market doesn’t like sharing a bowl of porridge with the toothless guy. The story goes that one sip of porridge from the toothless guy is equivalent to 10 sips from normal people with a full set of teeth. Apparently having gaps in his teeth allows the toothless guy to swallow way more porridge than everybody else.
We all have toothless friends, relatives, colleagues, customers, etc. These people generally suck the energy and fun out of our lives. We also have toothless habits and behaviors which cause us to spend all our money, get in debt, and a lot of ruin.
Like the folks in the village market, one is best advised not to share a bowl of porridge with the toothless guy.
