A while back a customer called me and asked how to pass a saliva test. I recommended the mouthwash we have and explained everything about it. Then he asked me if I knew if “Altoids” worked to pass a saliva test. I told him I highly doubt he can pass with “Altoids”. He did not take my advice, said thank you and bye.
2 days later I receive a phone call from the same guy. He seems very upset and was panicking.
“How can I help you?”
“Hi, I don’t know if you remember me. Oh, please I hope you remember me. I spoke to you 2 days ago, you told me I should have purchased the mouthwash, but I wanted to be a smart ass. So, I told you I was going to try to eat “Altoids”, you know those mints, because I heard that if you stuff your face with them and suck on enough of them prior to your test, that you can pass your test.”
“ Yes, I remember you. What happened?”
“Well I started to eat the “Altoids” the night before my test. I bought so many of them. I would put them in my mouth, move them to my cheeks and let them melt there. So, I did it last night and all day today. I even did it driving to the test. The last time I did it, I started to feel my mouth burning, so I looked in my mouth and the inside of my cheeks on both sides are covered in sores. OMG!! I don’t know what to do!
All I could say was: “WOW!”
“Now what am I supposed to do? If they look in my mouth, they will know I was trying to conceal the toxins in my mouth. I heard they even ask you if you have had any mint intake. I’m really worried and do not know what to do. Please help!”
“You can ether go try and pass your test or it will be better if you can try and reschedule your test.”
“ Ok, I will call you back, Thank You.”
The customer called back within a couple of minutes. He was able to reschedule his test. He purchased the mouthwash from me, called back in 2 weeks and told me he passed.
