I know I was! My orthodontist was a jerk. He was so crabby and treated me rotten. I was just a kid so I was intimidated by him. He told me I was his worst patient because I was not able to open my mouth as wide as he needed to work on my teeth. His assistants would look at me in sympathy but I felt sympathy for them because they had to work with him all day. It was great when I finally had my braces off and never had to see him again. He did do a good job on my teeth though.
