Telling Someone They Have Food in Their Teeth

Should you point out to someone they have food in their teeth?

Don't just think about it. Don't point it out to someone else. Go to your friend as soon as you can, take them aside, and tell them! Sometimes you have to put your own embarrassment aside. Don't worry what he or she will think about you, or how awkward it might be. Instead, consider how that person will feel when they arrive home after a long day at work, full of client-meetings, presentations, etc., only to find a hunk of spinach in between their front teeth.
