Think it was time for a new pocket comb?
As far as I can recall, my family hadn't bought any since the mid 1980s or the late 1970s, or something like that. It's been too many decades to remember well where hand me down combs come from 8-). But needless to say, it was time.
Over the last year most of the teeth wore out, and it's been increasingly difficult to clean without expediting the process. For something like $3.25, I can't complain about the replacement as long as its endurance is measured in months or years, and not at all if it's measured in decades, lol.
