My big pet peeve- people who cut things cradled in their hand. If it is an employee of mine, I correct them right then and there. I ticked off my FOL a month or so ago after watching him cut a bagel with a bread knife aimed toward his hand by telling him of my few experiences of knife/ hand accidents (slashes and punctures) while he did it... He told me that he had always cut a bagel that way and he was OK with the risk factor. Then the other day I happened to be home and my wife is there watching Martha Stewart and what is she doing? Cutting a shortcake cradled in her hand with a big breadknife aimed towards her palm. And there might even be someone out there watching thinking that they will do it just like Martha and take their brand new Henckel breadknife and cut through a shortcake, hand and all....
