The Great Sandwich Debate

Yesterday my co-worker pulled out her little half sandwich that she always brings to work and a fellow co-worker happened to look at it and notice that it wasn't folded "correctly". This perplexed me, and the co-worker with the sandwich, as neither of us knew that there was a "correct" way to fold a sandwich. Apparently my "Okie descindant friend" ODF (Don't worry, this is a compliment) felt that the sandwich should be folded side by side. My Italian descendant friend (IDF for short - also a compliment) folded hers from top to bottom or as my ODF said, round to square, and this seemed to disturb my ODF's sense of the logical world and now my IDF's world is stressed. I've never heard someone exclaim that they absolutely could not fold a sandwich a certain way. In fact, in my family, it was all about shoving it in your face and eating it. It's all going to come out the same in the end right? So who gave a rats ass how it was folded. What a new concept to worry about, how your sandwich is folded. What kind of therapy do you need to deal with this?
Who knows. What I want to know is how many of you out there actually have an issue with this. And if so, which way do you fold your sandwich? Do you not fold it? Maybe you cut it and if so how? Tell me your pb&j stories.
I can't wait to hear! Yes, I really am excited to hear back. I do have a life, but I'm into the small things. Tell me your sandwich stories.

Folding sandwiches?
Who wants half a sandwich?

Well, I know of at least one person who does.

Once again, I have to say you cannot put a round piece of bread to a square piece of bread. This morning while making the pb & honey sandwich for my son I thought about this issue. I just cannot do it. As for folding sandwiches, I rarely do that. Being the ODF Friend of Omnivores Delight, I must say the only time I fold my sandwich is when I use a single piece of white bread with left overs in it(like spaghetti). Yum! Yum!

Wow! my ODF friend, you have created an Okie Taco! White bread folded around leftover spagetti. Next time you make one could you take a picture so I can post it on my blog?
