    Wow a kid who likes the crusts!!!

    Make them yourself and you’ll get what you want, tho’ I’m not sure the knife would get through today’s metal detectors lolz.

    Morning Marg and the rest of the gang!

    Time to get my daily Pibby fix :D

    Don’t give him any jelly. Toast the bread until it’s a golden black. crunchy…

    Oh, she heard him, margueritem; she just doesn’t care.

    If His Majesty wants to start packing his own lunches, I’m sure that Mom wouldn’t have any problem at all with supplying him with the necessary equipment.

    legaleagle48—-You’re right on the mark! In the meantime, it will be another, “Doggone it, she did it again” day in the lunchroom.

    Mom did the right thing. Calvin didn’t say the magic word, “PLEASE!”

    Wait a minute! Only use the end pieces? After making one sandwich, there’s no end pieces left! Now what?

    @ pouncingtiger, my feelings exactly, Calvin is going to have a short life with that altitude :-)

    kreole alone detected the fatal flaw in Calvin’s scheme!

    I hated the crusts. If the crust around the edge wasn’t aleady cut off, I just wouldn’t eat it. Good luck getting it your way, Calvin. It’s like going to McDonalds.

    somebodyshort, that might have been me. When I lived in Canada, I always had my burgers with mustard and extra pickle when I went to Harveys. Sometimes banana pepper too. But I always had their onion rings. Loved them!

    Good Morning, Marg, Mike & ♠Lonewolf♠

    When I was a child, it was soon after the second world war and people were poor, my parents too, and every day my mum gave me a bread with pig grease to school, always the same for years!!

    kreole: after Mom uses the “end pieces” there is left a part loaf with a piece at each end which become the “new end pieces”.

    With only slight tweaking, Calvin could have gotten at least half of what he wanted. The simple use of the word “please” could well have gotten him his jelly in a separate container. That might even make it easier for Mom. The crust only bit - not so much.

    When I was a child, it was PBJ every day, and yes, it got soggy. Fortunately, I liked it that way.

    Calvin’s mom did the classic thing.

    The most effective way to annoy someone without subjecting yourself into emotional overdrive:

    Pretend you are listening, agree on everything and do nothing.

    White bread is unacceptable, since it’s lacking in nutritive value, but even most whole-grain breads have white bread consistency. I prefer more grainy breads, and the end pieces. I almost always toast the bread. Calvin’s “request” was fairly polite for him, and not unreasonable, but ‘please’ should be highly encouraged, …required, even. - Snagglepuss Mom’s ‘ignoreance’ is unfortunate; it’s equivalent to Dad’s recent response to Calvin’s number-guessing game. A spoon should get ‘through customs’ easier than a knife. BTW, natural foods almost invariably taste better, once a person acquires a taste for them.
