I do that too. My dad always sharpened my pencils this way, so I always thought it was normal.

Ahhh i see!! I would not pull a knife out around a bunch of kids to sharpen a pencil. Good call in keeping one in your pocket. Lol


Quoting Pnukey:

I'm a teacher and it seems that none of the students ever have a sharp pencil, so they're always asking for my pencil sharpener, so I just leave one of the hand-held ones in my pocket. It's an occupational hazard. My pocket contents are quite interesting some days.

Quoting mcclainprincess:

But... Why would you have a pencil sharpener in your pocket? Lol





Quoting Pnukey:

I usually have a pencil sharpener in my pocket, not a knife.
