I’ve been using chopsticks for more than a decade now but I never knew about this!
We often learn to do things by seeing our parents or other people do it. With that at hand, one thing is passed on to the next generation, after learning from the previous one. Ultimately, we believe that what we have learned is the correct way of doing things. But what if it was all wrong from the get-go?
We often use everyday items without thinking twice on how to use it. But what we don’t realize is that some of these everyday things have purposes we aren’t aware of. Apparently, every part counts—even the littlest of them all!
These everyday things are so simple that we never stopped and thought about how things are done the right way. Right now, I am suspended somewhere between shock and disbelief. As it turns out, we have been doing this one thing wrong—and it is time to correct that.
Have you ever noticed that ‘extra part’ on your wooden chopsticks when eating at Asian restaurants? Apparently, that is meant to be broken off to serve as a ‘rest’ for your chopsticks while you take drinks. This way, your chopsticks are kept clean.
