Pepperoni or Plain?

We bought a utility knife at a very popular, enormous store and when we checked out, the girl asked me for ID. We’re still not quite sure why. If it’s to make sure I’m old enough, then look at me. Do I look like I’m 20?

Honestly, I don’t think it’s got anything to do with age or the experience using a utility knife that comes with that age. Fact is, I am now on a list somewhere out there of potential suspects in crimes that occur using a utility knife. I am thrown in with all those unscrupulous folks that use these knives for unspeakable things like cutting pizza or pealing carrots. These people have no moral or culinary compass. But I must admit I’ve toyed with the idea of using a utility knife on a really small Philips head screw a few times. Maybe my compass is off a bit too…

I can buy an electric power saw without having to show my ID. I guess they figure the threat of a circular saw on food is remote and why would anyone even think about using it on a screw? Not to mention having to remember to bring an extension cord just in case.
