Don’t you hate when you have to use the top of a table to open your straw?
Maybe this is just me… But I can’t tear the straw paper by hand because I have fat fingers… So I grab the straw at its base and bang it on the table so that the straw can break the paper at the top.
Well… Clumsy me… When/if you grab the straw too high, sometimes the straw bends when you bang it. Sometimes when it bends, it breaks half way up the straw… As a result, it’s hard to get all of my beverage from the bottom of the cup… Thus…
KING’S LAW: Always grab it at the base.
