You’ve Been Buttering Bread Wrong Your Whole Life

Toast

How many ways can we be bad at life? Well, here’s one more . . .

An etiquette expert on YouTube claims we’ve all been buttering bread wrong our entire life. “Wrong” as in you’re doing it like an uncultured peasant.

He says taking a piece of bread and buttering the whole thing at once is WRONG. The right way to do it involves a four-step process . . .

Step One: Take a piece of bread or a bread roll, and put it on your plate.

Step Two: Use a knife to put a small amount of butter on your plate that’s just for you. You shouldn’t take it from the dish and put it directly on your bread . . . that’s disgusting.

Step Three: Take your piece of bread and break it up into smaller, bite-sized pieces with your hands. Somehow, manhandling your bread more is “correct” etiquette. (???)

Step Four: Butter each bite-sized piece individually before you eat it. Never butter them all at once.

He claims that’s the classy way to do it. Now you know.
