My Pet Peeve for the Letter P
The beaver is a well-known animal and in fact is indigenous to Canada. It even has a place on the back of the Canadian nickel. The beaver is known for its huge sharp teeth that can chew through a tree making it fall to the ground. As far as my schooling has taught me humans have no connections to the beaver in as far as genetics go so why on earth do people chew the wood of the pencil?
I have seen that they have toppers that go onto the end of the pencil just for pencil chewers. I guess I’ll have to invest in a few of them and leave them in the office “hoping” the pencil chewers take the hint!
