Mom has been right many many times in my lifetime. This is another one of those times.
I did listen to mom’s safety advice every other time I’ve used the mandolin, except for this one. single. time.
In the future, I won’t be using the mandolin without the stupid awkward plastic safety guard. At least I wasn’t using the waffle blade!
Mom, when you read this in a few hours, don’t get upset. I just ordered this online.
