Spotted: Just the Tip?

One of our interns was cutting the ties off of the mail with the tip of the scissors (and I mean the very tip) right on my desk.  He struggled for about 20 seconds before I said "slide it further down," knowing that the blades are sharper/scissors are more effective that way...because I was taught that, along with how to properly use scissors, in kindergarten. He slid the scissors to the side, not forward, and tried again. I patiently replied, "no...slide them FORWARD." He was like "oh oh...okay thanks."

It is much more entertaining with visuals!  I couldn't help but shake my head and proceed to email everyone else in the office... "I JUST TAUGHT THE INTERN HOW TO USE SCISSORS."
