How do you Cut Toast?

More and more people started posting this tweet and asking the question, “how do you cut toast?” We started learning about others, and ourselves. Maybe you cut toast in a diagonal fashion, and that’s what you consider normal. Or perhaps, you have always sliced it lengthwise. Are you one of those less-commonly seen folks who cut it straight down the middle?

Personally, I always enjoyed eating my sandwiches more when they were sliced like number one in the image. However, if I was having soup or stew, number 3 would be ideal. I have never known anyone who cut their toast like it is shown in number two. So, which one is “normal” for you?
