Do you flip your burger/sandwich?

Self-explanatory. I flip. Seems the most natural/ergonomic to me, but that's my perspective. Seems weird as hell to me how people slide their thumbs underneath a burger and eat it right-side up, but that's just me.

  1. Right side up, never thought to do otherwise I guess.

    1. Yes, I do too. I don't mean to, but I just naturally do it.

      It really depends how you reach your burgers. I reach my burgers with my four fingers on the bottom and thumbs on top. As such, the burger naturally get flip as I bring it to my mouth.

      If you grab your burgers with the thumbs on the bottom and four fingers on top, then you won't flip the burger.

      1. Occasionally a thin bottom bun-half gets soggy. Fixed by inverting the sandwich.

        1. No. Never.

          It wouldn't taste as good flipped.

          1. Never.

            It might kick the universe out of alignment or something.
