What would you think/do when you find your roommate/partner is sharpening a knife?

Asked by Unofficial_Member (5107points) January 25th, 2019

Well, to be honest, you’re sleeping but upon hearing some weird sound you’re awaken from your slumber and suddenly find him/her sharpening a knife in your bedroom in the middle of the night. He/she has such a blast sharpening the knife and you can’t help but notice that he/she has psychotic eyes and evil grin throughout the session. It seems that the knife is never sharp enough for him/her.

What would you do? Feel free to be as realistic or as funny as you want.

My first action would be to gently determine whether they are awake, or experiencing RLS/REM sleep. If they are sleepwalking, I would vacate the premises quick. No telling where a dream could take a turn.
If they are awake, I would ask if it was a good time to bring out the brick cheese.

I would say to this person, “I take hot not cold sake with my sashimi.”

I would immediately wonder how long it had been since I cleaned my pistol.

It would be just fine with me, as long as they complimented my ass. ;-)

I’d wonder why he didn’t have it sharp already. You’re never supposed to put them away dull!

I was recently given a Work Sharp Guided Field Sharperner and have sharpened every knife around the house. It works so well I’ve given one as a gift.
Now my kitchen knives are like razors. I touch up the blades after I use them. It only take a few passes and they’re perfect again.

I would think that he was in a manic state. Also that he can’t get to sleep. Hopefully he isn’t going in a killing spree.

Unless he is in a black hoodie, with eyeliner dramatically applied, laughing maniacally, I would TOTALLY ignore it. (sarcasm)

@inherency Bazinga! Haha

Thanks for recognizing the reference. ;-)

Why can’t the stupid bastard do that in his room instead of waking me up with it?

si3tech's avatar

I would think they are “sharpening a knife”.Do? Nothing.

My first impression would be scared of course. But I’ll just pretend to be asleep and make sure that my phone is on my hand ready to dial 911. Paranoid I would be. But why the hell is he/she doing that!?
