TEST: Most People Today Can’t Name This Commonly Used Item


If you went to school back in the day, you probably recognize this common school-room staple.

Not only that, if you got too ambitious and went quickly, you would be gifted with a beautiful bruise across your knuckles.

These old-fashioned pencil sharpeners were everywhere…do you remember them?

That video pretty much says it all. When the sharpener DID work, it was a day to be celebrated. Otherwise, I hope you brought a few spare pencils with you.

Do you remember using these classroom fixtures? Share if you do!
