When it comes to working in the kitchen, all of us have our own, unique style. From how dark we like our toast to how we flip a pancake, there are really no rules. Then again, there are times when things have rules by design and we don’t even know it.
Consider the way that you remove eggs from an egg carton. Do you start in the middle and work in both directions? Perhaps you always work right to left or left to right. Does this fall under the “no rules” category? Not if Twitter has anything to say about it!
Brian Faughnan got the ball started when he posted a question on Twitter. That simple question sparked a debate that is leaving many people questioning how they handle eggs in a refrigerator.
He asked: “Hey OCD folks. Do you empty the egg carton right to left, or left to right?”

It wasn’t long before people were debating the subject and some had a definite opinion!
Left to right, then I break off left half the carton when left side is empty.

Both sides so the center is balanced. There's no other logical way.

I make a pattern so the weight is evenly distributed: first row top, last row bottom, second row bottom, etc. Yes, my OCD is real.

OCDer here-you take two from left/right ,then the next two from the opposite side so it doesn't get unbalanced…it's an obvious answer

Outside to the middle. So the weight is evenly distributed. 😬

Neither. You remove them from the carton and place them in the egg container that came with the fridge. They are more secure there, it is what it was designed for, and more importantly you can re-inspect each egg (you did that at the grocery store first) to make sure it wasn't /1

Left to right & front to back.
Don't you people know about FIFO?
Carton also on left side with opening facing right.

All in all, over 400 comments came into the discussion. Some people agreed with each other but others came in from left field somewhere with a truly mind-blowing egg carton revelation.
So, how do you like your eggs?SKM: below-content placeholder
