    My husband scissor-naps all the time, and by the time I track the scissors down, they are dull, dull, dull. I have a couple of pair that he is absolutely forbidden to touch - the others are the ones he's already ruined doing whatever he thought they might be useful for in the garage.

    My husband needed to put a hole in a piece of poster board. I offered him my pointed embroidery scissors (just to make the hole, mind you). He refused saying 'I don't want to use your good scissors'. Bless him, he's a keeper!

    My baby brother did that with my mothers thread snips all the time! I wonder if she knew why they were so dull!!!

    Shortly after I got my first pair of Ginghers, my husband used them for cutting carpet...which ruined the sharpness and the alignment...and he felt so bad that he did go buy me a new pair. He never did that again...and after that I was always sure to have plenty of scissors around that could be used for anything, and kept my Ginghers well out of sight.

    For a fee, Ginghers can go back to the company for alignment and sharpening.

    I remember growing up and being told not to touch Mom's good sewing scissors. (I didn't) Now I know the importance of that.

    Of course, I tried that same rule but it didn't go over that well. I now have Fiskars with a chunk out from using them as wire cutter. I now have a nice pair of Ginghers that are hidden.
