    well I feel stupid. I have had this 6 1/2 square ruler for about 6 years now and always have had the darnedest time using it because it had this backing on it that was paper. Always thought about buying a new one but just never have. Well today was working on cutting some fabric and just happened to turn it over. there was a portion missing from one corner so I took a closer look. Well low and behold, the paper backing was peeling off. So I just peeled it the rest of the way. Which is what you were supposed to do after you bought the stupid thing. So lets just say that I am now feeling really foolish all these years. Good thing I have never purchased another square ruler that size. Anyone else do this too? :roll: :lol: :oops: :XD:

    I think that is a hoot - I have done many things equally as "dumb" - Look at it this way - now you do not have to go out and get a new one!!

    you aren't the stupid one.

    whoever thought it was necessary to glue paper backs to rulers, knowing they had to be peeled off to use them, is the idiot. :hunf:

    i thought the paper is on the back to aid in the original manufacturing/cutting process.
