: I was having trouble understanding the meaning of this phrase, and could really use some help.

: "Did your mother cut off your crusts?" I have also heard "You should eat your crusts"

I don't know about elsewhere in the world, but American schoolchildren eat a lot of sandwiches. Sometimes their mothers cut off the crust. Well, of course, there are restaurants that do the same, but the more common experience has mom cutting off the crusts. Or not. SS
