Unusual living arrangements - a mum in her 40's or 50's, her daughter in her 20's, and some man in his 30's. Was he a boarder or a boyfriend or their manager?

With so many totally violent and absolutely brainless stupids outside you have to print it detailed on the knife’s package or better just directly onto the knife itself: Use it only for cooking purposes or cutting solid materials or threads, don’t ever aim your knife onto human’s bodies and as the counterpart near it or the knife holder, don’t run with your stomach into it, but run into another direction. lol
