My son's elementary school also has a nut-free table in the cafeteria, and I can understand the reasoning behind it. I'm not going to be the one making jokes about it.
I assumed it was probably getting more common nowadays, due to the increase in severe peanut allergies.
I hope this woman doesn't get to chop down trees, because they aren't the same level of danger and I see trees as a precious resource. I know trees aren't an "endangered species" so to speak, but there are far fewer of them than there used to be due to housing and other expansion, as well as people using the wood. But why cut down more trees than what we need to?
