De-lurking to tell what a weird family I come from: we sometimes used
to cut sandwiches into 4 squares! I associate this w/ being a little
kid (elementary school & younger). I guess there was some concept
about smaller pieces for smaller hands & mouths? I don't know. You
can only do this with a very thin sandwich & I mostly remember it
with butter -- well, margarine, actually -- sandwiches.

Grownup &/or thicker sandwiches were cut vertically.

I also think horizontal is really weird.

Now I cut diagonally. Too much Martha exposure, maybe. (Free Martha!)
