Let's say you just got done lighting a lantern with a match!  (Crazy, I know.)

I don't really care what kind of match you use, I care more how you put that match out when you are done with it.

Are you a match blower outer?

Are you a match shaker?

Do  you hold onto the match, watching it burn until it reaches your fingertips, just so you can feel something?

Match shaker.
I like that last one. Somebody should get Sheryl Crow to sing about it.

I try to blow out before it heats my fingers up.  Shaking may dislodge the hot head and start something.  Small can on my workbench for them.

Lanterns are like tools. 
You can not have too many unless your wife says so!!

Gas is what you use for washing parts diesel is for making power!

Never thought about it much, usually I use a BBQ lighter. But, I guess when it comes to matches, I’m a shaker.

Although there are the occasional let ‘em burn down-to-my-fingers because I’m watching the lantern spit, sputter, flare and attempt lift-off instead 🙂

Although I have matches in just about all my lantern cases, I almost always use a torch.  Not a big fan of the soot generated by some flare ups!  I do use matches to start the campfire.  Those get shaken and then toss in the fire, which is kind of silly if you think about it!  🤔

I drop or toss them onto a fireproof surface. Sometimes the act extinguishes them, sometimes they burn themselves up...

No. I thought I was the only one--aside from the buddy I shot.

Anyhow, a really quick and efficient way to stop a match is to reply to a common question with "No, but your butt makes those pants look awful tight".
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

I guess depending on my mood, I have done all three, and when at my work bench, however I extinguish, I throw them in an old metal coffee can.

I use matches all the time and generally just throw then in a tunafish can. What tunafish can - it was available and has kind of become a fixture.

And speaking of matches - I lament the inability to buy good strike anywhere matches.  The only ones available now are not really worth it.
