Why don't you have something else if you're bored with the same thing?

That's as I suspected. But can you see why it doesn't make sense?
A sandwich is two slices of bread and a filling.
So the "round" unnecessary.
A slice of toast is a slice of toast. See above.

Not criticising your late mother of course Ali.

It just seems wrong to me.
I think it comes from the fact sandwiches and toast are often cut up. So you think you are eating more. Hence a round could be shared. Not by me of course - I will scratch and bite you.

Interesting idea re rounded bread, but baking loaves in tins has been around for a long time. Surely longer than sandwiches? Feel free to correct me - I can't be arsed to look into it. It might make my ranting feel irrelevant.

I couldn't be bothered either, hence the 'I don't know but I reckon'.

I assume we both skipped the "Rounds; Toast and Sandwiches" class at finishing school. And just went down the pub to experience "Rounds; Drinking in and Paying For".

Apparently, if this person is right, rounded loaves were the norm until around 60 years ago, and the oblong tins we use were once called sandwich tins.

Apparently one meaning of 'round' is a circular slice.

So, the meaning of 'round' for sharing has stuck with sandwiches, whilst the meaning of 'round' as a circular slice has stuck with toast.

I'll have a circle of bread and a triangle's worth of jam spread across it.

I had breakfast early Sunday evening at Cracked Barrel because we went too far up 81 before looking for a restaurant. I ordered breakfast because their dinner food sucks, unfortunately it turns out their breakfast sucks as well. Who can't make decent hash browns and sausage? Worst chain in America. I put that food in a stomach which had cleared itself most effectively in two directions the night before, bad idea.
