Translation:These chopsticks are a little thick.

Pro tip: don't rub your chopsticks together in a store. It's rude to the store owner. Means that you're implying he's supplying subpar chopsticks by checking for splinters. http://justhungry.com/your-guide-better-chopstick-etiquette-mostly-japanese
I remember looking at a chopsticks (japanese) etiquette webpage a few years ago. Before looking at it, I felt confident in using chopsticks and had been complimented many times by many Asians of different nationalities. When I looked at that page, omg, I had broken several rules. @___@ It was for Japanese though, cause the Thai/Chinese I see everyday where I live at now, break the same rules that I did. Not supposed to saw cut/saw on things with your chopsticks. Not supposed to point at anything with them. Not supposed to gnaw your teeth or pick on a stuck piece of food on the chopsticks. wahahaha really strict. I knew about the not leave your chopsticks standing in the bowl, I'm always careful with that, but the Thais around me don't seem to care much about that rule. hehehe
