How are you supposed to eat an open faced sandwich?

I usually partially reconstruct the sandwich by putting the lettuce or other accompaniments on top of the usual filling and then pick it up like a pizza slice, but this is kind of messy and in-elegant (I felt like people are staring at how messy I was being). Are you supposed to cut it up and eat it with a fork? What happens if it's on a baguette that's impervious to a standard dinner knife (as is often the case at French cafes)?
