sometimes when your click to do an option in SW(beta branch active) you guy will do the action such as hammering, picking up food from the crockpot when he's not even close to thing he's picking/hammering.
I was playing Warly at the time so the crockpot issue could just be him.
I used hammering in this situation since its seems to be the option that does this the most
1. take out hammer 2. stand a few steps away from what you want to hammer 3. Right click to hammer as soon as posssible Your character should start hammering even while still being a little away from what you want to hammer.
