I'm one of the 10 percent of the population that's left handed. Because we're such a minority a lot of things don't work as well for us. All of them are first world problems, but really annoying.
- Ergonomic scissors have the wide and skinny blades upside down when you hold them in your left hand and you can't see where you're cutting.
- Any chair with an attached desk has the desk on the right hand side.
- I have to choose my spot carefully at a restaurant so I don't have a right-left elbow war with the person next to me.
- If I'm using a pen with slow drying ink I'll drag the side of my hand through it, and both my hand and the paper end up smeared.
- Spiral notebooks are hard to use, because the spiral part gets in the way. So is paper inside a three ring binder.
- The ounce measurements on glass measuring cups are only visible when you hold them with your right hand.
- The number keypad on my computer keyboard is on the right hand side. I
either have to reach over or use my right hand to input the numbers.
- Way back when I learned how to use a mouse no one told me there was an option to reverse the buttons to make it work left-handed. I figured out how to do it with my right hand (and still do).
