Lefty here...or as they say, one of those who are in their 'right mind'!!
I have learned over the decades, though, how to use my right hand on occasion--like with my computer mouse! Welcome to one of my favorite sites.
I'm left handed too. As a child, teachers were determined I was not going to write with my left hand ! It was really frowned upon. It was seen as
some form of handicap.
Unbelievable !!! ( This was the late 50 's / early 60's. )
I remember teachers drawing the attention of my " Defect " to the entire class, too.
I seem to think I was the only left hander in the class, at the time.
As a result of this, I grew up writing with my left hand badly. I used to get hold of door knobs awkwardly too.. ..
I still smudge cheque books ! Not that I need to use one often these days.
Made up for this " Drawback " in life, since. I think I've done o.k, and am happy with my lot....
Fellow lefties unite!
You know, at one of my recent jobs about 80% of our staff slowly realized that we were all left handed. It was brilliant to outnumber the right handed
folk for once. We never did make it far enough to incorporate a store wide switch to left handed scissors though...
