I’m left-handed. I hate it when I smear what I just wrote and the side of my hand gets dirty.

Because I am also left-handed, the nails on my right hand always look better. I guess it’s because I use my left hand for everything and they are always breaking or chipping while the nails on my right hand grow out really nice and strong. It really bothers me when people ask to see my ring but there’s nothing I can do about it

I was sooo happy when they came out with electric pencil sharpeners! I have always hated sharpening pencils because your pencil never sharpens right, and you always have to bang your knuckles when the pencil sharpener is mounted on the wall for right-handed people to use!  The other thing is scissors-everyone else is right-handed in my family too!  I always wished I could make nice posters, but yeah-I always smudge everything with my left hand, so I guess I will never make a living at making pretty caligraphy. ๐Ÿ™

I’m a lefty! I hated those desks with armrests when we were in school. I would get in trouble for sitting sideways in the desk!

Another lefty here and I agree, writing is the worst! I smudge everything and more gets on my hand than the paper.

I’m right handed, and my left hand always looks better than the right. :/

I’m a lefty too!

I always hated the “smudge factor” the PP’s are talking about… I also hated the spiral notebooks and three ring binders! The spirals and rings were always in the way when you were trying to write!! UGHHH!

I really like that I’m ambidextrous though ๐Ÿ™‚

Since I grew up in a right handed world there are a lot of things I can do with my left AND right hand. So I feel kind of special. And I played softball all my life and was always the first baseman because I could reach out farther from the base with my glove on my right hand (I didn’t have to do the arm/body crossover with my glove). And I could bat both right and left, yay for lefties!

I’m a lefty and it’s alright ;o)

Some of these will be repeats from PP, but here goes…

Things I love about being a lefty:

We are not common!  Only about 10-15% of the world’s population uses their left hand.

Higher I.Q. and better spatial awareness.

70% of the creative arts are dominated by lefties.


Things I hate about being a lefty:

Bumping elbows at the dinner table (I always try to get the left corner!)


Can openers

Cameras (the shutter button is always on the right)

Spiral notebooks and binders

Paper trimmers (guillotines) are made for right-handed people!

Rulers (Think about it…they are backward for a lefty.)

Tape measure (again backward for the left-handed person.)

Door handles (they turn right)

My iPhone (to “unlock” the screen you have to use your right hand…just too difficult to use the left hand with controlled motion.  iPhone users know what I mean…includes the volume buttons.)

Blackberry (track-wheel thing to scroll is on the right.)

What I hate about being left handed: I was forced to be right handed by this “christian” school I went to so now I will forever have bad writing and I am uncoordinated as all get out… but the thing I noticed about lefties is problems sitting next to people at the table…. LOL But i LOVE the fact that my daughter is left handed and I will never try to change that =)
