It's a Right-handed World....

I have always ran into problems being a lefty. I am not complaining. I think being left-handed is a part of who I am. However, I have ran across several common household instruments that are difficult; if not impossible to use for a lefty.

A hand-operated can-opener- I recently cut my hand open and had to get stitches trying to operate one of these

An old-fashioned potato peeler- I just can't hold it correctly

Scissors- Not all scissors, but some scissors were just not made for lefty's

I consider being left-handed to be an inconvenience; however it has also served as a great conversation starter my entire life. The righty's are fascinated with us ; )

Bravo. The left handed are an under-represented minority! :) They're also more artistic, intuitive, and better in bed.

I think we are awesome people cause we are left handed.
