National Left Handed Day

Do left handed people really have this much trouble with electronics? I am left handed and have only ever had issues with trying to play instruments like the guitar, or learn to play baseball. My dad could never teach me/not that had he had the want to either. My uncles who were left handed all batted right handed, tried to teach me, and I just couldn't do what they tried to teach me. It wasn't until like 2nd grade when I learned to play baseball. Boo.

I am a left-hander that has acclimated to the right-handed world. I learned to use the right-handed scissors, desks, baseball bat (yep, I bat right handed...love me some baseball), etc. The only thing I really do left-handed anymore is write.

Lol, yay left-handedness!!

For most things, my handedness didn't matter. For sports it kinda did though. For procedural things, like cutting things with knives/scalpels, it can be annoying sometimes because you have to actively mirror things.

I have never even thought that it would makes things difficult. I just thought it would become second nature.

I am now wondering what makes people become left handed. Especially with parents who are right handed. It is like the gay nurture vs nature debate, only way more interesting.

Mike: Yeah, a TV remote? It's easy enough to operate with either hand.

@ Joey: Yay, lefty! I love finding out little similarities we have in common!

@ Aek: Are you a lefty too? Scissors always bothered me in school and I never understood why they didn't cut. Damn righties!

@ Mind of Mine: The debate intrigues me too! It can be a bit of a challenge...

@ fan of casey: I agree on the remote... like really?!

Lol, yes, I am left-handed. Scissors usually didn't bother me . . . much, but I did actively seek out the (few) lefty scissors in class. I currently have a really nice lefty scissor. :-P

It's not possible to play baseball left handed? :O That's one thing in which cricket scores over its cousin - left handed batsmen are common! Try learning that instead. :)
