OMG me too! I have a Tupperware cake cutter--newer model--that is made only for right-handed people. Watching me use it is very comical!

Re: The 18 Worst things for left-handed people

My DH is a lefty & always complains about how annoying it is, so he's hoping our baby will be right handed so he won't have to deal with that. I really do take for granted how everything is made for righties (I'm VERY right handed, my left hand is practically useless-- whereas DH has had to become more ambidextrous to deal with all the things made for righties)

My DH and I are both lefties and I was really hoping that our DD was going to be a lefty too.

If our next DC is a boy I know DH would love for him to be a lefty so he can be one of the great left-handed pitchers...Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

Wish I knew about this when I was applying to college - I'm a lefty. Hopefully I will remember this when DS 2 is ready for college since he seems to be favoring his left hand.

My dad is as well and he taught me how to work right handed scissors (which was a godsend because even if there were lefty scissors available - they never were as sharp as the righty ones).

My husband thinks I'm crazy when I say certain kitchen tools are geared for righties.

DH was disappointed when DS 1 seemed to be favoring his right hand but, is hopeful he has a chance with DS 2 since he's favoring his left hand (and seems more coordinated).

Oh the binder thing brings back memories.

Once in 6th grade my teacher took extra points off my spelling test because she assumed I erased (erasable ink was big back then) because there were ink smudges on the page from my hand.

I'm going to be 39 next week.. I'm not over it yet. Chat Icon

And my daughter too! Filing this away for 13 years from now...

My son would be *perfect* were it not for that little right handed flaw he has. Chat Icon Chat Icon

Yup... all soooo true! Worst are those green scissors you had in the class and they hardly cut and were stiff. Chat Icon

Don't get me started on the desk chairs that I could never get comfy in. Chat Icon Chat Icon

My hand ALWAYS had smudges on it. I don't have the best handwriting either. It's legible and I try, but I was jealous of the girls with the cute bubbly writing. Chat Icon

3 ring binders sucked! Pretty much had to start writing in the middle of the page.

Last... I still eat with elbows close by even if no one is next to me.
