Did you know there is a Left Handers Day? While I am right handed I do have family members and friends that are left handed. So as I was telling them to have a wonderful “left Handers Day”, I started to think about all the obstacles and products that they must find hard to use.
Did you know that left handers are not allowed to play Polo ? Left-handed play was ruled out in 1975 for safety reasons. To date, only 3 players on the world circuit are left-handed.
Field Hockey players must also be right handed, although Ice hockey players can be left handed.
Spiral Notebooks must be a challenge. I did however find some left handed spiral notebooks on Amazon.
Keyboards with number key pads.
The pens at the bank on the little chains. How far do they reach, not far enough!
Do you remember these old desks? Some colleges still have them.
The cup holders in cars when you are the driver.
Ice cream scoops and can openers. Unless you find a left handed one… just give up.
Smearing the ink, chalk and markers when you are trying to write.
For the left handed gamers, ever notice how most video controllers are all for right handed people. Try finding one made for you.
When playing cards, do you sometimes secretly wish they would put the numbers on all four corners?
And then probably the most left handed pet peeve would be hearing “Are you left handed?” & “How do you write like that?” all the time.
Happy Left Handers Day! Do you have any more you would like to add to my list?
