Left Handers Day
When: Always on August 13th
If you are a Leftie, Then Left Handers Day is just for you!
Left Handers, also commonly referred to as Southpaws, are the brunt of more than their share of jokes all year long. How do I know? Yup, you guessed it! It ain't easy being a leftie. But those of us who are, would have it no other way. Lefties are proud of it.
The world is built for right handers. Examples are everywhere. For example:
Did you Know? Right handed people operate in the left side of the brain. Left handed people use the right side. Therefore, only left handed people are in their right mind.
Left Hander's certainly earned the right to have a day dedicated to them. And, August 13th is that day. So take a minute to appreciate your left handed friends and loved ones. Don't forget to send them a Left Handed Day Ecard to show your respect.
Remember today and every day: "Lefties have rights!"
Left Handed Facts and Trivia:
Think about it: Everyone is a Left Hander in Left Hand, West Virginia.
Lefthander's Slogan: "Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it". ...Brilliant Author unknown
I’m a leftie drove my dad crazy teaching me how to bat, swing a 20oz hammer, and tie my shoes but I overcame can’t do much with my right hand but move a mouse.
That is a left handed person not a lefty in the political sense....”shudder”
I’m ambidextrose - I can eat sugary snacks equally well with either hand...
Yes they do. I had to sit at one once, and then I knew how the lefties felt.
I have left handed scissors and made my wife select a silver pattern with a two sided gravy ladle.
Most measuring devices, including all tape measures are made for right handers. For a lefty, the numbers are upside down
I did have some classes in college with left handed desks but they were always in the back of the room.
Until my mother died, she was apologetic for my being left handed.
Cool. I’m an ambidextrousconversationalist ... able to carry on two conversations at the same time.
LOL - just as long as you don’t talk out of both sides of your mouth! :-B
Well, well, well....(chuckle)
I actually have a left-handed mouse. It’s a Logitech, and I bought it in 1997. They don’t make em anymore. I’m still using it. Doesn’t have the scroll wheel or any of those nifty new features, but I can live without those :)
Cool! I never heard of this, but it will make my grandson happy.
My mom was ambidextrous as is my grandson. Both write left handed. My cousin was totally left handed, and we had to make sure we sat with her to my left every Thanksgiving, otherwise we were bumping elbows through the whole meal!
We recently purchased a Logitech left-hand mouse with a scroll wheel for my boss. I just googled “left-handed mouse” to find it.
When I attended the U of Southern Miss in the late ‘80s I had several classes in College Hall. I was happy to find one left-handed desk which I carried with me from room to room for the semester.
I always say my “handedness” is the only thing “left” about me.
I have a left-handed mouse as well (which really screws up the IT guys when they have to work on my computer, LOL!). I really, really want to get a wireless ergonomic keyboard with a wireless left-handed mouse, but apparently nobody makes them. I don’t get why such an significant part of the market is being ignored.
The areas where things are a little dicey for lefties is using a circular or jigsaw (the sawdust comes out on the wrong side right into your face, or the blade protection is on the wrong side), and driving a straight stick where your non-dominant hand is used to shift the gears. I’d probably LOVE driving a stick in Britain.
Dyslexic lefties UNTIE!
I’m an admin and have answered phones most of my career and they all are designed for Right Handers - the receiver is always on the left (they assume you’ll pick it up with your left hand so that your right hand is free to write down anything of importance)...
Leftie here! heres the latest leftie mouse... http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/mice_pointers/mice/devices/168&cl=us,en
I want a mouse with side buttons for my Battlefield game but it seems this is my only choice. I’m pissed they don’t make their higher models leftie.
