2. Things Right Handers Do that annoy us!

Wow! – this one touched a nerve! We have been inundated with comments and emails about the things right-handers do that annoy us. I have gone through them all and added them to our page on this here – Things right-handers do that annoy us. Use that link to see the full list or add any more of your thoughts as comments. Here are some of my favourites from the new ones:

  • Even though they take our empty glass from the left-side of our plate, waiters always replenish our drinks by putting glass back on the right side, so we have to cross our plate (and soil our dress sleeves) to get it. I once gave a waiter a hefty tip for recognizing I was left-handed and replacing my drink on the left-side where he had taken it from.
  • Putting knives and forks etc away in a drawer with handles on the right hand side.
  • Right handers change the handles of your drills and right angle grinders to suit them but don’t change the handles back when they return them.
  • Telling me there is something wrong with my scissors (I use left-handed ones).
  • Tablets are always packed the wrong way for lefthandersI've noticed that medication is always packaged so that it's more convenient for right-handers to extract. Every time I open a packet containing tablets, I open it from the left, where the medication is always blocked by the patient information leaflet, so you have to close up the packet and open it at the other end.
  • Right handers ALWAYS make their checkmarks backwards!

3. Tying shoelaces left-handed

We have had a few emails recently with people asking about differences between left and right-handers in tying shoelaces and also saying that as a lefthander their shoelaces keep coming undone and is there some connection. We have found the same think so Keith contacted the world expert on shoelace tying, Ian Fieggen in Australia to find out more.

The short answer is, “yes” the way you tie your knots as a left-hander makes your shoelaces come undone, but it is not quite as simple as that.

Use this link to see the full story on shoelace tying and leave your own comments, experiences and advice and also find out about the Ian Knot which is ambidextrous, faster and, he thinks, solves the problem.
