    Hey, Robert–ever try folding bed linen with your right-handed wife. I’m married to a northpaw, too, and it must be a funny thing to watch us try to coordinate a sheet-folding activity or anything else that involves handed dexterity (hmmm . . . “dexterity” . . . there’s another word with built-in prejudice against us).

  2. Love the posters.

    I’m still learning things about left-handers. Left-handers thread belts the opposite way from right-handers, so belts with writing on are upside down. Left-handers put their right arm in jackets first, so parents should be aware of this when assisting children to dress.

    hey am Snoby and am proud to be a lefty.Lved those posters and we will be so happy if you produce more left handed product like left handed computer keyboard even in our smart phone.the funny thing about me is I know 6 languages and some times my teachers get irritated because i use to write from next page to previous page example:i will start writing at pg no:100 and my ending page no will be pgno:01 [Romas are the ones who made this world right-handed]am not blaming them it is just a general knowledge

    In our family of 7 kids only 2 of us where the chosen ones to be lefties. I am a totally left hander. I am an upholsterer so I use hammers in my left and I have several pairs of left scissors. They are always sharp because others can’t use them cutting things they shouldn’t. I think lefties are creative. We can’t all be lefties because the world isn’t ready to be perfect. I love being a leftie. I took an acrylic painting class and the teacher said she had never successfully taught a leftie. After the first lesson I shattered that record.

  5. Janet Nazer says:

    I’m the only one in my family (parents, two brothers, plus 2 nieces and a nephew) who is left handed. What I hated about being left handed in grade school, is the way the kids’ desks were made; all for right handed kids. None for us lefties. As an adult, one of the things my dad told me, was that I “couldn’t do certain things (like using a hammer to nail boards) because I’m left handed.” Gee thanks, Dad for messing with my mind.

    I like that I look at life with a slightly different slant than other people. However, this does tend to some misunderstanding or confusion about what I say sometimes. My wife (who is right-handed) will often just hold up her fingers in the shape of a letter “L” to signify that I just made a lefty statement that she may not totally understand. Makes conversation interesting! Do others have this happen? What is the thing about being “vocally inept”? I do not sing well either.

  7. Jennifer (Chapmon) Napier says:

    So very proud to be left handed. I am from the South and daycare was an uncommon thought back when I was a tot. But between moves for reasons demand that a daycare was temporary for me. I was blessed to have an aunt younger than my mother by about 13 yes. She and her class visited the daycare facility and saw my hands being slapped with spoons, rulers and other people. My aunt jerked me away for my protection and glazed the daycare demanding answers to why what they were doing was acceptable. I was stated to be Damaged, ha God Almighty says I think not. Made in my image. Wonder how the people will feel one day if they found Christ a SOUTHPAW? I am a wonderful singer, painter and all around beautiful soul if I do say so myself!

    Go Proudly around lefties.

    To the people on drinks I hate them on the right side too. As well as when the utensils are uncomfortable and laid to the right also. You are not alone

    Left Handed People lack SIN!!!

  9. Phil Schwartz says:

    I’m so pleased that most of the recent American Presidents have been lefty. The lone exception? George W. Bush–generally recognized as the worst of the bunch.

    One utensil that has always given me trouble is the manual can opener, the kind with the butterfly handle that has to be turned with the right hand. Impossible for us southpaws! Now I have an electric can opener that opens from the top and is relatively easy for me–but very difficult for my wife . . . who is right-handed. Lucky for her, she has me around! Long live the left!

    I am right-handed, but my son is a lefty, and I would like to put up a graphic that doesn’t make it seem like I’m left-handed, but that I’m proud and support my son and other left-handed family and friends. I wasn’t able to find one like that last year.

  11. Laura says:

    I find it interesting, that while I am the only left-handed person in my family, I was married to a left-handed man, and now my current boyfriend is also left-handed.

    What are the odds of that happening?

  12. Kevin Mitnick says:

    I enjoy being left handed except when using scissors, credit card machines in stores (they assume you sign righty!) and golfing w/o my clubs… You’d think all courses would have one set on hand for loan.. I mean really it’s not like they have to stock 30 bags of clubs for the droves of lefties coming in…
    OH! and I hate being left handed when shopping for leftie items because they are ALWAYS out of stock!

    It’s worth it though because life comes easy to us…

  13. Amreen says:

    Left-handers are the first one choose their seats at the table
    Isn’t that awesome
    I’m the only left-handed person in my family and I’m proud if that

  14. Paul says:

    These posters are going up on my computer wall Aug. Thirteenth (or when I feel like it, my birthday etc.) ONLY LEFTY IN THE HOUSE!!!!! I’m gonna drive everyone else crazy!!! 😀

  15. s Wulff says:

    I am the third child and I am right-handed,born in mid fifties. Both my older sister and brother we left-handed.They were born 11 months apart and 3 yrs older than me.I still remember conversation about my mother trying to force both my siblings to be right-handed.
    When my second child was born at 6 mo,I proudly told my pediatrician AND my mother my daughter was going to be a lefty! Bought her lefty kiddy scissors(didn’t like them) and her Kindergarten teacher was a lefty too! She embraces being a lefty and feels it makes her unique!

  16. Martin Baird says:

    Am I the only one that gets annoyed when a waitress place a cup in front of you and deliberately turns the handle to the right. An assumption that everyone is right handed. What makes things worse, they are trained to do this……

  17. I am a survivor of the 50’s & 60′ left handed persona when it was very odd a curse and disability to be left handed. Yes I said curse!

    As ludicrous as this sounds, my parents were in the belief that I was born cursed because I was left handed and they were bound and determined to rid our family of this curse by teaching me to be right handed.

    Yes for the first 7 years of my life my father and mother would tie my left hand to the belt loop on the back of my pants and force me, yes I said force me to use my right hand for everything, which of course made life very difficult!

    However the final outcome, I won and they were forced to live with my curse/disability, that goes without saying that though I seemed to be somewhat accident prone, I was extremely gifted in many other areas.

    In baseball I was able to switch hit, throw and catch both left and right handed, and yes as many other left handed people will testify or have proven, I was/am very artistic, vocally inept, many consider me a gifted writer so I do write that is. But probably the gift of being left handed is having the ability to be more passionate than our right handed brothers and sisters!

    That’s my short story and I’d love to hear from you!

    Best regards,

    Edward Thomas Rieth

  19. Thylias Moss says:

    Love these posters; have already posted them on my Fb page! –thaank you for the posters!

  20. Jim Story says:

    Happy Left-Handed day to all of you lucky lefties. Just remember that one of these days us 11% will rule the world. When that happens lets see how righties make out using all left-handed tools and utensils. Pay-backs are hell… Left handed forever….

  21. Virginia Greeley says:

    I started to take the quiz on handedness, but became frustrated. I HAVE to use my right eye because my left eye had to be removed! Ialso HAVE to use my right ear because of my pacemaker. I used to use my left ear all the time.

  22. tanya says:

    I am left-handed and at times its rather difficult , but I think its my blessing because I am a clever person.

  23. Dephrose Mnyasa says:

    I love those posters! And yes, it’s a left-handed thing, the right-handed ones wouldn’t understand no matter how hard we try to make them understand!!

  24. Richard Lindelof says:

    Great posters and I will use a Lefty Profile picture on Lefties
    day. I find it funny though that the instructions say “right click to save”. Being a lefty, I have my computer set up so I “left click to save”. It’s easy to do. Just another way to change the Righty World to my way of thinking!
