We need extra pay as we wear right handed tools down faster than the correct user. On the other hand, I can't work left-handed scissors and they cost my Grandma twice as much as a regular pair. The shop keeper saw us arriving.

I decided that if someone ever tried to fight me, I would pretend to be right handed then go at em with my left. There could be advantages.
you probably wouldn't have to pretend, most people automatically assume someone else is right handed anyway

but i love the idea of actively pretending to be right-handed, "Yup. Gonna hitcha in the face with my good ol' right hand. the hand i use for most things, like uh, all the fights i've done, or using scissors, opening doors, or blanching vegetables. Right-handed right here, hehe he he, heh."

when it comes to my job, a lot of times i need to sit differently than right-handed people do in relation to the patient. some offices don't have the space to accommodate that but i don't deal with those very often anyway and if i do, i just make it work. i have to wonder how much quietly adapting to circumstances without asking for anything has been shaped by being left-handed. anyway.

I'm left handed but somehow I can use normal scissors without problems. I don't really consider myself ambidextrous though, it is simply an anomaly.

Lefty as well. I have had no real problems using things made for right handed people. I have however nudged a lot of people in the ribs by way of writing like I do, like turning papers sideways etc. I don't mind that part though.

I got lucky. I'm ambidextrous. There's very little that I do with one hand exclusively. I write with my right hand. Before the onset of my MD I played basketball left handed. Aside from those I honestly can't think of anything that I can't do with both hands equally.
