I’m Always Right…
Handed that is.
Have you ever figured out seating arrangements based on who is right handed and who is left handed? When I was growing up, I typically sat between my mom and sister (both lefties). Young children can easily adapt to situations and instead of entering into a battle of elbows, I ate left handed like they did.
I still think and act mostly like a righty though. In high school, I competed in the International Extemp category on the speech team. For this category, we had filing bins with news articles and on our team you shared a set of bins with one other person. My “bin partner” was a boy named Shane who was left handed. Did you know that there is a drastically different method of filing for right and left-handed people?
I keep running into this filing system clash, almost everywhere I’ve worked. Sometimes I wish that I could be ambidextrous. One of my former bosses could write his name with both hands at the same time. It was incredible.
I made a point to train myself to be able to inject insulin with my left hand, but I think the training is going to stop there.
Do you find that you do typical tasks (like filing) different than people who are opposite-handed?
