Are you left-handed, right-handed, or ambidextrous?

I'm a lefty ... and I'm always annoyed by the lack of left handed stuff. For instance, at my school library, all computers are set up right-handed ... when I asked them about left-handed mouse set-ups, they said "just pull it to the other side"; when I pointed out the buttons are reversed, they just looked at me and said "Sorry, we can't change that" Ughh, yes they can - it's very simple - they're just lazy!!!

I would say it comes down to plain ignorance and then it's plain laziness if they don't do anything about it in the public libraries or school systems.

Honestly I didn't even know!

Well, ignorance that they don't have any set up, laziness because they wouldn't help me when I asked. I can't change it because I'd need an administrator password. They could change it in two seconds. It's as easy as going into the control panel. The guy clearly was more interested in the book he was reading than in my convience for the next two-hours I'd be researching there.

I'm right-handed, but my younger brother and sister are both left-handed. I know that sometimes my little bro can seem uncoordinated with buttons and stuff, but then I realize he's living as a lefty in a right-handed world.

I like this thread. I'm a wierd one. I eat, write, water ski ( slolam), and play racquetball left handed. Baseball, football, hockey and almost everything else I'm right handed. My dad is left handed and my mom was born left handed but went to catholic schools and they forced her to be right handed so that may have something to do with it.

I'm a righty. I remember being in grade school and my friend Josh was left-handed. He had such a hard time with notebooks, scissors, etc. When we were allowed to write with pens, he'd have to curve his arm/hand/wrist around the spirals of the notebook and then write from "above" the lines to keep his hand from smearing the ink. Poor guy! I know they now have left-handers notebooks and such, which is great, but I'm sure there isn't enough done to accomodate left-handers.

Silly confession: I've always found it sexy if a guy was left-handed. Don't ask why; I don't even get it! I bartended through college and always made sure to chat with the guys who signed their tabs left-handed. LOL

I'm completely right-handed. I'd hate to lose my left hand, but it doesn't do much. That's probably why I play the guitar so badly.
