Funny thing about that; I can actually use right-handed scissors perfectly with my left hand. Ironically, my mom once got me a pair of left-handed scissors and I couldn't use them at all. Go figure.

That's really ironic, don't you think?

Yeah; it's weird. But I guess that proves that you can do anything if you try hard enough.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

True. I suppose I should put my mind towards learning how to adapt in a righty dominated world...

Yup. :) Things aren't going to change anytime soon, so we had better get used to it. :)

Lol! Sounds like you should start a procrastinators alliance, too. ;)

I figured. But it's the perfect response really. I mean, there's no other way for me to respond to that...

I've always used my mouse left-handed.  And I don't even reverse the keys.  So I feel like every time I click on something, I'm giving the finger to the right-handed world.  It's a nice morale booster.  I also tend to leave the mouse on the left side of the computer.  Hey, if I have to move the mouse every time I use a computer somewhere, the rest of the world should have to move it back!  Sure, I might sound like a jerk, but hey, enjoy that little taste of my everyday life, righties!

And left-handed scissors are the worst!  By the end of kindergarten I had learned that those special scissors would do nothing except mangle and fold the paper I was trying to cut.  And even worse, they all had brightly colored handles, almost as if the manufacturers wanted to make sure everyone could tell that you were a lefty, just to set you completely apart.  Because of all that, I use scissors right-handed.  There's just no other way to do it.  The world will have a cure for cancer and personal jetpacks before finally breaking the technology that will allow left-handed scissors to actually work.

I use my mouse right handed now, but for a long time I used it left handed.  I learned to use it right handed....welll after my really nice left handed gaming mouse broke.  That was a while ago though.  Now I can use my mouse either way kinda but I have come to prefer right handed.

I can't write anything with my right hand though.  My handwriting sucks in the first place but I have 0 coordination in my right hand.  It just doesn't work for writing.

I use right handed scissors left handed.... it has always worked fine.

Well, I'm right handed, but for most of a year I had to be a lefty cause I tore the ligament between my thumb and index finger and couldn't use my right hand. That count? ^^;

You're stretching it, but I'll allow it. You've felt the way us lefties have had to live, so you seem to be understanding...

Welcome Colin! I too happen to have hand-eye coordination problems. Well, technically I have a lot of problems...

Yay for lefties! I too am a left-handed person. darn pen-smudges... And scissors! Ugh!

Although, through sheer force of habit, I do a fair few things with my right hand. I play the violin right-handed (though it's difficult to switch and messes up an orchestra), and use the mouse and remote with my right hand. I drink ambidextrously too.
And you eat with your left hand because the right hand is holding mine. :D

I don't know about that...if I'm eating at a long table, there are only two places I can sit, because everywhere else will result in me bumping elbows with the righties at the table. :P
