It's a righty's world, and we're just living in it.

2. There's no use trying to use the cupholders in cars since they're on your RIGHT side and virtually inaccessible with your left hand.

The hella awkward *trying keep your right hand on the steering wheel while attempting to maneuver your left hand over/under to reach the cup holder and attempting to repeat in reverse.*


7. You actually can't eat food in cans. Can openers are totally backwards and work for you approximately 0% of the time.

8. Cutting paper isn't even an option. Scissors are just pointless.

Unless you're one of those lefties who never had lefty scissors, were corrupted by society, and forced to learn to use right-handed scissors in elementary school.


9. You straight-up can't measure liquid. When the handle is on the *correct* side, only the metric lines show.

Do you think I actually know the conversion rate? Or perhaps that the US has suddenly gotten its shit together and started using metric?

11. Zippers are just barely usable, requiring you to try multiple times to use your incompetent right hand to close your jacket.

Alternatively, you can play "let's see how many times I can get my sleeve caught in the zipper while reaching around my body to get to the pull."

12. All of the important keys on a controller are on the right side. So basically, they just want us to lose every time.

Unless you admit defeat and put on lefty handicap, but honestly, who wants to do that?


16. Serrated knives and cake servers are worthless to you. The serrated edge is always on the wrong side.

17. Pens and pencils? The ultimate enemy. They make your hand look like a piece of abstract art.

I always wanted to be the Silver Surfer. Writing in pencil makes all those dreams come true!
