    Aug. 13 is National Left-Handers day! Did you know that only 10% of the world is left-handed? That means we're a special and chosen people — even though we definitely deserve more than one day year. Here are 15 tweets that accurately describe what it is to be a lefty:




    Happy #LeftHandersDay also Fuck these chairs.


    Shout out to all the things I can’t use 🙃 #LeftHandersDay


    To my fellow lefties, cheers to never seeing the funny side of a coffee mug. #LeftHandersDay


    #LeftHandersDay literally my whole entire life 👀😐


    #LeftHandersDay Being left-handed meant getting pencil smudged all over the side of your hand Then accidentally smearing all the side-hand smudge into whatever surface you're working on so you get ugly-ass blotches all over your papers & essays. 🌚


    #LeftHandersDay Fact: It’s virtually impossible to write with your left hand in public without someone saying “Oh, are you left handed?”


    Left handed pple are quite a rare & unique breed. There are just 750million of us left in the world. We are creative, have high IQs & multitasking skills. From a medical standpoint, we are the only ones in our 'right' minds. Celebrate a left handed person today. #LeftHandersDay


    #LeftHandersDay is yet another appropriate time to celebrate RBG.


    Also, it is international #LeftHandersDay, so please enjoy these pictures of Keanu Reeves: proving that even those who are effortlessly beautiful still look a bit awkward writing left handed.


    Happy #LeftHandersDay to all my fellow lefties May you write something in pen without smudging your arm May you find a desk with the table on the left side so you can actually use it May you find a pair of scissors that you can actually use (Oh yes, we are all the devil)


    To the 10% of the world that finds themselves rearranging silverware at restaurants and dealing w/ pencil smudges on their hands. It’s our time. (At least for the next 24 hrs) Happy #LeftHandersDay! 🤚🏾


    #LeftHandersDay - because in a right-hander's world, this day is all I have left.


    Where’s the local Leftorium? #LeftHandersDay


    Aristotle, Leonardo da Vinci, Winston Churchill, Helen Keller, Marie Curie, Joan of Arc, Napoleon, Caesar, Einstein, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Eminem, Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Joliet, Oprah, Barack Obama, Nadal - and ME. Happy #LeftHandersDay to my fellow mutants
