Lefty here, and there was an interesting side discussion on the “Controversial Road Diet” thread about how bikes in the US are inherently right-handed because of how their brakes are set up. Sometimes this asymmetry might work to a lefty’s advantage – @noahdjango suggested that learning a righty guitar as a lefty might be easier because fretting with your left hand isn’t easy – but it made me wonder what other things are right/left hand biased that we aren’t aware of on a daily basis. I mean, there are so many things that are really obvious like scissors and computer mouses, but it’s the subtle ones that really annoy me, like smart phones. Since I use it with my left hand, I find that the prompts are always too far away for my thumb to hit.
So c’mon my fellow sinister handers, it’s time to unburden yourselves. What sneakily right-handed things have been annoying you?
