    I use a right-handed can opener, just turn it around so handles are facing away from me and turn it with my left hand, works good!

    I have never minded being a lefty. I eat with my left hand, holding the fork left and switching over to right for using a knife left. I drink with my right largely because my Mom encouraged me to do this. I use scissors with my right hand, but I write with my left. I have always had a right slant when I write, but as I age, I find it less tiring to slant left or print instead. I use a mouse with my right hand, and swing a baseball bat left.

    I use my left hand for virtually everything else, but I always find it easier to use scissors with my right hand. It’s the only thing I struggle to do with my left hand. Also, I can use a computer mouse with my left hand, but I find it easier with my right hand. Or is it just me being awkward?

    I am a 72 y.o. Leftie. I’ve never had any trouble with being that way. I taught myself to use a knife in my right hand and a fork in my left. It was my choice. The thing that confuses me is the spoon and fork. i can use either hand, but I have trouble with knives and scissors. Can only use them in my left hand.

    love getting the news about lefties.

    I love being left handed. However when I was a child (in the 60s), my teacher would hit me on the knuckles with a ruler and tell me to use my right hand. When I was visiting my grandmother, she wouldn’t allow me to sit at the dinner table unless I used my right hand to eat. I adapted to use my right hand for several things but my left hand is very dominant.

      Ouch ..! Been a lefty for 72 years.Never had any problems. My writing slants like a right handers and no smearing. Never had any issues really..Guess I am lucky
