      I'm right handed. It's super difficult for me to paint the nails on my right hand!

      I'm left handed but I can use my right hand for a lot of things. I never got the hand of those special lefty scissors.

      I'm left-handed. Really so hard for me to use the right one.

      I'm a righty and so is my husband and our son is lefty. I would say over half of the kids we under 5 are also lefty which is shocking to us because growing up there were so few lefties out there!

      I'm actually surprised just how many of us are Left Handed.
      When this question was asked on another Forum about 10 years ago the result was only 3 and that was out of a large membership.

      Lefties are usually thought to make up about 20% of a population but like even here on the forum, sometimes you can get clusters and there might seem to be more than expected.
      Being left handed does throw up a few problems, like some find with scissors, but mostly it makes very little difference, it just seems a little odd when looking at someone working lefthanded.

      There is a Left Handed shop on Shaftsbury Avenue in London.
      As you say Scissors are a problem,I also find cheque books a problem after you have written several cheques as your then having to get over all the stubs.
      I wouldn't be without my Left Handed screwdriver :D

      I have got a couple of pair of LH scissors, but can never be bothered to find them and usually just hack at things with ordinary ones!!



      edit - still using cheques?

      Nope but when I was they were a problem :)

      Also when I was at school ** years ago we had to use fountain pens.
      Being left handed meant that as you wrote from left to right your hand was passing over the wet ink.

      I am a right handed person, my left hand is terrible at doing stuff like writing.
