25 Daily Struggles Only Lefties Will Understand





There is a world of a difference between being right- or left-handed— and that is on top of the main disparity of the dominant hand. Many people won’t understand that a seemingly small matter to most can make a mountain of a difference for the “lucky” few whose brains are wired differently.

Although some believe that left-handed people have advantages, they still face life with certain difficulties others don’t. Big or small, these challenges make life as a leftie quite different from righties— and a lot more interesting.

Here are 25 of many struggles lefties face every day:

1. Finding the Holy Grail of armchairs.

Studying is already hard, but schools and universities seem to have made it harder for lefties because these armchairs are very rare. In fact, even if they do exist, they aren’t even reserved for those who need it most.

2. Using “ergonomic” scissors.

Taking this pair of scissors into consideration, it is safe to say that ergonomic ability depends on the user. Don’t you agree?

3. It’s either you cannot read them…

…or others won’t be able to!

Either way, it’s clear that mugs aren’t made for lefties.

4. The same is true for pen decals.

5. Lefties have it hard when it comes to paperwork. Just take this folder, for example!

6. Writing on spiral notebooks…

7. Or writing anywhere for that matter.

As if that isn’t torture enough, lefties are faced with an even greater evil.

8. A right-handed seatmate.

9. And then, the pen’s cap gradually unscrew.

10. Ice cream scoopers are obviously designed by a right-handed inventor…

And its not because they are less smart than right-handed people but because their initial answers are irrecognizable even before they get to complete it!

15. Lefties also struggle when firing a weapon…

16. Playing cards…

21. Lefties have to be creative when playing musical instruments…

23. Shaking hands with right-handed new acquaitances is also a pain…

But not more than…

24. …confirming that you’re a leftie even when people already see you writing with your left hand.

Still, lefties have one thing to get excited about:

25. Discovering that some of their favorite characters are left-handed, too.
