Do you know what the funniest thing in the world is for a left-handed person? When a right-handed person breaks their right arm. Then there are six-plus weeks of the righty going “I can’t do anything right anymore!” Well, welcome to our world, right-handers.

We left-handers have to live in a right-handed world throughout our entire lives. From opening tins to simply writing, everything is harder for a left-hander.

In Latin, the word for left is sinister. And that’s for a good reason. Many, many things are sinister for lefties. While many right-handers will never experience life as a left-hander, this slideshow hopes to illustrate some of the problems that we encounter on a regular basis.
