We had some fun when the lefties were left alone in the Shickley office just before International Left-Handers Day (Aug. 13).
Joe and Rebecca are 2 left-handers outnumbered by 6 righties at Fortify Group. So we commiserated on desks with no left armrests, school scissor woes, and the unfairness of the right-handed world in general. (We covered a lot of ground). :)
Joe demonstrated how tricky it is to fill in at a right-oriented desk and both southpaws sat together to show how much sense the world could make if left-handers could always sit next to each other. (Note the perfect symmetry and elbow space.)
So here's to all the wonderful lefties out there (and the right-handers who understand them). Enjoy your day!
In honor of the day, take a quiz to learn how left-or-right-handed you really are:
