Yes. Righties don't understand.

I am right handed but have a daughter that is a leftie  that does all kinds of craft things and she is always running into that.  The latest is a calligraphy class and trying not to drag her arm across the wet ink; the teacher wasn't too helpful!  

When she was little and wanted to learn how to write her name she had fun using her left hand but when she put letters together she did mirror writing.  :wtf:  The letters were backwards and the order also.  It was the strangest thing!  We thought she would grow up to be the Unabomber or something until a friend of mine that's a teacher told me it was fairly common.  I got a lot of notes signed , EVOL, EM.   (except the letters were backwards.).  She eventually grew out of it in kindergarten. I still find left handedness intriguing!

And I can play pool left handed for some shots.  So instead of doing the cool behind-the-back cue shot (which I never mastered), I just switch hands.

I do that too. Any game that requires some sort of bat or ratchet I can do the same.
What game do you play with a ratchet? :smoke:

I am cross-dominant, which means that my left hand is dominant for some tasks, and my right hand for others. Ambidextrous would involve being equally good at the same task with both hands, which I am far from.

For simplicity I identify as right handed, purely based on the fact that I write using that hand. I recall being actively discouraged from doing things left-handed at school though, so I consider any right-handedness to be learned and not instinctive.

Yes. Righties don't understand.
Aye, right-handed scissors, ie 99% of scissors, don't work in the left-hand.
I remember at school we had red scissors for righties and green/yellow scissor for lefties

Yeah? I've not used a left-handed pair yet. I'm using right-handed ones in my right hand by now it would probably be weird.

My best friend at school was a leftie...but he plays drums right handed, because his teacher never thought to ask

Steve Morse is left-handed but he plays right-handed. Imagine how good he'd be if he decided to play with his left! :o

I consider myself as such too, except in my case, I identify as left handed for similar reasons.

I do a lot more with my left side than I used to because I don't wanna get carpal tunnel syndrome on my right side.  
Things like using the bank machine, punching in the house security code, and carrying my messenger bag.  
I also eat left handed. I wear Nike sports bands to protect my wrists.   Lefties are more accident prone and they often die young.
A lot of musicians and professional artists are lefties, but I'm not.  Creative activities involve the right side of the brain.
