Yes, I am a southpaw. It is believed the term southpaw originated from baseball. A left-handed pitcher was called a southpaw because the pitcher faces south.
Here is a top five list of problems left-handers encounter in a right-handed world
5. Sitting at the dinner table: The left-hander has to sit to the left side of a right-hander or there will be a fight of the elbows!
4. The silver sleeve/hand: When writing with a pencil, if wearing long sleeves the left-hander has to pull the sleeve up so the pencil dust does not get all over the sleeve. This also applies to the hand. The left-hander often has to wash the hands after writing with a pencil because of the silver dust accumulated on the side of the hand as a result of the hand gliding over the words that have already been written.
3. The three ring binder/spiral notebook: How can the left-hander write to the edge of the paper?!
2. Scissors: Never get a straight cut because the blades are not facing correctly!
1. Hearing “Oh, you are left-handed” all the time!
