left handed ripping

Are you left handed? When you tear off a check or paper from a notepad, does it rip unevenly? Only recently did I discover that perforation works better if you pull from the other direction, like a right handed person. My checks kept ripping down the middle, but I blamed it on poor quality. When I pulled the other way, they came off cleanly. Who knew that even perforation discriminated against lefties?

  1. Perforation, scissors, and even language are stacked against you unfortunate wrong-handers. For example, the word ‘sinister’ derives from the Latin word ‘sinister’ that means left, or unlucky. Interestingly, the Latin word for right is ‘dexter’, from which we get dexterity. Alas, ’tis an injustice that may never be remedied.

  5. Thanks for the link, except for the part which says I’m going to die sooner than if I had been right handed. :P
