I just had to share this one, for all the times I’ve heard, “Wow, you’re left-handed?”  I’ve heard it so many times that I came up with a snappy comeback:  “All the best people are.”

You’d think it’s something rare, the way people say it like, “Wow, you’ve got a Super Bowl ring?”  About 8% of people—1 in 12—are left-handed, so if you work at a checkout counter or somewhere where people write checks and sign their name, you’re bound to see several every day.  It really shouldn’t seem that weird.

Fun left-hander fact: the Latin word for ‘left’ is sinister.

If you enjoyed this article, why not rate it and share it with your friends on Twitter, Facebook, or StumbleUpon?

    I never got around to thinking of a snappy remark when people say that. I think I’ll use yours, ’cause it’s awesome!
