Nope no issues at all, trust me I suffer from pretty bad leftism! Just keep telling yourself it can't be any worst than being a lefty and have to write within a three ring binder! Need I say more...

Umm... couldn't you just write on the left-hand side instead of the right? Am I missing something here?

True, but then you have to write on the back of every page. Just think about it.

I am a lefty... I have heard it is a sign of genius.

From Wikipedia:

"Throughout history being right-handed was considered normal (the Latin word dexter meant "right" and is associated with skill, while the Latin word sinister meant "left" and is associated with wickedness)."

And if y'all have problems with the right handed BlackBerrys, just turn the,m upside down!

I have no problem. I use my index finger on my left hand, or god forbid, if I should use my right hand, my thumb retains the required amount of dexterity.

I almost do everything left handed unless what I am doing makes me do it right handed. So I think if they introduced a left handed blackberry I would still use the right because I've gotten used to it.

Only good thing about lefties is the handshake should be cleaner.

Default Adaptation

I learned a long time ago that growing up in a "right handed" world meant that you needed a certain level of adaptation. However, my "adaptation" is so bad now that I can't even use scissors with my left hand anymore.

I use my blackberry in whichever hand it happens to be in. Thumb of my right hand and middle finger with my left hand.

You got that right, I'm a leftie and I've pretty much gotten so used to doing things right handed that about all I do is write as a leftie.

Why can't lefties ever write in regular notebooks/binders/etc? I don't understand the problem. Is it the position of the hand vis a vis the rings?

So that explains all those years of getting in trouble. Now I can better embrace my wickedness.

As for the three ring binder that is just a pain in the a@#.

I have the same problem, my secretary bought me left-handed scissors, trying to be helpful, but I can't use them because I've used right-handed ones for so long.
