I cut my right thumb

quite badly last weekend, and now have to wear a thick bandage. I am a lefty, but now really notice how many common things I do with my right hand because it is easier. Scissors, opening doors, doing up buttons, pushing buttons, etc. It’s because everything is set up for righties.

I always thought I was clumsy because stuff just seemed wrong. But maybe not. It’s not me, it’s the environment. I wonder how much this generalizes to other things, where people are not in the majority.
