    Default People who don't know left from right...

    I know this is pretty stupid for my first post on this new board, but it bugs the hell out of me. Maybe it's just an Arizona thing (cue the "yes, it's just an Arizona thing" posts), but why are there a lot of intelligent people who need to hold their hands up (with the left hand making an L shape) in order to remember which way is left and which was is right? Is it really that hard to remember? Do any of you know people who do this? I've seen about 5 people do it in the last month and it just baffles me. End rant.

    I knew a kid when I was in high school that had left foot/right foot written on his shoes...

    When I was a little kid, we would ride down Lucas Creek Road in Newport News and I would always know right from left from the intersection on where it hits Denbigh Boulevard.

    We never went to the left for some reason, I guess there was nothing going on by Denbigh High School, so we'd always go the "right way".

    If I ever have a momentary lapse, that intersection tells me which way to go, still to this day. Granted, I know my left from my right, but if there's a delay, its because I'm quickly thinking back to the road we always turned right on.

    Also amusing since it's a Newport News anecdote.

    I'm struggling with this one. Are we talking about actual adults?

    I mean, we always have a few middle school kids in our club that have a hard time when given instructions like "left leg over"... they pause for a minute, or move their "other left leg"

    Yes, I'm talking about actual adults. Like 40 year old well-educated adults. I've also seen some of my friends do it (ok, most of them aren't too bright). I obviously understand little kids having difficulty.

    No, he's doing it with his right hand. They do it with their left because that way they see the "L" shape and know that it stands for "left".
