Chalk it down.I've been struggling with right-handed tools for over 30 years.
I'm hoping this will be the answer to all my prayers.

FFS, there's no such thing as a left or right handed screw driver.

Cant be, a screw driver is perfectly symmetrical and there fore cant be handed.

Do people really fall for this. I suppose they have to get a left handed hammer too.

Of course there are left handed screwdrivers.
I have one, but because I'm right handed it's all but useless unless I'm in a really tight corner and have to use my left hand.

Jesus, they could have come up with a better name for their group...

"specially formulated by the Coalition of Left Handed Peoples for the Furthering of Left Handed Recognition and Also the Metric System. (AKA CLHPFLHRAMS.) "

Fuck's sake, could they not have just called themselves Justice for Lefties or something
