My first lead thread. Go easy with me, I am in HL virgin territory! Afterall, I am now at First Grade and am posting plus Smiley's. Whatever next? Grade Two of course - with pictures! (Maybe next time if I feel confident).
Well, what I was thinking was this:- most right-handers wear their watch on the left, but some go on the right.
I fully appreciate why a person who is left-handed wears their watch on the right wrist. This makes sense. You can out it on and take it off easily, maybe even wind it, adjust it, stroke or caress it with a sure and steady hand... steady! Easy Tiger!
So, what is going on with all the people who are not left-handed, but persist in wearing their watch on the right wrist?
Why, oh why, oh why? How do you get it on and off (seriously, have you ever tried folks to put your watch on the 'wrong' wrist for you?)
Wishing to be completely confrontational - it is just wrong, we should ban it and make it a criminal offence. Or at least a social faux pas. To be sniggered and pointed at!
At the very least, if you are right-handed and you have your watch on your right wrist, I feel I have been tricked into thinking you are a 'lefty'. You have double-bluffed me, and this puts me off balance, it distracts me, and I spend too much time thinking about it.
Some critical quesitons:-
What on earth happens when you're ambidextrous. No watch at all?
Perhaps we can get the stats on it. Maybe Alex's Marketing types know the ratio of weirdo's to 'normo's'?
Should these odd-balls be tought to go back to the left, or conversely, do we agree there is a real need for more of the so-called 'lefty' watch to be made available? Have I uncovered an 'unmet need'? Hey look at that, a real marketing term!
Are there any left-handers out there that still wear their watch on the left wrist ( I want to hear from you as you must surely be in your own extra special category)
Does anybody care?
I was born left-handed, taught to be right-handed, and wear my watch on my left wrist. I consider myself to be normal. At least in that regard.
