Left or Right

I am always surprised how many people don’t know there left from right lots of times people say turn left here and then point to the right. I had assumed that most people knew but I would say three out of ten don’t which amazes me.

I'm one of the three whose rights always are wrong. Amusingly it only happens when I'm in a vehicle.

Nice blog.

I'm one of those people. Bad thing is, I'm a taxi driver! I also mix up pink and yellow.

Hi Bob, I too use my 'other' left, right!

Funny, it's your shortest post which has attracted the most comments.

Nice blog, keep it up.

I know this was from ages ago but I had to say something because I'm one of those who has a problem with left and right.

It's not a matter of not knowing, it's a recognised condition in which wires are crossed in the brain. I know which is which if I have a second to think but my instant reaction is to do the opposite of what I hear.

It's no better if you say 'you side' or 'me side' either - many a patient passenger has tried that!

Oh my God that's so true! Even worse, they don't seem to know their "straight" from "turn here", or "take the left fork".
