Hey Lefties!

I need some help. We have two left-handed employees at work. The correction tape that we use is not very lefty friendly and they break the tape almost every time they try to use it. No one wants to use actual liquid paper, they like the dry tape. Any suggestions as to what brand or style I should look for to make their lives a little less messy? =)

  • Unfortunately, mess is a fact of left handed life. Let them practice a bit and the mess will get better. It takes me a few tries to "think" like a right handed person.

  • Hmmm I don't know! I write with my left hand ...but use scissors, the mouse, tape, etc. with my right hand. I guess as a child I adjusted to a right handed friendly world :)
