the gamut from holding a knife, pen, or hairbrush to throwing a line over a
tree limb. But I don't NOT use my left hand. I was holding something in my
right hand and typing the UPC into a cash register with my left. My
supervisor asked in amazement if I were left handed. I couldn't see any
issue there. People use both hands to type or play the piano. The I started
noticing several cashiers couldn't function on registers that had the
conveyor belt coming from the one certain side. Passing objects over a
scanner and dropping them into bags doesn't seem like a "fine motor" skill.
Weird to me. I imagine that not too far down the road we'll conclude that
our mainly sedentary and ready made convenience life style has resulted in
generations who haven't developed the nerve pathways and related brain
function we take for granted.
