I just noticed that every single coin silver spoon I have that is engraved at a 90 degree angle -- is engraved so that it can be read when held in your right hand. If you hold it in your left - it reads upside down.

It's a conspiracy against people like myself - and other fine folks who are left-handed.

My wife is left handed and informed me years ago that everyone is born left handed and remains that way until they make a mistake.

I'm also left-handed, and I've only one fork in my collection that is obviously for a left-handed person. It's a pastry fork with the large tine on the opposite side.
