True.

 

As to the wallet. When I open it the pocket for all my change is on the left hand side.

 

Here's a neat little trick. Buy yourself a left handed ruler and then when a righty asks anyone if they have a ruler they can borrow, say yes and give them yours. Watch the confusion as they try to measure a line with it :smileylol:

lol... I've never had a left-handed ruler, but, I have been known to give my metric ruler to imperial folks and watch their confusion. :smileywink:

Oh, and what is this 'change' you speak of? ;-p

 

I've had a debit card since I was 17, so I've never been in the habit of carrying cash / getting change.

 

If I do end up with some coins, I don't carry them with me, just drop them in the ashtray in case I need some for parking meters.

We had a young welding apprentice here (Canada) who was confused that there were more than 10 inches in one foot.  I was curious as to when the school system up here stopped teaching imperial.

If they tell you to get the root canal just tell them to pull the tooth.

Far easier in the long run.

Lost big filling, asked the dentist to pull the tooth, told to get a root canal, spent the $1600, got the tooh capped, it was pulled less than a year later - should have done that first.

And root canals suck.
