What Exactly Is Wrong With My Left Hand?

We had a little talk among the elders and the youths in my church. I know it is more cultural than anything especially among a certain tribe, that giving someone something with the left hand is rude. My friend told me his father refused to collect something from him because he used his left hand, and he had a whole lot in his right hand. I don't understand how one would be on my left side, let's say in the car or in a tight corner where you can't turn properly and I still can't use my left which is convenient at the moment to give out something. One of the elders in my church said the right side is positive and the left means negative. Lol, others said the left is used to pack dirt. I don't understand this meantality is something really wrong with the left hand?

^^ no, not because you speak pidgin.

Just your general demeanor- seems like someone who lived in Nigeria.

One would expect you to have more of an AA bearing, but you dont. By AA I dont necessarily mean ghetto and hiphop.

hmm, I guess Nigerian parents overseas are doing a good job raising their kids as Nigerians or in their various ethnic affiliations.

OK, now this is just so wrong! Most left-handed people wipe their asses with their right hands, same way right-handed people do the opposite!

the left hand is so wrong!! all of my kids will be trained with the right hand.

naw jk

i had a teacher way back when and he did his Peace Corps in Tanzania. thats the exact reason they told him why the left hand was wrong and they dont use it for anything besides that.

so im guessing thats the reason.

@poster

someone once told me that some people refuse to touch anything coming from your left hand because its supposedly the hand with which you wipe your Bottom and therefore not very clean.

but dont take my words for it.

There has been so many pf these topics. Anyway, nothing is wrong with your left hand. It's just culture. You either choose to ascribe to it, or you don't. It's that simple.
