You could take 'casual naps' or have 'casual drinks'!

Lefties are the only ones that think with their right state of mind, so how is being a lefty a bad thing? :P

That being said, I'm not a lefty, I'm a righty, though I am starting to train myself to be ambidexterous

What do you mean, a lefty?

His watch is on his left wrist and his mouse is to the left of his keyboard. He has his telephone to the right of his monitor. All this makes him a righty by my standards. As a lefty I have each of those items reversed from him.

Just curious....how is the mouse on the left make him a righty? I mean...yeah....everything else suggests it, but having the mouse on the left (to me) would make it REALLY hard to use the mouse.

As a lefty, wouldnt it be uncomfortable and awkward using your off hand for fine (or even gross) hand movements?

Wow, all this 'Is he left, is he right' stuff. Funny.
Watches don't mean a thing, I'm right handed and I feel it more comfortable on my right wrist, so people can wear watches on whatever wrist feels more comfortable.
I would suggest he is left handed because the mouse is on the left hand side, and that's a big thing. Right handers suck at using the mouse with their left hand, it works but takes longer (even by a few seconds). The telephone...that could be because that's the only place it would fit. HA!
Anyways, casual Fridays and casual swearing....I want to see someone dress as a hobo for Casual Friday! That would be casual....in a sense. :)

That would make Fridays so very much more usable around work! Parts coming out with surface finish issues? No problem! Machine axies drifting as they warm up? We can take care of that in a hurry! XD

Long-time (just shy of 21 years, to be exact) proto-ambidextrous lefty here: Watches don't mean much. I wear mine on the right, but that was an aesthetic choice based on where my friends were wearing theirs back in fifth grade, so... Mouse on the left is usually a good indication of left-handedness, but not a perfect one: I have always used a right-handed mouse, because it's what was available back when I started using computers, and it's how things were set up at every public or school computer I've ever used. Given time, you can master most skills with either hand, especially if you start learning young. (For example, I used to play hockey right-handed, again because those were the only sticks we had available at the time. I bat whichever way I happen to be feeling like at that moment, because I was never given "proper" batting instruction.)

I didn't realize this would be such an important issue!

I'm right handed. With a mouse I use my right hand, but with the thing on my laptop I use my left hand (it only has one button.)

I'm in my first year of engineering and we have a project where we have to make something in Pro/E, and I find that frustrating sometimes.

I don't see why it became such a huge issue either xD I think the FIRST person who commented on him using his left hand for the mouse (whether he's a leftie or not) was just saying that because, if Jam told him to right click when he was using his a left-handed mouse, it wouldn't be the same as if he was using a right-handed mouse. He'd have to LEFT click, in order to right click. So, that'd be confusing xP

I figure I'd add in my own take on it, as a lefty.

I wear my watch on my right, mostly because I write with my left and (as if I didn't have enough to worry about without smudging my writing as I move my hand across the page) I don't want to scratch up the metal band. Well, for that reason and completely unrelated metaphysical purposes.

The above who mentioned the mouse on the right/left hand side being an indication of anything are correct. I've used a right-handed mouse from day one of using a computer; it actually feels awkward for me to use a lefty mouse. However, as my home 'puter is a laptop, I only have a touchpad on it, which I use pretty exclusively with my left.

*shrugs*

Go fig.

I'm sure Angie didn't even make that intention; it was most likely an unconscious aesthetic decision.

Great comic, though! I'm loving how the coloring is becoming a lot more solid and varied. Excellent job!

I feel the need to add. . .At my moms work a lot of her co-workers use their mouse on the left side at the moment to avoid carpul tunnel. He is just being ergo. :)

Kinda thought of it on a whim when she said: "This opens up so many possibilities..."

I'm a lefty wear my watch (stupidly really, but too late to change now) on my left, because was taught that was "correct" even though it aint for lefties. I use a right handed mouse on the right-side. I've never thought "god this is weird I'd rather have it on the other side" I just use it like everyone else, likewise I don't switch my knife and fork round but if I only have one I use my left, natch.
