Veering off slightly.....


Men, do you dress "right" or "left"? Girls...if you answer this, were suspicious.


Women.....panties or panty hose first?

If you are ambidextrous, then that is a completely different matter. But most of the time, people are either left handed or right handed. You would wear the watch on your non-dominant hand, because it makes no sense to wear it on the hand you write with. You would have to stop what you're doing, turn your wrist to view the time. Where as, wearing it on the non-dominant hand, you can continue writing and there's less movement on the non-dominant arm which means less wear and tear of your watch.

I think for spite, I will hereby button from the top and bottom, alternating as I go along.
With the invention of smart watches, a lot of people are wearing the wrist watch again. It's just more convenient than having to dig through your pocket to grab your phone when you could just take a quick peek at your wrist for the time.

And not only that, it's still quite fashionable to wear a watch, unless you're talking about a mickey mouse watch.

I think I understand what you're saying. I always put my left arm in the shirt first, followed by the right. And left leg in the pants first followed by the right. I'm completely left-sided dominant. I throw, write, drive, play guitar, and punch with my left hand. Kick with the left foot.

So, if I have this right, using your cell phone as a watch is so much better than a wristwatch because you have to drag it out of your pocket, turn it so you can see it, and then you can tell the time, which of course is so much more efficient than just turning your wrist over so you can see what time it is.

So, basically, what we've done is to go back to pocket watches! Sorry, but if I have to go through all that just to see what time it is, I am going to carry an actual pocket watch, with an engraved gold case, a big heavy chain, and a big fob with the insignia of my lodge or fraternal organization.

And as far as that goes, I have not had trouble getting the buttons on my shirt to line up since I was about 4 years old. An adult that has trouble with this has more significant issues.

This thread does seem like something Archie Bunker would make an issue of.

It does not matter what order or direction you button your shirt buttons in, so long as your shirt ends up properly buttoned in the end.

And the watch (if you wear one) goes on the non-dominant wrist. (But I prefer bracelets)

It sure is. I thought it was amusing that there was a "man's way" of buttoning shirts, maybe I just didn't get the humor in the DJs saying it or if they were mocking their younger "junior DJ".

I love the responses though and highlighting the ridiculousness of my question.

Thanks all!

I'd say not. I'd say most watches are designed to be worn on the left wrist because the position of the winding stem makes it more accessibly to the right hand when the watch is on the left.


Lefties, get outraged!
