What do you do the "wrong" way?

I still type with 4 (total) fingers and I don't care. I'm still faster than all the noobs.

    I put my belt on backwards... I guess. I have the buckle on the right side with the holes on the left.

    • doctuhjason

      I feel like that would cause me to do the rest of my day backwards as well.

    • xg549

      From your perspective, looking down at it? That's how I've always done belts... no one ever told me it was backwards...

      • the7egend

        You'd find out real quick if you join the military. Plus you have to line your buckle up with the seams in your pants and shirt.

      • GingerBreadMan
        +1

        The only way I learned that it was different is when a number of women tried to take my belt off and were confused. I didn't know about the military thing.

    • smackababy

      I DO THAT TOO I THOUGHT I WAS ALONE

    • ttubravesrock
      +1

      I don't wear belts anymore. I switched to suspenders (or just wearing pants that fit). but when you said you put your belt on backwards, the only way I can envision a belt being backwards is if you put the buckle through the loops. I didn't know there was a left and a right way with belts.

    Chopping an onion. I slice both ends off first.

    • Amulet
      +5

      Isn't that the right/best way, though? Cutting the ends off means the outer layers are free to be easily removed.

      • Cobbydaler
        +5

        Apparently you're only supposed to take a small amount (just the tendrils) off the root end. http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/how_to_chop_an_onion/

      • folkrav

        Actually, the "best" technique is this one. I'm extremely sensitive to onions and pretty much cried every time, but I don't since I adopted this technique.

        Plus, it's much easier in the long run, and a lot faster, cause the onion doesn't fall apart.

        • Xeno

          pretty much cried every time

          lik dis if u cry everytim

          Has anyone tried chewing gum while cutting onions? I've heard several times that is supposed to help.

    • imnotgoats

      I do this too - I didn't know it was considered wrong.

    I wear my watch on the wrong wrist. Since I'm right handed, I should have my watch on my left wrist. But, I'm a rebel or something, so I don't. (It also doesn't feel right)

    • oystein
      +7

      When I was six, I was told that lefties keep their watch on the right hand. I quickly decided 'that is stupid', so I kept my watch on the left hand.

    • xg549
      +5

      I don't wear a watch anymore, but when I did I wore it on my right hand. People told me that's weird because you should use your dominant hand to put the watch on and I'm like no I use more effort in the day to turn my hand and look at the watch than I do to put the watch on or off

    • Xeno
      +5

      Poop watch. Butt wiping.

    • racerxonclar
      +3

      YES! I'm not the only one that does that! My left hand is bloody useless, why would I look to it for anything? lol

    • the7egend
      +2

      This was mostly because Right-handers are the majority and you'd wear your watch on your left wrist so it would be easier to wind your watch, and it just stuck that way through-out time, but since automatic watches are more the norm (smart/digital watches too), you really shouldn't worry about which wist you wear your watch on. So you do you and everyone else can do themselves. You're not wrong.

    I like dry cereal. Milk is disgusting.

    • takai
      +4

      That sounds just so... wrong. But I don't judge.

      • Xeno
        +2

        I can do and like a little milk now (just enough to get it wet). But dry cereal is still king.

    • NstealthL
      +3

      I'm not opposed to having a glass of milk beside my cereal (I actually love doing this, especially if eating a cereal with chocolate), but I refuse to mix it in. Every couple years I'll try it again to see what the fuss is about, but then I stop myself and remember that I hate soggy cereal. I honestly don't get why people find this weird. I don't judge you if you don't butter your bread, don't judge me for milk-less cereal.

    • Teakay
      +3

      I haven't put milk in my cereal since a bad experience with those dried milk flakes that form around the inside of the cap. Now I never have to worry that my cereal will taste weird when I go to a new place and have to buy a different brand of milk! (I don't even like white milk, I never understood why I put it in my cereal anyway.)

      • idlethreat
        +2

        ... since a bad experience with those dried milk flakes that form around the inside of the cap

        WTF? Did they hop off the cap and gangbang you or something?

        • Teakay
          +1

          Not quite, I'm just a big baby and can't stand the texture of the flakes. Far more than I could handle fell into my cereal one time and I haven't put milk in my cereal since. :P

      • Xeno
        +2

        You make a good point. Different milk types and brands can drastically fuck with the taste of cereal.

    I'm a left hander, but every tennis racket and other sport equipment i hold in the right hand. Don't even know how to play with it in my left hand, just feels weird.

    • Caio

      I learned recently that handedness is not a rigid thing, but rather fluid, so you are not actually left-handed but mixed-handed:

      Cross-dominance or Mixed-handedness is the change of hand preference between tasks. This is common in the population with about a 30% prevalence.

    • ttubravesrock

      so you hold your sports equipment properly and write wrong?

    • folkrav

      Left-handed in hockey, and only in hockey. No idea why.

      The idea of being a guy and not wiping after peeing seems so gross. There HAS to be urine left on the tip.

    I peel bananas from the stem. I refuse to do it the "correct" way.

    • Xeno (edited 3 years ago)
      +2

      Yes, that's considered to be the normal way. The "smart" way is to keep the stem as a handle. It's supposed to be easier to peel from the top too. Not that I've ever studied this in depth...

    • FamousFellah
      +2

      That is the correct way. It provides a nice handle to pull on.

      I peel bananas the correct way ending at the stem

    When I take off my shoes I put the left shoe to the right of my right shoe.

    • cailihphiliac

      Why?

      • Matime
        +2

        Not too sure, feels comfortable to me, take my left shoe off - cross my feet then pull my right shoe off with my left foot.

        • cailihphiliac
          +1

          That makes sense. The way you worded it, I thought you take your shoes off then put them the wrong way round in the cupboard or wherever.

  • jenjen1352

    Open doors with my left hand, even though I'm right handed, including turning keys in their locks.

    • the7egend
      +1

      I do this too even though I'm right handed, but it's more for sanitary purposes, I do the dirty tasks with my left hand, because more than likely if I have an itch on my face, I'm going to use my right hand to scratch, and I don't want my hand i just opened a door with transplanting all that germ crap next to my eye. Shaking hands though is my downfall, I usually have to shake with my right, but I'll wash my hand soon after. It's a struggle.

      • jenjen1352
        +1

        I know what you mean. Although I don't use any particular hand in preference for doing dirty tasks, I avoid using that hand for anything clean until I can wash them.

  • sushmonster

    The typing thing for me for sure! I never understood what even was the point of having the "correct" and official way to type -- like I type faster all "wrong" than most people who do it like they're supposed to. I learned typing on my own by trial and error and like my style waaaaay better!

    • redalastor
      +2

      The point is that we never look at our keyboards while typing.

      • folkrav (edited 3 years ago)
        +3

        Oh but I really don't have the right typing technique, but I don't look at my keyboard ever, and am a pretty fast typist (90-95 WPM, 4-5% error rate according to this site). I know I definitely could be a lot faster and make a lot less mistakes with the right technique though!

        • redalastor
          +3

          Are all your fingers on the keyboard? Then it doesn't matter which technique you use.

      • sushmonster

        I never look at my keyboard either it's all muscle memory. :)

    I have an extreme problem opening packaging, particular food products. I destroy boxes that have perforated edges for ease of opening, obliterate bags of chips getting into them, and constantly open milk cartons on the wrong side despite the warnings that say "Open Other Side."

    I think cold days are the best days for ice cream.

    I refuse to get sandwiches toasted at subway.

    I keep going backwards technologically.
