这个世界对左撇子太不友好了!简直反人类

2018-09-27    来源:Insider    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

Left-handed people make up just 10 percent of the world's population— so it's no surprise that their needs are often forgotten in the design of everyday tools and objects.

世界上只有10%的人是左撇子,所以,猜也猜得到,很多日常用品的设计往往会忽视他们的需求。
 
Here are some obstacles that lefties face in a world designed for righties. If you're right-handed, you've probably never noticed them before.
下面是左撇子在这个专门为右撇子设计的生活中会遇到的一些阻碍。如果你是右撇子,你可能从来没有注意到这些问题。
 
1.The pens at the bank are always attached on the right side. 银行里的笔永远都是固定在桌子右边的。
When you have to pull the pen over to the left side, the cord always gets in the way of what you're trying to write.
当你要强行把笔拿到左边写的时候,那个线圈总是会挡道。。。(嗯可以想象)
 
2.The flap covering the zippers on pants blocks easy access from the left side. 拉链上那块布总是给左撇子造成麻烦。
It's weird to reach around with the left hand and zip up from the other side.
用左手绕过去拉拉链总是很奇怪。(明明可以很方便地拉开,非要从右边绕过去。。。)
 
3.Every time you swipe a credit card, it's on the right side of the machine. 每次刷信用卡都是在右边。
Reaching over and swiping the card downward in your left hand feels weird. Of course, switching it to the right hand usually feels even weirder.
对左撇子来说,非要把手伸到右边刷卡感觉好奇怪。当然啦,要是用右手肯定会觉得更不舒服!(好心疼)
 
4.Remember those desks with the chair attached? Definitely not made for lefties. 还记得那种跟椅子连在一起的桌子吗?绝对没有考虑过左撇子的感受(哭了简直)
In a classroom like these, lefties don't get the luxury of resting their elbows on anything.
坐在这种教室,左撇子都不能把手放在桌子上休息会儿。(休息?不存在的!太奢侈了!)
 
5.Car cup holders are almost never on the left. 车上放杯子的装置几乎永远都在右边。
Would you want to drink piping hot coffee with your non-dominant hand?
想来杯热乎乎的咖啡吗?(用右手?不了不了...)
 
6.This is what it looks like when a lefty tries to use right-handed scissors. 这就是左撇子的人用你们右撇子用的剪刀的样子。(第一眼还没反应过来哈哈哈)
Yeah, not comfortable.
呃...好像不大舒服。
 
7.Ever notice that a camera's most important buttons are always on the right? 你知道相机最重要的按钮永远都在右边吗?
Even capturing moments is tougher for left-handed people.
连拍照按个快门都那么难。(找到理由拒绝给女朋友拍照啦!)
 
不过话说回来,如果不是亲身经历,大部分人应该都没有注意到这些少数群体的需求,而对于他们来说,很多简单的事可能会因此变得困难。所以,要是设计师们在设计商品的时候能更多地考虑到这些少数群众的需求就更好啦!
