    two students reported that their grandfathers had beaten them as children for eating with their left hands. Those grandfathers believe it was a sign of the devil. They learned to eat right handed when their grandfathers were around and their parents did not protect them.

    That said, it is clear that serving left handed people could "violate the person’s sincerely held religious beliefs."

    I don't know what consciousness is or how it works, but I like it.

    •  My mother in first grade had her left hand (5+ / 0-)

      tied to her desk to force her to learn to write with her right hand.

      Grandma realized something was wrong and paid an unannounced visit to the classroom. Per legend, conversation went something like this:

      Grandma (points): "Did you do that?"
      Teacher: "Yes, she has ..."
      Grandma (right cross)
      Teacher (thud)

      And 15 minutes later mom had a new teacher.

      I'm on a mission! Testing the new site rules.
