Anyone who is left-handed understands the minor struggles of ink rubbing off on your hand when you write, trying to cut with right-handed scissors and righties using your dominant hand as a topic of conversation. However, being left-handed is a fun quirk nonetheless, and finding fellow lefties always sparks a second of camaraderie. To celebrate National Left Handers Day, we put together five instances on reality television in which someone uses their left hand to start a fight. Enjoy!

She walked around the house like she was stalking some prey, blowdryer in left hand, and waited outside a room until Johnny came out like a straight up lioness.
