Your Hometown Country Connection


Hey Tri-State! I wanted to first thank everyone for all the support over the last few years. Working at WAYZ has been an awesome experience and it is mainly because of you. A little about me? Well, I am from Reading, Pa and went to York College to earn my degree in Speech Communication. I am in a sorority, Delta Phi Epsilon, and my sisters have had a huge impact on my life. I have great friends and an even better family. My younger brother David is my best friend and I am so blessed to have such a great sibling. I rescued a 3 legged cat, named Uno, who makes me smile everyday. I have always been a very upbeat, annoying girl who always has a smile on her face. Lastly, I couldn’t imagine working so closely with anyone other than Tiny. Tiny has become one of my greatest friends and I am so glad we got paired up to try and make your mornings a little brighter!  I have always loved radio and microphones and I am so lucky that now I get paid to talk on one. It’s fantastic! Feel free to email me at anytime with requests, stories…anything! Thanks again for making my job the best job in the world.

Our dear Katy is leaving us to start a new adventure in her life, please â€‹click HERE to hear Katy's Announcement!

Disadvantages of Being Left Handed

by Katy posted Jul 10 2013 9:09AM
My boyfriend is left-handed and I know he agrees with this list.  Here are 8 annoying things about being left-handed, from 

 1. It's hard to use ballpoint pens. Because we write left to right, a left-hander has to PUSH a ballpoint pen across the page. So the tip of the pen digs into the paper. In the Arab countries, it's the right-handers who suffer.

 2. You get ink all over your hand. Again, the left-to-right thing. Right-handers can keep their hand out of the way of what they're writing. But lefties have to drag their hands right over the fresh ink on the page, and they get ink all over the side of their hand.

 3. The cup holder in your car is on the right. Driving isn't a big deal, because you hold the wheel with both hands. But shifting and the ignition are on the right. And you have to handle your drinks with your right hand, because the cup holder is in the center console.

 4. Lefties DIE sooner. That's what studies show. A lot of that is due to industrial and driving accidents. So basically, lefties are dying young because machines are designed for right-handers.

 5. Measuring cups show you the metric side. When you pick up a measuring cup by the handle, a right-hander gets to see the standard measurements. A leftie has to translate the metric measurements, or twist the thing all the way around.

 6. Can openers can only be operated by the right hand. Although, what's so hard about twisting a handle with your wrong hand? But apparently this bugs the crap out of lefties.

 7. Credit card machines attach the pens on the right. And the cord is never long enough to reach around to the other side.

 8. The number pad is always on the right side of a computer keyboard. So you have to learn to use it with your wrong hand, or REACH all the way across your body to do it the way that's comfortable to you.

 Anything else you can add to this list??

Lefty hubby
My hubby is a lefty. When we eat out I have to sit on his right side so we don't bump elbows. Our baby's changing station has her head facing left and its hard for him to change her because she is backwards.

Lefty trouble
Scissors I think is the worst thing to deal with as being a lefty. It is very hard to use a pair of right handed scissors! Trying to use a zipper I think is another battle to overcome. You adapt to it after awhile, but I still catch myself trying to use my left hand from time to time. Another disadvantage is playing cards. you have to either fan the cards out another way or read the cards upside down. When playing a game you have to slam the cards down, you have to be very fast with trying to see the card pile before your opponent because your hand is normally in the way! Also with being a lefty, you normally adapt to being a righty in some things, like the number pad, the mouse, or you find different ways of completing things a righty would have no issue doing!

Those stupid desks....
I have to write in a right handed desk every day for 8 hours a day. Teachers are so inconsiderate towards a request for a left handed desk because they are just to lazy!
