Sounds like she just lucked in to the perfect opportunity to become ambidextrous.

I was sure you were gonna make a joke about women drivers but I'm glad you stayed classy.

I'm sure exos wife using her left hand is gonna feel just like an inexperienced woman driver trying to shift gears in a manual.

God damn. Been alone in my department the whole shift and the dude who was supposed to come in at 6 is looking like a no-show. Hope the morning crew are cool with coming in to a train wreck cause I ain't staying late.

Since I just had the discussion, I was wondering how MB felt about this:
Do you just call people when you know they are at work? And I mean just to talk a bit not because it's something important. Because I wouldn't do this and if I wanted to I would at least message beforehand and ask whether I can call without disturbing them. I mean sure, you should have your phone silent when at work but I still wouldn't want to risk the chance of distracting them unnecessarily.

I wouldn't do it. I mean, for one thing, the person's job might be at stake or even if he/she owned the business, it could get in the way of customers. Anyway, calling someone at work for something other than an emergency or family related seems a bit impolite.

It depends on the persons job and the relationship, but if you're calling someone just for a bit of chit-chat knowing they're at work, you're friggin clueless.

Yeah I have called people but again only for something specific, and I would always ask if they can talk, and apologise for calling them at work. It is definitely a form of rudeness. I'd extend this to calling people in the car. My stupid brother would do this all the time: people would call him and he'd just chat away to them on the phone while driving, while I'd be looking at the traffic lights and cringing, seeing my life flash before my eyes. Some people are, indeed, clueless.

Good to know I'm not alone in this.
The person I had the discussion with acted as if I was some kind of unfriendly weirdo to just politely ask not to call me like that unless it's an emergency.
