* On the cooking competition show ''Series/CutthroatKitchen'', situational southpaw conditions occasionally pop up. In most cases, right-hand-dominant chefs will be forced to cook left-handed for the duration of a challenge. This results from reduced finger mobility on the right hand or, in more undesirable cases, being forbidden from using the right hand at all. (This also applies to left-hand-dominant chefs being forced to go right-handed.)

* TiedupOnThePhone: One of the inevitable results of old-style telephone receivers, where the handset was permanently attached to the receiver by a coiled cord, was how quickly the connecting cord ceased to be a neatly organised smooth coil. It would inevitably tangle, snag, knot, loop back on itself, and tended to somehow double over on itself, until the connecting wire between handset and receiver was effectively half its original length. Anyone picking up the handset to such a phone would drag the whole thing up off its table and find it swinging in the air. Left-handed users soon found that the arrangement favoured right-handed people - both in the direction of coiling, and in the way the headset was meant to be returned to its rest with the connecting wire on the right-hand side. Any old-style phone regularly used by left-handed people would unravel its coils twice as fast (the natural tendency being for a left-hander to return the handset to the rest with the coil-connected end on the ''left''.) Any household with both left and right handed people would discover their shared phone suffered from Garden Hose Syndrome - it became an utter tangled mess very quickly.

* Downplayed in Creator/HarryTurtledove's ''Tales of the Fox'' series: the main character is left-handed, and he remarks that it makes it easier to get around enemy shields for a couple of reasons.
