My friends think its weird i use my fork in my left hand (im left handed, not that weird) but with the prongs down. I'm the only lefty in my family and the only one who eats with his left hand and only one with prongs down, not sure why I do it this way. Note: I live in the USA. A German exchange at my school also uses a fork the way I do and said most people he knows does it that way too. Just curious how do you Fork?
