Every day they look at me, they tell me I'm wrong. And I don't know why.
For me, it just feels like it's right.
Most think it's the opposite, but I've always gone the other way.
A crazy man once told me I'm wearing it like the devil.
Or maybe it's just that by chance I taught myself not to be right.
I'm just a disappointment when I'm dressed.

Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    $\begingroup$ Sounds more like a poem of an angsty goth than a riddle to me! $\endgroup$ – Ken Y-N Apr 19 '16 at 1:31

    $\begingroup$ It's an exageration of something I remembered today that used to happen to me. Not necessarly negative (hence why it's exagerated to the limit), but a "hum.. okay then" kind of thing. The angsty goth that should rage against the machine is a method of delivery... think of it as a presentation... it's not a poem, it's a whiny weirdo ^^ (Don't take this comment as an hint, it's not) $\endgroup$ – Oak Apr 19 '16 at 1:47

You wear your watch on your right wrist which is a sign that you are left-handed.

tell me I'm wrong -> not right

feels like it's right -> left handed

went the other way -> right instead of left

taught myself to not be right -> left handed

doing wrong -> not right

  • $\begingroup$ Precisely. Albeit not being left-handed, I wear watches on the right pulse rather than on the left $\endgroup$ – Oak Apr 19 '16 at 14:58
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah I used to do that too haha $\endgroup$ – phenxd Apr 19 '16 at 15:00

    $\begingroup$ Also, lefthandedness used to be considered a sign of the devil. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Apr 19 '16 at 15:30

    $\begingroup$ Some would call it sinister, even. $\endgroup$ – charfellow Apr 19 '16 at 19:39
