I shouldn't be surprised

I was doing some research on BT.  I was a bit surprised to find the background of the CEO of OpenReach is in Marketing. I was not surprised when I discovered the background of the CEO of BT is in ... marketing.

Re: I shouldn't be surprised

When watching someone write left-handed it just doesn't seem 'right'. To me it looks cumbersome and awkward but, obviously, it is done with the same ease as a right-handed person.
I have a friend who is left-handed yet played tennis right-handedly as well as some other activities. He could also write both left and right-handed although he took longer when writing right-hand.
In fact, in many ways he was ambidextrous.
