I'm with you, it's redundant. Also irrelevant, unless what you're
talking about has something to do with hands. Also cumbersome.

(I'll stop now.)

Does anyone else out there have a problem with saying

"...on the left hand side of...." (or right hand side; no matter)?

Whenever I encounter it I yank out the "hand." Once we get
beyond first grade, I think it's extraneous. However, I see it
everywhere.

Comments?
