This not only bugged me, but it bugged me that it bugged me! I felt like I was getting a little too detail-orientated, and too in-control of my Sims world. Now, I don't have to feel like that (well, with this little problem, anyway) again!
DUpheal, from the looks of the code that I had to alter it seems the pen may have been cloned from the scalpel which may be why this error happened in the first place: MAXIS got lazy and didn't bother to check if they entered the right number.
I think Sims must all be ambidextrose (spelling?) cos I know they do other stuff right-handed.
Thanks, but why were there two pens? I mean, at school, I use the same pen for EVEYTHING. Well, until it dies, anyway.
There aren't two pens. This is the same pen as the one Sims use for homework or the newspaper crossword. The thing it replaces is a surgical knife that Sims should only use for the medical career reward. Due to bad coding though they used it for the diary as well.
What makes me laugh is how they use a pen for homework, yet rub out mistakes with an invisible eraser that normally sits on the tip of a pencil! Oh well. Yeah, I've noticed the lefty thing too - when I first saw it I thought my sim was left-handed (like me! :D), until I saw him doing his homework. Weird... okay, I'm ambi too, but I still write with my left, no matter what it is
