I hope no is offended by this, but believe me it's memorable.

"Picture a guy driving around with his girlfriend in the passenger seat. He can reach over and easily slip his hand into his girlfriend's blouse." (because the buttonholes always go down the right side on a woman's shirt), and vice versa.

It is memorable for those of us who drive on the right (with vehicles with steering wheel on the left!). Not so much for UK, Australia and all of the other countries who drive on left with steering on right side!!

Ha, ha, well that's a picture. But you know even after all these years I always have to stop and pretend to button my shirt to remember! Thanks for this memorable reminder.

Did you know that button placement dates back to medieval times? The button of a man's cloak/cape was placed so that he could unbutton it with his left hand and draw his sword at the same time with his right hand. People who were left-handed were considered "of the devil." Women's buttons were placed the opposite direction because of nobility. Noble women often had another woman to dress them; since most were right handed the buttons were placed to allow the dressers to get their ladies dressed quickly. Where did I learn this? History of Fashion class (I couldn't believe such as class existed either!)
