Do you run into problems when eating Asian food because you can't quite figure out how to use chopsticks? If you're prone to flicking rice everywhere or shooting sushi across restaurants, stop disturbing other patrons and create your own pair of westernized chopsticks.

Instead of whining about things not working out, join the make it yourself or DIY movement and be proactive coming up with every day solutions.
