According to this story, it's not uncommon:
The story says:
"Apparently, ?left-right confusion,? as neuroscientists appropriately call
the phenomenon, is quite common....
"It appears, however, to be linked to brain lateralization ? the idea that
the right and left halves of the brain?s cerebral cortex control different
functions. The more asymmetric that lateralization, the more vulnerable we
may be to left-right confusion....

Gwynne: I've often wondered where left-handedness comes into it. Are
our brains totally reversed compared to right-handers? And if not, one
side of the brain must be doing double duty, so what's the other half
up
