Talking to a friend via messenger. She commented on how quick I type
I’m on an iPad and since i was a typist I use all my fingers and I’m much quicker than someone on a phone using two fingers
When I was back at school. My headmaster, being very progressive, decided we should all learn to type.
He told us we would all need to know how to type in the future.
So that’s where I learnt to type.
He was very clever. And although I hated typing class. It has come in very useful over my life.
I’m pretty sure we learnt on something like these black ones. They were ancient even back then!
You had to really hit those keys hard and once you got any speed up. The little arms would cross and get stuck
Here’s one that’s a little more modern lol
My first job was in a bank. Where the typing skills came into good use. I even had to use one of those recorders where the boss dictates
Into it and I had to listen and type what he said!
And I have no idea why. But everytime I had to change the ribbon, I happen to be wearing white that day!
Omg. Red and black ink all over me
We laughed when we remembered those days. This younger generation will never know the pain of changing that blessed ribbon,
Or having to set margins or even the pain of typing legal documents that could not have not even one correction on it.
And no magic spell check for us to put the word in.
did you learn to type at school?
What are your memories like?
See ya. xxx
