"Poll question: Are you worst at typing than you were 10 years ago?"


  

          

i have noticed i definitely am. my job requires a lot of proofreading so i have always paid a lot of attention to this. lately i have so many typos in emails, texts and posts. a whole word missing, for some reason adding an s or ed where it makes no sense.

i even miss a lot of typos when i see posts. when i go back to them i will sometimes find them and im surprised how i missed them the first time.

Poll result (9 votes)
yes (2 votes)Vote
no (7 votes)Vote

It feels so foreign to actually hand write something now. Usually its just some hastily scribbled note at most. I can't imagine writing a whole letter or paper by hand.

With all the time I spend typing on a keyboard or my phone, I almost never have to write on paper any more. If I need to fill out a form or write a note I can barely form the letters. It's like my handwriting muscles have atrophied.

My struggle. When I review notes from work meetings, I am left befuddled by how lazy my hand can be. Makes me sad 'cause I received lots of compliments for my dope penmanship in K-12.

just playing
but yeah, my typos are at an all time high.
partially to this wireless keyboard i use, and partially due to my over reliance on auto correcting software tools.
plus, i never look at the screen as i type, always at the keyboard. i have a mental block.

im just proofreading as an extra service. the customer provides all the copy, i just gotta make sure i dont delete anything lol

if i catch something then theyre always happy i caught it. if i dont, its on them, especially once they sign off. unless i generate the problem.

with that said, when it comes to my actual work i will reread things plenty of times and look up anything im unsure about.

i used to be so careful with my emails and judge folks for typos. nope now im constantly typing thnak you and such. i usually catch it before i hit send but some typos do escape.

Took over 30 years, but at some point I've really learned the entire keyboard. I can find almost every letter and symbol without looking or even thinking about it.

My spelling has gotten worse tho.

I'm just as good at typing, if not better.

Mavis Beacon taught me, back in the 90s, and I've been Speedy Gonzales ever since.
