Be Careful When You Hire A Woman Who Hasn’t Worked in 20 Years
Nancy is a whiz on the keyboard. Actually faster in high school on the manual typewriter than she was the electric. We surmise it was because she kept hesitating when the electric would automatically return the carriage. I bet there were times her hand waved over the top of the electric typewriter having missed the carriage return handle that wasn’t there.
She could do 100+ words per minute with no errors.
She still can.
When she is deep into an email, there is a steady clickety-clickety-clickety as her fingers fly over the keyboard.
She’s gotten used to not having a carriage return.
Maybe she just got mad that the screen couldn’t keep up with her.
