Particularly loved the last three.

Shoot - in our typing class we had ONE electric typewriter that we had to take turns using - the rest of the time we were using manuals. I kind of still miss all the banging :)
Good stuff again. 37 words a minute...12 if you count errors.
Oh yeah, I remember typing class very well, and it's come back to haunt me today. Remember the "home keys"?...a s d f j k l ; Try typing that on the tiny little keyboard that comes on an iPhone!
I like the first one! So true!
I withdraw my former comment. I like 'em all!
ELECTRIC typewriters? What kind of rich academy was that? We had the manual version. And the pencil-shaped erasers with a little brush on the end. Or, if you were lucky enough to find it, the correction tape slivers that came in a plastic box.
In the Summer school typing class I was the only male. My father the newspaper editor thought it would help my career. The jury is still out
For the same reason I was compelled to take not only typing but shorthand. Typing helped my career, shorthand was forgotten soon after high school. So it goes.
