Why did I learn to use the typewriter in 1982?

This brought back many memories of my High School Typing Class. The first 6 weeks were spent learning the keyboard, setting up, etc. and then the next semester and a half were boring as hell repetition. I never achieved more than 60 wpm with 5 or less errors but I can say NOW that it was one of my best choices for a class.

I’ve had to use my typing skills in so many ways and they were very valuable while I was in the Army. Yes, having any kind of an office job was much more enjoyable than crawling around in the mud with a rifle, at least for me!

I still “type” on the computer keyboard the same way I learned “touch” typing way back in ‘67! I’m surprised my keyboards survive the pounding.
