Yesterday, I was on a teleconference call and we were talking about offline marketing techniques. One technique we discussed was addressing envelopes by hand to increase the odds the mail piece get opened.
It occurred to me that my handwriting these days generally sucks. No surprise, I suppose, because I so rarely hand write anything any more. So, I picked up a pen and started writing the alphabet on my notepad. Each time through, I stumbled at ‘r’. I wrote ‘u’, instead. So, I guess 40 years of Qs – which are almost always following by Us – and now I’m incapable of writing my alphabet properly unless I slow down to a crawl. Weird.
So, too, I have these quirks on the keyboard. When I go to send an email to my business coach, whose name is Tom and whose email address is email@example.com (*note: I did this just now trying to type his email address here), I almost always type tome@…before I recognize my mistake. The e just comes flying out my fingers – automatically following the m. Weird.
Another one of these, for me, is not being able to type the word female properly without typo correction. (* and yes, I did this just now, too) I always type femail. Yeah…me…Miss Spelling Snob. I suppose I know where that one comes from, but still… Weird.
What about you? What weird things do your fingers do?
becasue <—– BECAUSE
Ooohh…that's a good one, too.
One of the weirdest thing that my fingers do is my words are all shortcut like from txt which is actually must be text and bck which is actually be back.
I always spell Joseph, Jospeh, ALWAYS, I even spelled it wrong in this sentence and had to correct it. I have the same problem with Michael, I usually hack out Micheal – wait….now which one is actually correct? DOH!
That's funny, Christa – Lexi and I were just talking about misspelling Michael last night! She does it, too.
My fingers appear to be as directionally dyslexic as I am – I’m not sure I’ve ever been able to type South without first typing Sough.
It's so great to know I'm not alone in this! LOL South…now that's an interesting one…
I have also the same problem
yah me too. I don’t do hand write and i really feel tired of hand writing..
