Typewriters - literally just me

This quote was added by localbisexual
Have you ever stopped to think about computers? I think that we are very lucky nowadays to have computers. Writing has existed for ages, but a hundred years ago, stories were written with typewriters. Could you imagine using a typewriter? I can't. I rely too much on the backspace button.

I feel the need to mention that we used to have an electric typewriter that had a backspace key on it :P

I don't have to imagine using a typewriter. We learned how to type with typewriters in Highschool in the early nineties. The first few jobs I had that involved administrative tasks relied on typewriters both electronic and mechanical. The electronic typewriters usually had "correction tape" which erased your errors via the backspace key. By the way, I'm only 44 years old as of 2022.
