I have large hands with long and wide fingers (ladies). While this admittedly makes me both amazing and awesome at the same time (yep, that's right, amazome), it can make typing a frustrating and tiresome experience when they decide not to keep up with the pace of my brain. Which is all the time. I made several typing errors in those first two sentences. And four in that one just now telling you about the typing errors (thankfully I use a combination of "my eyes" and "spellchecker" to spot these things).
What I have come to notice is that there is a trend. My fingers follow set patterns which I do not want them to and yet I have no real control over this. It always seems to be the same words, day in, day out, that they obstinately refuse to spell properly. I mean, come on, digits! I'm making you type these alphabetic combinations on a daily basis, both at work and at home. You should be picking these things up by now. I need some sort of special class for the slower learning fingers that really just refuse to co-operate.
Maybe they're dyslexic. Can you have dyslexic fingers? I mean, the brain knows all the words and all the orders what the lettery bits go in. So why aren't the fingers paying attention?
So here are some of the common offenders:-
particualry - particularly (I didn't even manage to type that right when I was really trying, too)
theer - there
deicde - decide
juts - just
cheesr - cheers
Anything with an apostrophe - has a semi-colon instead (i.e. can;t instead of can't)
Most galling of all, though? This one:-
Badly - Baldy
Yes, I've chosen an inter-nom-de-plume that I cant even type properly.
Anyone fancy paying for me to go on a typing course?
