PEOPLE WHO BATTER KEYBOARDS
Previous | 12 | Next

There are a number of people in my office, generally the over 50s, but I don't want to ageise, who HAMMER THEIR KEYBOARDS INTO DUST.
I genuinely think they believe that unless they PUNCH THE LIVING FVCK out of every keystroke, the letters will fall off the screen afterwards.

Perhaps they were raised to enter data onto punched tape.

In fact, I should be given gardening leave immediately, before I stab someone to death with a biro.

This is one reason I like working from home or in a office with as few people as possible. The only solution is earphones.

Yeah, sadly i'm busy trying to get a "team" of 6 people to fix the same mistake they made last week. They need to do the same thing again to mend it.
We're currently 2 days in to "just uncomment the fscking stored procedure". I may punch somebody shortly.

Thing is, I don't think the guys in my office deliberately bash the keyboard to annoy me but just that I am a fussy person. I like working in quiet environments.

MrsREV types like she's on a 1920s typewriter. Drives me insane. She even manages to be noisy typing on the iPad :lol:

Not only do they type like they're using a 1920s typewriter, but they have non-office-issue mice with RATCHETY SCROLL WHEELS.

Can we add to this people who don't use all available fingers when they type.

I have a colleague who uses all fingers on their right hand, and only one finger on the other hand.

It looks spannerish. :?

I only use 2 fingers on each hand (and my thumbs for the space bar :oops:

Iya !

I didn't realise we worked together. :oops:

Actually I'm a lefty, so it's the other way round.

My own keyboard annoys me @ work. Going to buy a nice quiet one myself.

I am sending you some stickers for your colleagues that read: 'My keyboard is a bitch, & I spanked it!'

I bet I can still type faster than 95% of everyone out there.

Are you claiming to be 95% as good as a professional typist Seb?

Lectures are like this. Sometimes you can barely hear the lecturer, people are hammering their keyboards (on a laptop ffs!) and their tablets to smithereens.

During the important bits it sounds like Ground War on Black Ops 2 with 20 guys useing silenced PDW's :lol:

How about not having a sig at all?

I work in a mobile phone shop.

Old people (especially) do feel the need to press any button MEGA hard. Often it would appear they are trying to force their finger through the phone. Why, i just dont know. I spend a lot of my life saying "there's no need to press so hard, just until it clicks". All to no avail though.
