Yes, it's true, Keyboards must HATE writers, or perhaps, my keyboard just hates me. Writers are constantly all over them, poking them,smashing them when the computer freezes up (like it's the keyboards fault somehow), and even spilling food on them in order to multi-task as we write an idea while eating breakfast.
Maybe that last one is just me though.
Really I am super hard on my keyboard and I have proof.
1.When I tip my keyboard upside down, crumbs from a multitude of breakfast toasts tumble out, I suspect that isn't good for the keyboards overall health.
2. My keys are literally wearing off. Primarily the "E", "R", "S", and "A" on my PC and when you add in the worn keys from my laptop there is also the "T" and "N".
3.I let my hubby use the computer and keyboard and he plunks at the keys one at a time, bringing his finger down at speed from a height of about 2 feet, just to make sure the computer registers what it is he's trying to type.
Those, I believe are the reasons behind the hatred, but what about you, how do you abuse your keyboard?
