Did I Really Type That?

By
Education & Training with Hoffacker Associates LLC

Alright. who put the comma next to the period on the keyboard? It's so easy to mistake one for the other. what with them looking so much alike, and being next to each other, Can change the whole meaning of things. and make what I said not what I meant, Put one on the left side of the keyboard. and the other where it is now, Maybe one on the top row. and the other where it is now. or close to the current position, It's amazing how many times I get them mixed up when typing. and I end up punctuating my text incorrectly,

I hate how they are positioned together especially when you type in ,com rather than .com and after to retype the complete website in again.

Mona, the commas were because I mistook them for a period, :)

For me it is not the location of the keys but the inability of my fingers to push the right one at the right time. That is whay I make so many mistakes! Enjoy your day!

Some of us really do have a hard time seeing the difference between commas and periods when the print is small.

Have a great day!

haha I am laughing at this, Steve, because just yesterday I put some periods between a bunch of listing numbers on a search.  I couldn't understand at first why it wasn't working until I looked really closely. I had my resolution cranked up really high so the periods were so hard to see.  I agree with you. I make mistakes with those little buggers all the time.

Steve this made me chuckle too. I bought a new laptop and for some strange reason, it types sssss like crazy. I have to keep going back and taking s's out of my writing. I have tried resetting the speed but that just slowed everything else down and the s kept racing along.
