Sorry, I don't type. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I can remember being so humiliated in typing class as a Freshman in high school. My classmates didn't seem to be having the same trouble as me. I sat in front of that clunky looking apparatus and I thought it was ugly and distasteful. Why on earth would I ever want to learn to type? My nails were long and my fingers were longer than most. I would go to hit the key and my nail would break or my fingers would get tangled up between the keys and it hurt. Really, I just didn't get it.
Look at this thing...
Can you even imagine? My teacher was a wonderful person and she worked with me to finally take a C in the class. Luckily my grade point average was still very high or that C would have kept me out of cheer- leading. Cheer-leading at that time was the center of my life. My mouth was made for it!
Thank goodness I was born a salesperson. I was h-e*-* bent to never have to type.
I would preface each and every job interview with...Sorry, I don't type.
One company did hire me for the front desk even though I proclaimed my "Sorry, I don't type" by telling me there was only occasional light typing involved.
After the owner of the company submitted a couple of very short letters to be typed up and was still waiting for it three hours later. He came to me and said, "just give me what you have." I did. He looked at me, shook his head, and walked away. I know there must have been 5-10 blatant mistakes...we didn't even have white out yet.
Low and behold, he offered me a sales position with his company...no more typing. This has been how I have lived my life. Sorry, I don't type. I always had an assistant or department that would handle that for me. My assistant and favorite daughter announced to me yesterday that she took a free typing test on Google and was typing 73 words a minute with like no mistakes...wow.
