Things that Irritate Me

This keyboard. I don't know if my fingers shrank since I got this new computer a year ago, but it seems like my stretch isn't quite what it used to be and I'm not hitting my letters the way I should. Quite annoying, especially when I need to hit the same key several times to get what I want out of it. I'm thinking about getting a new keyboard, especially since the letters are now worn off the most used keys. I don't notice it so much, but when my son was here a few days ago to try once more to do his taxes, he couldn't find a letter. I had to tell him K was next to J. L is completely gone. In fact looking at the keyboard just now, most of the letters are gone. Good thing I don't hunt and peck or I would be lost too. Another thing that irritates me is spelling. I hate when words elude me and I just can't get them spelled right no matter what I do and need to resort to dictionary dot com. Then I find out I've been spelling it phonetically and that spelling is way off the mark. Why can't words just be spelled the way they sound? Another thing that irritates me is waiting. Any kind of waiting. I don't have much in the way of patience, so waiting for something is not easy for me to do. When I want to do something, I want to do it right then. If I have to wait on someone, I'm counting the minutes until they arrive - clock watching is a bad habit of mine. It's even worse when the time comes and goes and the person hasn't shown up. Boredom irritates me. When what I want to do irritates me instead of bringing about some kind of satisfaction, I find myself getting angry, and that leads to extreme boredom because nothing is interesting then and I don't know how to find the one thing that will put a spark back in my life. Right now I need a spark in my life. Yes, I'm bored and I'm irritated. I hope this doesn't last because I want some sense of satisfaction in what I'm doing. So between the frustration with the keyboard and my appalling spelling, and the boredom, I think I'm just going to find something else that hopefully will put a spark back in my life and give me a sense of satisfaction. You might not find my spelling appalling, but that's because I work at taming this keyboard into submission. Thanks for reading. I will return.

I have trouble typing on my new Windows Keyboard that I had to replace for the same reason, The original keyboard, before all the characters wore off fit better to my hands and easier to type on. Now I am stuck with this new one I bought and actually I want a better keyboard myself. Here is a list of keyboards that I think you will like to take a look at:

We are all fraught with some negative things those we try to connive in our life but have to do these...I have some of those also still we have to go with this issues as if we get everything pleasurable in our lives there would be a little value of the pleasure in our life ... So we can watch those issues in other ways also and that might create some major differences

As time goes by it seems that spelling is no longer my thing @just4him Some of my keys don't work (very annoying) but that I can deal with for now. We are using a spell check program that makes life a bit easier here!

Very nice post, boredom ceases soon and the spark is back to inspire you again. Yes, spelling sometimes is irritating.Sometimes I want to pull out all the letters in the keyboard. What I did, I downloaded Grammarly and let it check everything and everything goes fine.

I have never once typed anything that did not need correcting. There is always something wrong. I type well but still that happens. Waiting irritates me too but as far as boredom goes I have realised that no one can change it for me but myself.

What irritates me? My daughter and I share a laptop. Sometimes she eats when she's using and she east sticky food! Certain letters on my keyboard get stuck. Like the letter “E”. You never know how often you use a letter when you're typing until that key gets stuck and you have to strike it several times until it shows up! GRRRRRR …!!!

I don't think they did either. Waiting is the worst for me. As soon as the time comes for someone to be here, I'm looking at my watch or the clock. I don't understand lateness. It happens so seldom with me. I always leave early enough that no matter what problem could arise, I won't be affected by it. Here it would be boats and trains that hold up traffic. I hate being bored as well. I usually start a new story when that happens, but when I'm bored with the computer, that isn't an option.
