Which do you use more pencil or pen?
28 Jan 07
A pencil is useful in most cases. Everyone makes mistakes. You could be the best writer in the entire world and you would still have to use the eraser. It's much easier (and prettier on the paper) to correct your mistakes by getting rid of it than to use the pen and have to scratch out the mistake. Now, if you were trying to be official, and you were just signing/filling out forms, then a pen would be a excellent idea. However, in most other cases, using a pen can be a pain. For example, last year in school, I had to do weekly tests with my English teacher and he INSISTED that we use a pen or get points off. There would, of course, be problems. The pen would run out of ink, the ink would perhaps spill on your hands, you name the problems. Now, I didn't mind the tests themselves, but trying to do them in nothing but pen was the absolute worst part of them. With the pencil, however, if your pencil breaks, you can sharpen it, and if you get marks on your skin, it's easier to get off than the pen. Now, a pen is handy at times, but mostly, a pencil is just more reliable. happy mylot day.
