By mistake or intentionally your maid servant or wife spilled the coffee brought for you. What is your immediate reaction? You know that it will not spoil the system, coz it is prepared as water proof. But the immediate action of yours may be described.

One morning my oldest was on the computer before school. After she got on the bus, my poor computer started screaming! I ran into the room and turned it off to inspect it. Liquid came pouring out of my rather (ahem) expensive keyboard. I was not happy, and made my daughter replace the keyboard (albeit with a less expensive one) out of her allowance. I was more upset with the fact that she spilled the liquid on the keyboard and did not tell me than the fact the accident happened. In my opinion that was rude, and I told her so. Tried to clean the keyboard but by the time I discovered it the damage had been done. The soft drink had messed with the connections inside(sad sigh).

I have spilled on my keyboard, and it made typing weird, but quickly cleared up. But it was me fault, my maid servant had the day off. LOL!

My immediate reaction would be to clean it up as fast as possible, but I would still wander how I could get all of the wetness out. I would worry the keyboard wouldn't dry quick enough for me to start using it again immediately.

If I had a maid I would not be trying to earn dollars on mylot :D and to answer your question I would lose it if someone spilt anything on the key board.

This discussion came to my notice now. I will not react under such cirumstances immediately but I will be passing remarks at a later time.

Well, I myself have twice spilled drinks into my keyboard, it did ruin the keyboard! Since I got mad and ranted and raved at myself about it, especially the second time when I know better! I imagine I would be slightly upset about it.

Hi prasad, I am using computers from past 16 years. I never ever take food or drinks (including water) while I am on computer desk.
