[I wrote this at work, hence the tea break.]
It is a sad fact that I cannot type my own name correctly. It is also a sad fact that I am currently driving Mr Toad in a little car aimlessly around my keyboard whilst drinking tea, but that’s not why I can’t type. What happens is, my right typing hand is faster than both my brain and my left typing hand, and when I type my name I tumble over the letters. As proof, if I type my name 10 times: jacquleine jacquleine jacquleine Jacqueline jacquleine jacquleine Jacqueline jacqlueine Jacqueline jacquliene. That is remarkably consistent, and the autoword thing has capitalised the spellings I got right, which is 3 out of 10. Poor. Anyway, I have set up an auto-text shortcut in my work email which automatically types my signoff sentence. If I type rrr it changes to “Regards Jacqueline” and ttt becomes “Thanks Jacqueline”. Every time I do this I get a warm inner glow at outsmarting myself. Ah, the pain which comes with having a first name with 10 letters, one of which is a Q. I imagine people with names like Marguerite (my mother’s bridesmaid’s name, which in hindsight I was lucky to avoid) or Augustine would understand… your fingers are all over the keyboard as if trying to play whack-a-mole.
See, this is why I don’t tend to do this at work. Strange things come out of my head. Drive on, nothing to see here.
