A few weeks ago I posted the following photo on
I asked the following question:
"Did you take typing and stenography
in high school?"
This photo has been seen by almost 50,000 people and has over 3,500 comments.
I learned to type in HIGH SCHOOL on a typewriter similar to this one...
That's right, a manual one. NOT electric.
AND I also took stenography classes...
Taking typing classes was such a GREAT investment for me.
My parents gave me a typewriter as my high school graduation gift
and when I went away to college, I dragged that HEAVY electric
typewriter with me and proceeded to charge $1.00 per page to type papers
for students who didn't know HOW to type.
AND up until 1 1/2 years ago, I worked from home as a transcriptionist.
I never really used my stenography skills, except to take notes while in college,
but we had a lot of fun in class pretending to be secretaries.
So how about YOU...
"Did you take a typing or stenography class in high school?"
Let me know YOUR answer here in the comments.
