When I was hired for this job, I had to take a typing test. That was a hundred and fifty years ago (or eighteen, whichever is less). I'd never even touched a computer keyboard, never heard of a spell check, and never had any of my errors auto-corrected. I was pretty good on a conventional electric typewriter, though.
That was then. This is a whole new century, and I'm not such a wonderful typist any more. I've gone all soft in the head with the instant editing and such. I don't have to be good, because none of my mistakes becomes a blot on the permanent record. And I don't have to be very fast, because nobody's watching me.
Lately, though, I'm Mister Typing Guy again, after all these years. I spent my whole Monday pounding the keyboard, creating some documents from scratch and modifying others from the templates on the CD-ROM that showed up in the mail today. I'm typing Purchase Agreements and Operating Agreements and Certificates of Authority and Articles of Organization.
Actually, I typed only one of each of the above documents, plus a few others. I'm not sure why I made them all plurals, except maybe because one of the more memorable sentences I typed was this one: When used herein, the singular shall include the plural, the plural the singular, and use of any gender shall be applicable to all genders.
In a different lifetime, I could have been a lawyer, because that makes perfect sense to me.
