One of the stupid mistakes I made was not taking it.
Obviously I had no idea how important typing would be.

Thinking about it, it was probably full of hot babes so that's another fuckup...

This is probably for us older guys, I have no idea what the fuck goes on now...

Yup. I ditched the ten-key bullshit as soon as I was out of class but I get by OK. If I need more than 55-60 words per minute, I'll find someone with tits.

It's bizarre, back then it was assumed that only secretaries need to type.

Which brings up another point... do "secretaries" exist now or are they all "assistants"?

Once the teacher didnt show up and I took the class over and ended up fucking this tall girl with a cute name. I used to be a hot shit, I don't know what happened to my life.

Tall girls float my boat.
I don't know why.

No I didn't and wish I would have, but too late to worry about it now. I graduated in 81 and back then they had some guy come in and do a presentation on computers and how great of a career it would be. They were the size of refrigerators and had big reals on them. The guys working on them had white lab coats and black rimmed glasses. We all thought no way did we want to have a geek job like that. We all walked out of that laughing at the one guy who wanted to go into computers. He went on and ended up with a pretty good job, clean always inside in the ac. Us smart guys went into automotive fields or construction and did ok but would have been better off if we would have went into computers back then.

I’m 29, and took it in Jr High. I also took a computer class in high school, but it went a little further than typing. Some computer nerds downloaded games to the computers, so we typically finished our work quickly and then played games.

That is just outstanding!
I graduated in '78 and never heard of a computer.
I took a few courses (on cards) in college.
I wouldn't take COBOL 'cause I saw the guys taking it had to carry around a box full of cards.
It looked like too much to type and those cards weren't cheap in the school book store!
