Kids React to Typewriters

YouTube Link

In this new Kids React video by the The Fine Bros, kids check out the ("antique," as one puts it) metal monstrosity that is a typewriter. What is its function? Well, "it types, and it prints at the same time." Are you old enough to have encountered a typewriter at your workplace, school or elsewhere? You'll get sympathy if so, because at least one of these kids "feels sad" for you. Via Tastefully Offensive.

You could only do one or two copies at a time...unless you had A DITTO MACHINE! Then you typed the ditto copy.
The smell of spirits lifted spirits in the classroom. Those kids don't know what they are missing.

Old enough -are you kidding? But at least by the time I went to college, I had an electric typewriter.

Honestly, when I was in high school, my Dad forbade me from taking typing. It was considered a "vocational" class. Dad was afraid if I learned to type, I'd have a "fallback" career as a secretary or even worse, in the typing pool. I realize those are archaic terms all around now. Dad would be laughing if he saw how I make my living now -typing all day long, using the hunt and peck method.

My kids were taught to touch type in the second grade.
