    Typewriter? I vaguely remember those.

    This is wrong. A Plugger doesn’t have an electric typewriter, because the manual one still works.

    Hey,if you’re a real plugger,electric is as technologically advanced as you get!

    Believe it or not, despite the fact we have computers with keyboards now, they still exist.

    You’re a Plugger if you CAN resort to a manual typewriter.

    Electric? Still have my mom’s Smith Corona Portable, that she used in college in 1930. Never saw the need for an electric.

    you’re a plugger if your only means of putting words down on paper is NOT a computer and printer

    Lots of pluggers are trying to keep up. If you see White-out on their screen, they’re not quite up to speed!

    My old CPA had an electric typewriter in his office for an IRS form that required certain entries in RED. He’d print the form on his laser printer, stick it in the typewriter and add the two numbers in RED.

    I’m a plugger then. I learned how to type on a old manual. Though my school had the electric Brothers one with the typeball.
    Thing is, unlike computers, the only spell check there is. Is that book called a ‘dictionary’, AND the bottle of white-out.

    I learned to type on the old wood burning typewriters that took five lbs of pressure on each key, and we LIKED it, as the old codgers say. Well, it beat handwriting everything, but I still remember going home after 8 hours of typing every day at my first job, with my back, neck and arms aching. Nobody heard of ergonomics in 1958.

    Recently I’ve heard kids complaining that it’s impossible to type on an old Underwood manual, because they’re used to touch typing. My kid asked where the spell check was and gave him a dictionary and showed him how to use the correction tape.

    It took me a long time to go from a manual to an electric typewriter because that durned machine made more mistakes than I did. Now I don’t even own one. The last one I owned was just for addressing envelopes for personal letters. My grandson doesn’t even know what a typewriter is although he’s a fast typist.

    You KNOW you are a Plugger if you still actually HAVE both an electric typewrite AND a manual typewriter in your possession – and still know how to use both of them!
