Because It’s Friday…

Because it’s Friday, I thought I’d pass on a nifty expression I found in today’s Globe and Mail business section. “Fat finger flub” means a mistake with a keyboard, and fits perfectly my style when I’m hurrying.

Also seems topical to those of us east of the banana belt, given how annoying it is to try to do things with gloves on. Now a “mitten mistake” would be something of a different order…

  1. I tried emailing someone from my blackberry with my mittens on yesterday. Can’t say it was very successful. I had to pull my mitts off and fix the typos created by my fingers hitting more than one key at a time…

    Oh well. I figured that would be easier than reading a book while waiting for the streetcar (try turning the pages with mittens on) but apparently not.

  2. The problem here in the “banana belt” is all-season golf hand injuries that make it hard to keyboard all year round.

    Sorry, just too good to resist.

  3. LOL … and that is exactly why I don’t bother with a cell phone! When you have more mitten weather than non-mitten weather, imagine trying to use a cell-phone when you’re most likely to need it, such as when you’re car freezes to a stop on the freeway! How many times should you accidentally phone Papua New Guinea before you give up?
