    It’s just because you’re getting old.

    I run a shipping dock. I'm there long before the regular guard shows up so I call trucks up early so we can load them and get them going before all the late arrivals clog the system up. Most trucks have trailer numbers from one to 4 digits. However, the shipping tariff is so favorable on intermodal containers, and trucks are so scarce as they all went to Florida and didn't come out, we ship a lot of containers. We call the drivers up by trailer number. When I'm entering it into the system to start the bill of lading process, I've gotten to where I cut and paste the 10 digit container numbers. I'm dyslexic too and have trouble with the printed numbers 6, 8 and 9 as they all look alike to me when printed. Handwritten isn't an issue.

    Do this to some extent too. Back in school a teacher said I was thinking ahead of my writing, somewhat common. Seems like for me it's usually the first letter of the next word though. And then there's the "teh". for that we can thank teh original inventors of the typewriter. They designed the keys to be unnatural to make people type a bit slower and not jam the works.

    I always wondered why the E, I, A, etc letters that are used the most aren't under our fingers??
    I highly doubt J or K is used more than E, I, A???

    I got stuck with a typewriter with no lettering in HS :(
    It was 1/2 & 1/2 and they all got grabbed before I got there :(
    I took typing freshman year because it was 100% girls :D

    And our typing teacher was hot! We jammed those keys quite a bit so she'd bend over and free them. Good days back then.

    Too be honest, I have no clue what mine looked like?? I only remember a few of my teachers.
    I also worked 40 hours a week in HS, so I had a lot on my mind.
    That was a very long time ago, and I didn't store that data in my brain, so she probably wasn't that hot.
    I do remember my Spanish teacher was a hot super model looking blond.
    Another teacher was a Pat Benatar look alike.
    My honors science teacher hated all white people and especially me because I was a big mouth punk.

    Maybe a a little weird too....LOL. But really I have a lot of the same issues. B's and D's in lower case. and my right from left sometimes. The reading the same line over and over. I don't like reading a lot either unless it is a shop manual or something technical. My spelling is failing also. I used to be an ace. Looked forward to spelling b's. Now the red squiggly Line tells me when I mess up. Funny though some words just get the line even if spelled correctly, so you second guess and google it. Getting old is slowly becoming evident.
