So, I'm flipping through a paper catalog... I turn away for a moment, and when I go back to it, the first thing I do is grab my mouse so I can click to the next page.

The fact that the catalog was sitting on top of my keyboard probably didn't help, but still!

(...and why can't I cut & paste while I'm using a pen & paper?!)

You mean the term cut & paste didn't come from ink and paper? Hmmmmmmm.... ;)

No... "cut and paste" came from scissors & paper. ;) I shouldn't have to reach for scissors. hehe.

I am always trying to cut and paste when I am reading magazines, newspapers, etc. Either that or when I want to turn a page I think about right clicking and opening in a new window.

I've been stabbing away at a non-existent clutch pedal for a week in a rental car. ;)

I really need a grep function for hardcopy records and journals. Where is the command line when you need it?

The other day I was at a meeting and the client wanted to schedule a follow up in one week. I frantically looked for my Visor and when I remembered I'd left it in the truck I panicked.

...and there on my lap sat a perfectly good pad of paper holding up a perfectly sharpened pencil...

*doh*

Hmm.. well, often when I write something by hand I lift the pen and wait for auto-complete, but the word just doesn't seem to finish by itself :)

I wrote a letter to my dad the other day, and had to forcible restrain myself from writing in smilies... but at least I didn't try to click anything.

I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to hit ctrl-f to search through a book (a set of written, printed, or blank pages fastened along one side and encased between protective covers). It's scary to think that I once used a card catalog.

A few days ago the phone rang early in the morning while I was still sleeping. I answered it and it sounded like some sort of recorded message, I remember hearing the word politicians or something like that. I just hung up right away and laid back down. In my half asleep state I started getting really worried - maybe I shouldn't have answered/opened that phone call at all - maybe it was a virus!
