An obsession with the Ten Key
Once you learn to use a ten-key printing calculator, a pocket calculator will never be good enough...
Certainly, you probably believe my statement is an exaggeration at best, a total fabrication at worst.
You might just be wrong about that.
What is a 10 key calculator?
For anyone used to a regular pocket calculator, a ten-key calculator is often a mysterious piece of junk that ignores the equals sign when you're adding and subracting numbers. If it won't add when you enter 6+2=, what good is it? you ask—and probably not in a polite tone of voice, one might add.
But you know, the ten-key calculator isn't really supposed to do that. You're wrong, the calculator's right, and that's the end of it. You scream Ahhh! and throw it across the room.
Please don't do that.
With a little patience and time, you can learn to love the quirks of a ten-key printing calclulator. Are you ready?
