I'm so old, I was really annoyed when computers started having mice. I'm a very fast typist, and I felt like every time I had to take my fingers off the keyboard to click and drag something, it slowed me down.

Back in the aerly 90s, I was doing computer tech/help desk contract work. One of my jobs was rolling out Windows 3.1 machines to a law firm. The secretaries had just finally gotten used to WordPerfect on DOS, and 10% of our help desk calls were complaints about having to use the mouse. One woman called and said she needed a different mouse, because the buttons were too small. I went down to her office, wondering about the size of fingers that would find mouse buttons too small, and found the mouse on the floor under her desk. She had taken off her shoe to feel the buttons better, because she was using it like a sewing machine foot pedal.
