I love my father...but I'm going to break his caps-lock key!

My father is 75 years oold.  He 'pecks' at the keyboard when he types on his computer and even a simple sentence takes him a VERY long time to type.  To assist himself and make things a bit 'faster' he has taken to using the CAPSLOCK key -- all the time!

He just cc'ed me on an email he sent my cousins in Colorado.  The email was about 1 1/2 full pages - all in caps.  My eyes hurt from reading it.

I love my father....but I seriously am going to break caps-lock on his computer one of these days.

Capslock does not bother me at all.

Oh - I agree.  That's why I only want to break the key....not the whole computer.
Another thing in the plus column for him...he doesn't Forward junk email (he hates forwards as much as I do)..

Lol! 

I think it's great he is on the computer and doing email, too. My 81 yr old father has a FB account that he will get on and post Happy Birthday messages to the grandkids. I love it. I also communicate with him through yahoo IM regularly.
