Touch screens..Am I the only one???

 Am I the only one that now touches EVERYTHING trying to make it work?

I slap my pc screen all the time. My parents have an older cell..I'm always tapping the screen wondering what is wrong with their phone? I had to go pick up meds at the pharmacy today..I paid with a card..I kept tapping the screen to try and put my info in. The clerk very nicely said ..you have to use the keys..then did an eyeroll.

I do it to my tv, car, ATM, etc...

Are we becoming so lazy? Or maybe this illness just makes me crazy?

Please tell me I'm not alone..

 I've never had a touch screen phone, I don't even know how to use one, lol.

lol I do that too from time to time, but my computer is touch screen, my phone is touch screen, even the registers at my job are touch screen. So of course an order phone or a computer without touch screen gets attacked by me from time to time lol

 I actually can't stand my new Galaxy phone. It would be so much easier to just type out what I want to say. I spend so much time trying to correct the wrong letters it puts up. Maybe my fingers are just too fat?

 Anyway, no I don't have a touch screen problem. You should look into a 12 step program for that :P

lol no I don't try to touch screen everything, like my computer for example. I don't really like touch screen options for computers so I would never buy one. Also I do have a touch screen cell phone but I have a slide out keyboard, I sort of hate the touch screen on my phone. I actually used to work for Sprint, then I worked for Alltel until they became Verizon so I have handled a lot of phones, so I am used to phones not having touch screens. I have never tried it with the tv, or car either I didn't even know those were options...I am not really rich to buy those sort of things.

Now ATMs, and where you have to swipe your card I always assume they are touch screen, when they aren't I get so shocked because it is so often now.
