On summer breaks from college I returned home and worked as an office Temp travelling to fill in at various businesses for short periods of time. It was a challenge to step into an office without knowing the people or routine, only to just about get it figured out when I would have to move on to another place. Three longer term positions were at Blue Cross/Blue Shield, the Maxwell House Coffee Plant, and Avis Rent-A-Car at the airport. All the jobs required some typing, so I was grateful to have that skill.
On a sad note, Mother's old machine was stolen by a drifter. She and Daddy had taken him in and set him up in my grandmother's older vacant home, feeling they were doing a good deed finding odd jobs for him. The drifter soon vanished taking several items, including the typewriter. That old model had served my mother well for her own college papers, letters, forms, and church programs and lessons. In her later years she was able to adapt to a computer fairly easily because of her excellent typing skills.
Do you have typing or shorthand memories?
