You know what grinds my gears?(technology related)

People who can't type. And I don't mean those who simply can't type as fast as me (105wpm) but those who just "hen peck at the keyboard.

For example: My boss today was showing me how to log some of the billing information at my work. So she pulls up Microsoft word and starts pecking away. 10 seconds goes by and the letters "B I L L" are only completed out of the word billing. I mean, I could understand if someone is a janitor or a mailman or a fireman and typing isn't remotely necessary to said profession but how can one work at an office and not know how to type?

Maybe more people should have played this

Its not as if keyboards just sprung up out of nowhere and no one in the work force had time to learn how to use these "Dangfangled keyamajigs." Typewriters have been out forever and the personal computer has been around for over 20 years. There should be no excuse for me, a simple computer nerd, should be able to type 4 times faster a secretary or anyone who works within a office.

I just don't understand how people can get by in the world by just "hen pecking" the keyboard and not knowing how to even type at a decent speed. Am I the only one who gets irked by this or am I just out of my mind?
