      Stop hitting me so hard? Seriously, everyone says I type too loud, so I imagine my keyboard probably doesn't like me too much...

      I keep telling him I'm not in the mood, I have a key ache -- but he keeps pecking on me, pecking on me, pecking on me.  Why can't he just leave me alone for a while!  I wish his fingers would fall off!

      I think mine would definitely say "Clean me or I quit!!"  LoL...I have a black laptop---therefore with white letters on black keys---and the amount of oil from my fingers (and especially the bottom of my wrists when they lay on the space beneath that has no keys) has made the keyboard give off a lovely sheen---albeit from a less than ideal source, lmao.

    I don't know what my keyboard would say about me, but I know what it would say to me, namely "Can you tell that bloody cat of yours to stop dribbling on me?  My microcircuits have nearly shorted several times now and if I catch fire, it's all your fault."  lol lol

    (One of our cats likes to jump on my lap while I'm typing.  And he has a tendency to dribble a lot.)

      If only my keyboard could talk,
      I can imagine what it would say
      as my wrist lay in laziness
      while I am here typing away.

      Your a good person my dear friend.
      I can see your passion with type
      as you quietly try to encourage
      without any fanfare or hype.

      ...But please, I have to emphasize
      don't eat anymore crackers or food
      which clutters areas under my keys.
      Really, don't you think that is rude.

      So yes, good job my dear typist,
      but please I ask you to be clean
      because food must be in your mouth
      .......For me, I prefer it not be seen.

      My old keyboard would say "can't you get that cigarette ash in the damn ashtray". He is now in the loft, probably enjoying life a little more. My new keyboard is flexible, and can be washed with water, so I'm not sure what problem he has with me - I think that he is ok with me right now.

      If my keyboard could say anything it would be to stop making so many mistakes. It would say stop writing things and then backspacing everything you just wrote to just write the same thing again - believe me I do it - it would say stop assuming i am going to spell everything correctly, and it would also tell me to give it a rest. ;P been at it a while haha

      mine would ask.. whats the 'fu' button for? why do you use it, whats it do? ohhh thats what it for.. right..
      whats the turbo button for? i thought you typed fast enough already.. can you give me a slow motion key?

      why did you put a third enter key on me when i have two perfectly good ones already. WHY DID YOU SPLIT MY KEYS??? we were comfy next to each other.. STOP HITTING ME! i'm working as fast as i can.. i don't like you no more!
      i quit! get a new keyboard!

      currently typing on new keybaord as my old one litterally gave up moments before joining this site, so.. i had to post, now i just gotta fix my ergonomical keybaord that yes, has a turbo button (i haven't figured what tis for yet but will fin dout one day haha) and 3 enter keys... hmmm weird!
      the keys are so stiff i have to hit it hard to get them to move, but then i got a call from the keyboard police. be careful with these things, they're ganging up on us.. for every human that has a computer.. there's a damn keybord, and occasionally a spare sitting waiting to call the keyboard police to report us!

        Your keyboard is most likely modded for gaming. And cheating at games at that. A turbo button basically can be set to click X number of times per second. For games like Half-Life that have weapons in which a gun fires as fast as you click, this function proves useful.
