New York City vs. San Francisco Round 6: Filling out online forms

December 10, 2008 at 10:35 am (new york city, random, san francisco)

I used to type ‘C’ when entering my address online and California would be selected from the list of states.  And then I could tab on to the next thing I had to enter.

Now I have to type ‘N’ 6 times.  Six times.  And I have to double check that NY was selected because I’ve seen cases where things are screwy and six doesn’t get me to NY.  Or maybe it’s just that there’s a lot of room for error when you have to type things 6 times and I often get it wrong.

So this is a big enough issue for me to write about.  But probably not big enough of an issue that I’ll move to Nebraska.  Or Alabama.

NYC: 2
SF: 4

    at least you don’t have to hit “m” 1 or 3 times. MA MD ME vs. maine, maryland, massachusetts. weird thing is, i never noticed when i lived in maine. i must have been buying fewer things online back then.

    Maybe you can move to Maryland.

    The little things that you pick up and write about are funny. I never even knew you could continue to the next letter in an online dropdown list by repeatedly pressing the same letter. I always just used arrow keys after that. See? Your pet peeve taught me something today.

    California misses you too,
