After graduating high school and like most teenagers, I had no idea what I wanted to do. When my cousin told me she was taking classes to be a court reporter, I thought that sounded interesting so I convinced my dad to finance my schooling.
Long story short – you know what’s coming next – after two years, I lost interest when I reached a plateau and couldn’t get to the next level. I always thought I’d go back, which is why I kept my machine. But as the years went by, technology advanced and my steno machine became a dinosaur.
Still, I kept my machine, probably more for sentimental reasons than for anything else. One day I decided it was time to let go of this old relic and sell it on eBay. The machine was still in very good condition, but I had no idea if anyone would be interested. So I was happy when it sold for over $50! And to think that I almost donated it to the thrift store. Better $50 in my pocket than in their cash register, don’t ya think?
