Just a small pet peeve.

Does anyone else cringe when they see someone using an LPDA/PDA with the writing end of a pen?

I swear, I want to run over and slap it out of their hands. Drives me insane.

Yes. I've never seen it being done, but I've had to clean off the ink many times.

I use pens on LPDAs, but I use the end side or the ink side with a cap on. It's way easier to use KBD than using the number pad.
But I do hate getting LPDAs with ink dots or little stab marks.

We have LPDAs with a stylus attached but they always go missing.

One of my GSTLs does this, and it drives me nuts! I realize it's easier than using the number pad (like texting on a phone's number pad without T9), but it can't be good for the screen. And the ink spots set off my OCD.

I was nice and invested in the DS styluses for the team to use on the LPDAs. We had 8 packs on clearance for 88 cents and so I bought them all.
Because I'm nice. And because I was sick of pen marks on them. But, they work well.
