Unhappy My batteries

My batteries in my mouse are running low... it just popped up on the screen! And I haven't got any new ones, and where I live there aren't any shops, so I'll have to wait til monday to get some more! Just have to hope they last, otherwise i'll have to use the TAB key a bloody lot!

Good thinking! I forgot all about my old one - it's in the junk cupboard somewhere! I'll have to try find it.

Lol! On here the TAB key would be so cumbersome! Your TAB button would break after only a couple of posts! Especially if you wanted to Quote Somebody!
