I believe there are two kinds of mice for computers, those made by Logitech and those you should leave where you find them.
“Optical mice” that use a mechanical ball? in my area of responsibility
if you don’t want it smashed you’d better hide it really well or keep it locked in a safe.
I personally use a Trackman wheel mouse, the sadly discontinued
"wired" kind, it never needs batteries.
frustrations caused by mice are easily fixed… by introducing the cheap troublesome mouse to another innovation… a trash bin.
Of course it’s also fun to swing it over your head like a Bolo and cast it into the nearest concrete wall… WEAR SAFETY GLASSES the pieces really fly around…
