Illegible handwriting always gets its share of ‘un’wanted attention and if you have bad handwriting then you know what I am talking about.
Here are some questions that every person with bad handwriting is simply tired of hearing.
Did you write this?
No. My cat wrote it for me.
Is that an ‘e’ or an ‘o’?
It’s a ‘u’!!
Can you read what you have written?
Of course, I can. I mean if I try hard, and squint a little.
How did your examiner manage to correct your paper?
Jeez! That even I don’t know!
Why do you write like that?
Yeah, I do that on purpose. I really love writing badly.
Why don’t you try cursive writing?
But it is in cursive…. Nevermind!
Are you sure you are right handed?
I am definitely not ambidextrous.
Did you try writing with a fountain pen?
Ah! Been there done that!
Did you ever want to be a doctor?
Bad handwriting = Intelligence. Still? Seriously?
Next time anybody comments on your handwriting tell them that the keyboard was invented for a reason.
