I have some sloppy handwriting and it is only legible when I take my time. In fact if it was up to me, I would type everything I do on my computer. It would be pretty challenging though. I admit I get jealous when I see people some neat handwriting. However, when I am working and someone decides that they want to show off there pretty handwriting on some forms that I have to read its another story. Sure I admire it, but we when we have to input the information in our computers, we have to be able to read it right.
When I get customers writing in cursive, it gives me a headache. People actually expect you to make out what they have written. Handwriting is like snowflakes, no two are the same. Yet i'm expected to be a expert in writing.
"Umm, is that a N or an R".
"Is my handwriting that bad"?
"No its good, I just couldn't tell the difference, because you wrote it in cursive you idiot"
I think just about every application we have, just about every payment slip, or money transfer form has two of the most obvious words (isn't it obvious that everyone's handwriting can't be read, no matter how neat it is.)
How hard can it be? Don't tell me that people's brains are on auto-pilot when they are writing? C'mon its in both parties interests if everyone prints. That way not only we as clerks don't have to keep asking a customer if this letter is a S or the number 8, but it will also save the customer a trip, and some gas. You have no idea how many times I had to ask this one young woman if I spelled a word correctly. Her handwriting was just too bubbly. Please, you don't have to be fancy.
