Oh they get better.

Actually, I think out of the 3 of us, only my sister has the obligatory cracker-ass-cracker name, but my brother and I are totally rocking the "OMFG" Catholic names.

I have also been told that I have Catholic handwriting. Evidently, being able to write legible cursive in the United States automatically means that one went to Catholic school. Which I did, but that's besides the point.

More people are asking for Donohue to adopt them, but PZ Myers says that considering /who/ they're asking to adopt them, and /what/ the Catholic church is known for (e.g. pedophilia), it's more than kinda creepy.

Suu speaks the truth. Actually, I've also noticed that you can get asked if you went to Catholic school if you can print legibly. Apparently Catholic school has the complete opposite effect as medical school.

My thing is, if I write something down, then the intent is for it to be read.

If I don't want to have it read by anyone but, I write it in bad rudimentary Latin, as a quick reminder.

It's funny though, people with sloppy writing have trouble making out what they themselves have written. It kinda defeats the purpose.

The two worst examples I have ever seen were from a Jewish medical scientist (my old boss when I was an administrative assistant) and an agnostic atheist (my most recent ex). I used to make fun of the ex mercilessly for the bad penmanship because she didn't sign my paycheck  :lulz:

As for my old boss, when in doubt I would bring it for the other scientist I worked for.... who happened to be an Italian-American Catholic and had very neat writing.

When I write in cursive is legible (I personally, don't think it's all that neat, per se, but apparently "neat" is if it can be read in a single look it seems). When I print... well, that depends on how fast i'm writing. :lol:

If I'm in a rush, my writing gets sloppy, but it's still legible. It does have a tendency to get smaller though. I don't know if that is due to wanting to go for minimal hand movement in a pinch or what. When I write, it's usually a weird combo of print and cursive, which gets pretty obvious if you observe my s, g and th, since none of those is consistent. When I write cursive, I might do it for a paragraph and then revert to half print.

Handwriting is also somewhat strenuous for me now. I've gotten too accustomed to typing.
