Default Bad Penmanship!

Bad penmanship sucks!

I have to process a lot of applications and enrollments at my job, and I hate when people hand write their paperwork but have sloppy handwriting. Makes it so hard to read.

If you know your penmanship is bad, type that shit out!

That is all

I agree, we use to take a great pride in how we wrote! Now with computers and fax machines as well as email, we hardly practice our penmanship any more. I make sure to drop cards and letters to loved ones and I still take notes and jot things down to keep practice of my penmanship now my grammar that is another subject lol

i have terrible writing. it's really bad. I have to blame computers since I type everything. For important documents I always try to type it, if that is not possible, then I spend a lot of time writing it out so it's legible.

I don't even know cursive writing. My signed name looks almost identical to my printed name.

I mean I don't mind if someone has bad penmanship, but if you're turning in some sort of paperwork for anything, I would think you would either take the time to make your writing legible or if it's not possible, type it out! I feel it's common courtesy.

SJ would be the ideal paperwork filler-outer

My cursive is a mix of print and actual cursive. lol. But I almost never write in cursive on paperwork that I need to submit somewhere.

That's different. They're not submitting stuff to be entered...at least not to me. Haha. But I've processed paperwork by plenty of doctors here at work and if I can't read their writing, I'll call and ask what the hell they wrote. I'll also point out that their writing wasn't legible.

Being a doctor doesn't give you an excuse to have bad penmanship imo.

As far as I've seen, ALL doctor's have bad penmanship, yet Pharmicists and nurses understand what they write. Go figure.

It's more shorthand than actual writing out full words and sentences. But I rarely see doctors write out anything anymore. All the doctors I've gone to in the past 6-7 years or so update charts and fill prescriptions electronically.

What about when they write in their patient's charts. Is that ALL shorthand as well?

I've seen my own chart and my mom's and more often than not, it's all shorthand. But even then, the penmanship is bad. If my doctor was writing something and it wasn't legible to me, I'd ask them to re-write it.

I understand your frustration.
When I'm left contracts to type up, it chaps my hide when I can't make up what's written.
Then I have to stop and call for clarification..."Don't yell at me cuz your handwritting is crappy!"

I can read pretty bad penmanship as well. I was just ranting about the few times when it's SO bad that I can't which is rare...but today someone sent in their application from Turkey and that was a big 'ol mess of letters.

Eh. Sucks for me to try to decipher it, but it sucks more for them if it ends up being wrong and their Visas aren't processed with the correct information.

I would hand write name tags for our volunteers and one of them thought that my handwriting was a printer font

Yay for good penmanship!
