(Fark)   Why are most people so lazy with their signature? They start the first letter out, and then just scribble after that, and it is not readable. You can't identify whose signature belongs to who. What is with all the scribblers?   (fark.com) divider line 254

I scribble and I don't care what you think.

I hope the death button picks you.

I use fine cursive no matter what I'm writing because I'm classy as f*ck.
 
2013-06-22 02:28:49 PM
The cool thing is (as I am told) that according to US Paper Law your signature is whatever you use as your signature. It doesn't matter about the letters or anything. I believe you could even do a stick figure.

My name is 14 letters long... I aint got time for all that
 
2013-06-22 02:30:04 PM
I don't think legibility was ever the point of those, really.

When I had to qualify an entire ship's company, 350 or so people, on three separate firearms, sign off on each qual for each weapon, sign off for a similar number of ribbons/medals for marksman/sharpshooter/expert, that's when my signature turned to an illegible scribble. Repeat every six months or so.

Mine depends on what I'm signing.  If it's an actual important document like a contract or something I use my nice signature.  If it's a credit card receipt for a box of nails and a bottle of Diet Coke at Home Depot I'll just scribble something that vaguely resembles my initials.  I still haven't quite worked out how to sign a capital cursive G.  Like, I know how you're SUPPOSED to do it, but I'm still working on a personalized signature version.
 
2013-06-22 02:36:02 PM
It's your identifying mark that counts.

/if you had to sign your name as often as me
//your nice beautiful signature would just be a scribble too
 
2013-06-22 02:38:57 PM
Because people whose jobs require them to sign stuff other then their own paycheck get sick of writing their own name multiple times a day.
 
2013-06-22 02:40:01 PM
My name has too many vertical letters (l's, i's, and p's) to just scrawl out a flat line

I swear you could, though. At this point, my signature sometimes is just pretty much this: A________________ with maybe a squiggle somewhere. Nobody ever cares.
 
2013-06-22 02:45:36 PM
When I was learning cursive, my teacher used public shaming for not doing letters right. I grew up hating cursive and I scribble my signature in protest.
 
2013-06-22 02:52:20 PM
My first and last name together is 15 letters long. Every day stuff, I sign my first initial and scrawl my last name. More official docs, I'll actually use nice cursive and shiat.
 
2013-06-22 02:54:43 PM
My scribble is unique, which is the farking point. When's the last time you signed anything without your name (printed or typed) also on the document?
 
2013-06-22 02:56:20 PM
Oh, and the absolute best signature I've seen was an old fark at a gun shop. His legal name was Snake, and he managed to get a small drawing of a rattlesnake accepted as his legal signature.

You know what confuses me?

My signature is always different.  It is the same basic structure, but there area always little variances within it.

If I ever get famous and start signing things, people are gonna have a hard time to determine if my stuff with my signature is real or not.  Like, I watch Pawn Stars, and the handwriting guy is like "Well, we see this loop over here isn't exactly the same as his normal signature".

What the hell!  Maybe he had an off day and it was a real signature.

Yeah, sometimes the points in my lowercase Rs are sharp, and sometimes it's more rounded. Sometimes I use a period after my first initial, sometimes not. And forget my Ys. I use a loop, straight line, and all sorts of different embellishments for them depending on if I'm in a hurry or not.
 
2013-06-22 03:00:06 PM
Well you're right, and I'm going to block print all 18 letters from now on.

Like one was some NASCAR guy or whatever signed a tire, and the guy determined it was fake because it was a little off.

WELL HE WAS SIGNING A TIRE.  Do you know how hard it is to sign a tire!?
 
2013-06-22 03:02:42 PM
I know what did it to me: enlisting in the Army. That first week you sign approximately a gazillion forms while getting yelled at to hurry up!

So you make a mark that resembles your old signature and haul thee some ass!

It's easier then you're Jewish and writing in Hebrew.

True, converting to Judaism and learning Hebrew would probably be a lot of work

I always notice Obama writes like that too... I am left-handed and do not write with my hand all upside down looking like that,
 
2013-06-22 03:24:43 PM
I sign hundreds of cheques and other documents a month, it's too time consuming to sign neatly.

Why?


The constant stain on you hand/wrist, smeared letters, spiraled notebooks and having to either turn paper at a 30 degree angle and write diagonally or use the claw to be able to write, right handed desks where your writing arm has to hover constantly make it a wholly unpleasant experience

Three-ring binders

Wire-bound composition notebooks

And for me, being required to use a fountain pen in penmanship class. Smeared ink (which ends up on the side of a lefty's hand) and teachers who didn't make any allowances for left-handers as to the neatness of their work.
 
2013-06-22 03:28:05 PM
I figured out in late middle school/early high school that the more illegible your signature, the more "official" it looks.

At that point, I actively endeavored to make mine as messy as possible.

I agree right handed desks suck

I have a very consistent signature--consistently ugly.

My boss is also left-handed which is nice cause no one yells at me for having papers upside down in all our clip boards
