(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 29

mephisto6: MBK: I am responsible for the popularity of cats on Fark.

The pickle incident was actually a cucumber.

You doing anything with slatted chair?


I worked in the slatted chair factory.  I sabotaged one chair to be SLIGHTLY more open than the other slated chairs.  JUST TO TRAP MY PRAY.

I didn't realize my pray would have been a Farker, but there you have it.

Also, I was the one that introduced DoZ to her boyfriend.

farkingismybusiness: When I was in college one of my friends would borrow another friend's credit card to run to the liquor store. He would sign for it with some nonsense doodle or something. Then he started doing pentagrams. Soon the credit card company noticed their signatures weren't matching and they contacted him about it.


YouSirAreAMaroon: Arachnophobe: Relevant CSB.

This reminds me of something that happened when I was working for Gamestop, shortly before it went all evil. Had a guy sign a credit card receipt by drawing what amounted to a spiral. I asked him if I could see his driver's license, because come on. He gets all offended and demands to see the manager. I explain the situation, manager looks at the signature, grabs a pen and paper and draws the guy's signature almost exactly. "That's why we need to see your license, sir."

/the moral of the story is 'don't get all huffy when people question if your signature is really your signature when your signature is essentially a spirograph'.

I recently was asked for ID at Best Buy because the girl couldn't read the signature on the back of my credit card but I managed to convince her not to worry about it. She just handed me the receipt and I didn't even have to sign anything. WTF


Each year my mom gives my wife and I prepaid credit cards.  When I use them, I write "I like cheese" on the signature line.

My signature used to be readable and nice.  Then after all the leases I've signed, job applications, loan applications, pages signed for HR once getting hired, insurance forms, etc...it has de-evolved into a scribble.  Right now my right hand is broken, so my signature is crap and when I see porn I debate about fapping (I want to, but hand is broken so it's going to hurt).  On the brightside, I have broken,burned and sprained my right hand and arm so many times (this is my 15th broken bone) that I'm really good at typing and writing left handed.

50% of Fark profitss go to fund the WBC, just to make them protest more funerals, just to make more Fark greenlits, just to generate more revenue.

Fark TV was a government conspiracy to see how unfunny people can be and still have people defend it.

I taunted the Dynamite Monkey, but nothing happened.

Bathia_Mapes: Mazzic518: tuffsnake: When you're left handed you learn young to hate writing by hand

Why?

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.


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

CatherineM: 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.


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!?

MissFeasance: 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.


A capitol cursive g looks like a duck

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.
