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

Bathia_Mapes: Mazzic518: tuffsnake: When you're left handed you learn young to hate writing by handWhy?Three-ring bindersWire-bound composition notebooksAnd 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.

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.
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.
