The Art of Handwriting

7 09 2021

Today my sellers, the title agent and myself were sitting around a table for settlement discussing signatures. The title agent had a tattoo of her fathers signature. It was a beautiful tattoo and a beautiful signature. My mother had a beautiful signature as well, perfect cursive. My sellers were of the same era as my Mother and had great signatures. The title agent and myself were around the same age-ish and although we both new cursive our signatures were less legible. However we both could read and write cursive. The title agent told a story about when her 17 year old neice went to the bank to open a checking account and printed her name on the signature line. The bank wouldn’t take it. They said she needed to sign not print. To which she responded she didn’t know how.

Handwriting is not longer taught in schools. So the younger generations can’t read or write it. It got me thinking about my own skills. Although I was taught cursive in school, other than my signature I don’t use it. I prefer to print or in most cases type. For a fun test I took out a lined notepad and wrote out the alphabet.

As you can see I got some letters wrong and for the life of me I couldn’t even remember how to begin writing a capital G. So how about you? Can you beat the test and get all the letters correct? No cheating, write your abc’s with out a guide. Let me know how you did.
