Default Re: Why do computer technicians have bad handwriting?

I'm not saying that everybody who works on computers has bad handwriting, just the ones that I have met.

i find most computer techs just can't be bothered to write legibly even though they're capable of doing it. It's the laziness inside us that makes us write that way.

I agree. I get prescriptions on a monthly basis and my doctor has handwriting only a mother could love. The people at the pharmacy always try to take my name from the prescription, and they look at it for about five seconds, and then ask me what my last name is. Don't even get me started on my signature LOL.

Sometimes I jot down notes really fast and I go back to them and I can't even read my own handwriting.

I have very inconsistent handwriting. When I write everything is lowercase capital regular (by this I mean it looks like what you seen on this screen) except for a, e, n, and r. Those I write in capital letters but in the same font. I do this because my a's look like o's, my n's look like r's, and my e's look like c's. When I changed I noticed increased speed when reading my notes lol. Unfortunately, I've stopped taking many notes. I never read them much. Paying attention in class is all that it takes for me.

My handwriting is pretty good, my manager really likes that when he's trying to sort out a situation on a customer's computer and I'm not there.
