    17 Things People With Terrible Handwriting Are Tired Of Hearing

    No, I can't read it either.

    1. "Has it always been that bad?"

    Channel 4 / Via

    Yes. Yes it has.

    2. "How did you manage at school?"

    Showtime / Via

    Not great. Made it a bit tricky, un-fucking-surprisingly.

    3. "Can you actually read that?"


    YES! Most of the time. Well, sometimes. I get the gist of it.

    4. "What does that say?"

    Walt Disney Pictures / Via

    Something about chickens. Or possibly some sort of vegetable. Honestly, I'm not sure.

    5. "Could you write that again?"

    IFC / Via

    6. "It looks like a spider's fallen in ink and crawled across the page."

    TLC / Via

    Great joke. It's not like the word 'spidery' is always used to describe writing anyway.

    7. "Have you tried this solution? It's really effective."

    CBS / Via

    Years ago, but I've pretty much given up now.

    8. "You should be a doctor with that handwriting!"


    You really don't want me giving you medical advice.

    9. "You know, it's supposed to be a sign of intelligence."

    FOX / Via

    So is being hairy, allegedly. Maybe it's not true.

    10. "Are you bad at sport as well?"

    BBC / Via

    Come on, that's not related. Though, actually, I am terrible at sport. But I'm sure it's unrelated.

    11. "Are you dyslexic?"

    Disney / Via

    No, my fingers just don't work properly."

    12. "Have you tried writing in cursive?"

    NBC / Via

    It's not better, honest.

    13. "Have you tried writing in non-cursive?"

    Channel 4 / Via

    It doesn't seem to work.

    14. "Are you just writing in block capitals?"

    Columbia Pictures / Via


    15. "Can you really write your signature like that?"

    Yes, it's a scrawl that in no way represents words, but is the same every time. A flawless solution.

    16. "My writing used to look like that when I was a kid."

    OXYGEN / Via

    So did mine. Still does.

    17. "How do you manage?"


    Computers. It's 2014.
