Do you have difficulty in reading other people's handwriting?

November 8, 2007 6:51am CST
Hi!All I like beautiful and clean handwriting. I hate terrible handwriting because it brings me inconvenience. One time, I went to see an old doctor because I had a bad cold. The doctor gave me a prescription. I could not tell the handwriting but I thought maybe the doctor intended to do that to protect his unique prescription. When I gave it to the chemical's assistant, he didn't know some words. He asked me to ask the doctor about the words. I wondered what went wrong. Later, I got it about that nobody could know the prescription but his close nurse and got the medicine from the doctor's clinic.

Yes, and sometimes it is hard to read the handwriting of others.The hand writing is need to be neat and organized. Handwriting is important for taking notes and writing organized report. Both speed and legibility are essential for good letters, so it’s in your best interest to learn to write neatly and in a way that doesn’t fatigue your hand quickly. But neat handwriting also makes you look and feel good specially to others! Also the handwriting need to see the reader of that handwriting letter is easy to read.

It is always difficult to read if it's not clearly written. I am teaching in a college and have encountered many of those. Not all students have clear writing. I usually check them last because I have to read many times first before I understand their answer. I also include as instruction in my test papers . Please write your answers clearly.

yes I definately do. I find doctors handwriting very difficult to read. Its a wonder prescriptions aren't messed up more than they are! I had to file a claim for seeing a doctor in Mexico while I was on vacation. I couldn't read his name

I am looking at paperwork a lot during a project at my job and the handwriting on many forms is just absolutely horrible. I can not believe so many people write so poorly and are very inconsistent. I think the schools should have a handwriting class to improve people's handwriting or everything should just be typed out. I think people do not write as much now because of technology and people being able to type or text message. I am sure part of it is because doctors and other important occupations are doing it to make it difficult to forge their signature.
