jeezifonly Posted September 22, 2021 Share Posted September 22, 2021 Signatures. I want to ask about yours. Not your fragrance, not your best mixed drink, or even a move in bed… The thing you do with a pen on paper. **No mention of your name, please!** More often now, we are asked to create our signature with our finger on a touch pad, whether point of purchase, or at your door receiving a package. We can all agree that for the most part, that signature will never look like the one in pen and ink. So let’s skip that signature completely in this discussion. Is your legal signature legible? Meaning, you can see the letters that spell the words. Or is it more a scrawl? I scrawl. My deliberate handwriting is very legible, sometimes quite beautiful, and my signature is nothing like that. It’s an automatic movement with the hand, holding an object. Kinda like wanking. And as messy. I never write anything else that could be connected with that scribble, at least not if someone else is meant to read it. When did the signature you use now get set? On your first drivers license? Your first checkbook? Your first set of loan documents where you did it 10,000 times? Is there anything about your signature that only you would know, making it harder to forge? I knew a woman years ago who when signing anything, did a final move, a little dot of Ink below the line under a particular letter, which she smeared in a particular direction. It would look like an ordinary pen accident, but it was her way of knowing that it was indeed hers. I thought that was cool. Does your name seem too long for repetitive signing? Contain Suffixes? Complex middle namesI? I am a junior but my signature doesn’t reflect it - it all kinda runs together. If you are younger and received little or no formal teaching of cursive writing, was forming your legal signature a challenge? If it was a simple process to alter your official signature to a version that was preferable, would you change it? If you changed your name for marriage or other reason, how easily did you adapt? Is someone’s signature a point of attraction?- not sexual, but something unique or beautiful about a signature that makes you want to get to know them? Or have you watched the state of mind when people sign? On auto-pilot? Particular attention to it, perhaps with a flourish? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2ylvWg6AV7g An autograph is something everyone makes, especially in public, so tell us all about… Yours sincerely, + JoeMendoza 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
