4. Opening a bank account
5. Marriage license
6. Loan application
7. Restraining order 
8. UPS and FedEx
9. To obtain the material things you had on your person when you are released from jail
10. Letters, remember them?  At my old job, I had to write at least 20 per day
11. Lottery winnings

There are probably a thousand other reasons to learn to write in cursive, those are just the ones I could think of.  

Signed, a woman who won numerous awards for penmanship and is still proud of her cursive handwriting.


LOL this above signing for a package though?

Honestly I think signatures have great potential to become obsolete as well. I mean I e-sign my taxes, and other important documents that are filled out electronically. Signatures are easy to forge. Who really compares the signature on the receipt to the card? (Well in the US. They will study that ish overseas.)

Ok! I'll post one later.

Disclaimer: Writing with a calligraphy nib made me feel so damn fancy so now my writing tends to have extra flourishes that are not textbook cursive, LOL.

I turned in an essay and she put an A at the top then balled it up in the trash in front of the class
 
She told me about presentation being very important.
 
I love that old bitty


I got a C on an A paper once because I didn't dot my i's. I learned.LOL

eta: also my favorite English teacher.

They don't even teach it in school anymore...a lot of young professionals that i work with don't even know how to sign their names.

my Mom used to 'write' calligraphy...so beautiful...such a lost art...

I just wrote them as I thought of them.

There are many things that can be paid online, but there is no way in hell I would allow my landlord access to my bank account.  Deposit my handwritten check and if anything is funky, I'd be coming after that management company.
