Fingers have a good reason to be around when doors are shutting, but you're supposed to look after your head (it can't be amputated if it goes gangrenous you know).

All I was trying to do was get out of the car... maybe there was something shiny on the floor that caught my eye and made me keep my head in the door. It was a couple years ago. A couple nice oblivious years.

I don't know, maybe it comes from a hidden desire to conceal the meaning of whatever you're saying in order to keep it protected... when I was little I would always cover the paper with one arm and lay my head down on that arm when I was doing classwork, because people tended to copy off of me, or maybe I was scared that they'd try... that's also my excuse for my messy handwriting.

It's easy, just pretend that messy handwriting makes you look unique and artistic.

Mine has got worse since I stopped having to hand in everything to be makred. If I'm the only one who has to read it I assume that I'll know what I mean.

Some of my teachers have worse handwriting than me... kind of scary really. I like to think that teachers have an inherent ability to read the worst handwriting, but then again, I have a friend who once got a paper handed back with some comment like 'What does this say?' on it. It was algebra homework, too.

I think doctors and nurses probably has the worst handwritings ever. At least the ones I've worked with. It's just squiggles over the paper, and you can sit for ten or fifteen minutes trying to figure out what it says, to no avail.

...at least I thought it thought it was a gin and tonic.

It's because they have to write lots of short bits, quickly, and no-one tells them to go back and do it again neater.

Funny coincidence, my current aspiration is to be a doctor. I'd fit right in, I suppose...

Catwoman, no one can tell them to go back and write it again, cause they just do the scribble thing and then run off, so you don't have time to ask them to redo it. I always thought it'd be common courtesy when writing something that others might need to readm that you write it so that people can actually read it.

But since no-one can ask them to do it again they just assume that it's okay? We all tend to have an uncanny ability to read our own bad handwriting.
I guess they'd argue that they were stressed and busy and (blah blah blah)

Of course they do. But that still doesn't help. All doctors and nurses should be sent away to somewhere where they could learn how to write properly so that people can actually read what they are writing.

Yeah, but you know they'd forget it agin within about a week.

But if we're doing it then dentists too, okay?

Alternatively someone could make lots of money interpreting the handwriting of the medical types. Possibly a former pharmacist, they have to muddle through it a lot. Or a teacher.
