Ah, it is such a lost art. I think being able to write cursive is a valuable skill — like learning a language almost. These days my notes are in secret code (aka pretty cursive) so I have to text lists or print if I need something. With writing, you’re able to make it yours; able to make your signature yours. And schools have taken away a few fundamentals (music, recess, handwriting skills), I think they need to return to. But I guess I’m old school. I came up in a time when we spent all of our summers outdoors; cellphones (carphones) were bricks only celebrities had in the movies; you knew when to be home when the street lights popped on at night. Unlike today, we were required to physically write and write often. So, no. We can not hold it against them, for having no clue how to sign their own name.
