    With my tremor, I use a lot of time. I love the comment I frequently get from the cashier, “Just take your time.” What, do they think I’m rushing???

    Better check to see if your milk expired while waiting

    What happens if you have a really long name? Like that lady in Hawai who campaigned for more space on her licence to write her whole name?

    maybe ‘squeak squeak squeak’ or ‘scratch scratch scratch’ (depending on the surface she’s writing on.
    write write write—-doesn’t quite make it, but what do I know?

    Old people still write checks; they don’t use debit cards.

    BJACH outpatient pharmacy recently quit using signature-capture pads because wait times were so long. The change helped.

    A fellow sufferer! With that, one has to take time, otherwise it looks like the wires under the table for computers. At least “effective” (it should be “affective”) or “familial” tremor beats the old name of “senile palsy”.

    I’m impressed whenever a lady that old actually uses the pin pad. What drives me crazy is when they count 2,000 pennies out of a change purse that’s buried at the bottom of a purse under 20 tubes of lipstick or, even worse, when they write a check that then has to undergo 10 minutes of scrutiny by a second level manager before being accepted. As for the actual signature on a signature pad – it serves no purpose. I don’t even try to sign my name – I just squiggle it and they’ll have to figure I’m a physician or something. Even if I made an effort to honestly sign my real signature, there would be so many missed spots of empty space it wouldn’t look like my signature anyway, so it doesn’t matter.

    The pin pads generally USED to look just like a squiggle but nowadays can give a pretty clear read out (just as surveillance cameras are also improving). I’m fairly old (76) but can sign a pin pad clearly as well as online papers and contracts.

    do they really check those? mine is a different squiggle every time.

    @hippogriff

    Any resemblance to your real signature is purely coincidental. Understand that someone merely puts a smiley face down.
