Handwriting seems to be something which degrades over time when coupled with the use of keyboards. I used to have highly decorative, flowing handwriting which people admired. Now it just looks like Arabic and even I can't read it, and any letter or card I am forced to write, or form I have to fill in, with a pen will have gazillions of crossings out, and look hideously messy. Thankfully, I am in a field of work where job adverts never say: "Apply in writing"..

Keyboards are just better, let's face it. Most computer people can type at the speed at which they think. In the time it takes to write something with a pen, you could have done 10 word perfect (unintentional pun there) versions on a keyboard, had several cups of tea and gone for a walk. Down with these primitive tools!
