Worst handwriting ever!

Sometimes when I tell people that I have the worst handwriting ever, they think that I’m joking.  So, here is some real proof.  This is a snapshot of the A1 paper which I used yesterday on a meeting.  This is me describing the shipping industry to a colleague of mine.


And that’s me not being limited to either space or time.  This is one of the most readable things I’ve ever created.  Mostly, because here you can see a diagram ,a list of things, and at least the first letters of the words that I was writing.  And, I haven’t layered topic over topic over topic, as I usually do.

The comment from the colleague in regards to this:

There are doctors with the better handwriting than you!

I know.  That’s why I touch type.
