On the dotted line

Is it too late for me to change my signature? My written one, I mean.

About fifteen years ago I was impressed into signing my name several hundred times in a row. By the end of that, the sig had gone from a 14-letter scrawl to an unintelligible scribble. What happens if I decide to change how I do it? Let’s say I do some drills for a week or so to make sure the new style is consistent. What happens on the rare occasions someone checks the back of my credit card? Would they believe me?

No, they won’t. I once changed the G and it was like all hell broke loose. Knowing how I love to shop, I did not take this well.

Several years ago, I had my signature compared to the one that was on my driver’s license as part of a county business filing. It was my old, you can read it signature on there, and my current one looks quite different. They wouldn’t allow it and I had to sit there in front of them and try to do it the old way. True story.
