Computers Are Killing the Beauty of Cursive

I had an older woman look over my shoulder as I was filling out a service form for her. She commented "Call me old-fashioned, but when I see someone printing instead of writing in cursive, I think of them as uneducated or of the lower class. Are you uneducated?"

Lady, "old-fashioned" is certainly not the first thing to pop into my head to call you. On the other hand, I just can't wait to get old so I can say whatever I damn well please and have people dismiss it because of my age.
