I am listening to you talking about joined up handwriting. When i was told to start doing it, I thought you were supposed to join the words together too, so I would make a finger space with my finger and carefully draw a line like an underscore between the two words
I was so proud and pleased when they said i could try it because i was top of the class and ahead of everyone and everything. and then I was so humiliated when I showed the teacher my work and she laughed at me. My poor massive delicate ego
@Damage Ack. This is such a wank bit of school :(
As a left hander, joining writing up just smeared it, so I kept going back to writing unjoined. When they made me do it again, I eventually got sent to the head teacher for a chat about not putting loops on the bottom of p's and g's.
Have never written joined up since leaving, fuck the police &c.
