Back when I was in elementary school it was a common joke for my teachers to say I would become a general practitioner because my handwriting was so terrible.

You just weren't taught properly... nothing like a few hard whacks across the back of the knuckles with a metal-edged ruler, to sort out your handwriting.

When I were lad... LOL... teachers tried to force lefties to write right-handed, because they smudged the ink.
