Why was I taught cursive in school in the late 90s when I've never actually used it in my life outside of elementary school and writing my own signature? In fact, I don't know anyone who writes in cursive.

Edit: Wow, I didn't expect this to blow up like it did! Thanks for all the answers everyone! For me personally, I was never great at writing in cursive, but I can still read it just fine. I've always been able to write in print faster than writing in cursive. Plus, the only time I really ever have to write deals with paperwork that typically states "please print clearly". Edit 2: 700+ comments?! This is insane! Thank you so much everyone! Edit 3: Unless you got them for free, please stop giving me awards. Please donate that money to a local homeless shelter or local animal shelter. At the very least, give someone a positive compliment today. Make someone else's day a little better. submitted by /u/Overfrozen69 to r/NoStupidQuestions [link] [comments]
