At some point in the recent past I realized that the checkers were not looking at my signature at all let alone the back of my card. Most of the time you do not even give them the card. So I decided that it was no longer worth it to try to write out my name as sloppy and pixely as it was, and just decided to throw down a scribble. The scribbles have evolved and now I have a few standards. I guess those are my signature now… Maybe I should put them on the back of my card..
In addition to those I also have some special holiday signatures that I can endeavor on the highly accurate touch pad. Since I have started I have gotten several remarks from checkers that they are going to stop signing receipts. A few have given me a look especially when I throw down something like this.
However, NONE of them has asked to see my card or license. Maybe I am just that trustworthy or maybe they just don’t care. Either way, the credit card signature is officially no longer a security measure of any kind.
