Sometimes it’s nice to be complimented on your handwriting.

Because when your manager tells you you have the neatest handwriting she’s ever seen, you get to silently thank the very handsome boy who told you the same thing back in seventh grade and finally confirm that he was right. And that’s a very good feeling.

Sometimes it’s nice to be complimented on your handwriting.

Because it can become the one shred of hope you hold onto that yes, you do have value to offer this world after all, once you and your manager part ways.

Sometimes it’s nice to be complimented on your handwriting.

Because it means when all technologies fail, at least you have the temporary solution and you become the hero. That, or the one who has to do all the makeup work. (In that case, nevermind, it’s not so nice.)
