A WOMAN who only uses emails or texts during the rest of the year has discovered she has lost the ability to produce legible writing with a pen.
Donna Sheridan sat down to compose thoughtful messages to friends and family in Christmas cards but instead was left with severe cramp and no idea what she had written.
Sheridan said: “I used to have lovely handwriting, but 20 years of dumbly tapping at a device has robbed me of that skill.
“Instead it looks like a spider has crawled through some ink and then had an epileptic fit all over each card, and I’ve been left with a sort of hooked claw in place of my fingers.
“Does it look like I’ve written ‘with love’ or ‘f**k off’ at the end of granny’s card? I’m struggling to tell myself.
“Still, I suppose the postman will find the envelopes equally impossible to read so they’ll probably never reach their destinations anyway.”
