Default How do you sign electronic credit card pads?

was just at a deli and paid by cc. I scribbled some random swirls when it came to sign, and my coworker was shocked that i didn't sign my actual signature. so, am curious: how do you "sign"?

I found out that all of that finger painting I did in pre-school was actually preparing me for The Future.

I'm super uptight.

I used to sign my signature perfectly. Then I learned that anarchists like you are destroying the system, so now I do a squiggle that approximates my signature, always making sure to dot the i in my last name.
