Well I'm not entirely sure what to say. Just be aware of anyone needing time off for new pipe to be laid.
Why would you be embarrassed about not being able to read someone's writing? It's their fault that it's sloppy.
Sadly, some of us have very bad handwriting. I know my handwriting isn't the best, I've tried numerous times to make it neater. I usually try to write very slowly and to make it as legible as possible when writing for someone else; I don't expect them to read my handwriting as well as I do! If I have the option to type it, though, I use it because it's a sure-way method it will be readable.
This can actually be due to a learning disability called dysgraphia. Both my brother and one of my friends have it. My brother's case is pretty mild, but his handwriting hasn't changed since he was ten. It's legible, but childlike - and he has to really focus to make it legible. Notes he leaves for himself just look like scribbles. My friend has a much worse case of it. She struggles to write a sentence and until she was diagnosed in 9th grade (and allowed to do all assignments on a computer) she caught a lot of ribbing, even from teachers, for her handwriting. My 10th grade physics teacher once told me I have "ugly girl writing. Girls are supposed to write all loopy and neat and pretty and your handwriting looks like my Dad's."
