    How often do you seen cursive? I can honestly say that probably 99% of what I see and read is print.

    Like I said, for Americans it's a massive burden, for most people it's just a thoughtless action. It's fine though, I've long accepted that you guys are just a bit simple.

    Yes, personal preference is a massive burden.

    you never receive letters? Do you not write to your mother to tell her of the horrors of life abroad and to ask her to hang a yellow ribbon on the front porch for when your return? What sort of robotic monster are you?
    Great men of action never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job.

    Is forgetting cursive really a thing? (is it common?)

    As far as I know, everyone in PR can read/write it.

    It wasn't a requirement in high/middle school, but because it's faster it became a habit.

    Though I'm in favor of print over cursive practice.

    As long as they can read cursive, it should be fine.

    You'd be amazed at what we could do after the white men came.

    I mean, once we moved past the killing to prove they weren't gods and all.

    I don't have any trouble reading cursive. I assume I can still write it, though honestly it's probably been 15 years since I've tried, so I guess I'm not positive on that part. But being able to read it is necessary.
    I think I'd equate not being able to read or write cursive in America is about the same as not being able to read and write in romaji in Japan. You might be able to get by but you'll end up missing out on a lot.

    America has an awful public school system. Now even the universities are filled to the brim with slack jawed idiots.

    Well since 99% of text you read is in print, I don't think it's an issue. I guess people that ignored/forgot cursive won't be able to read all those books published in cursive...oh wait.

    I can't even remember the last thing I read in cursive that wasn't something that I wrote.

    You have never received a perfumed love letter from a busty maiden?
