I admit that when I am editing my own papers or writing lecture notes that they often resemble chicken scratch, but if I'm writing something that someone else will have to read, I make a note to be less messy. Or at the very least, LEGIBLE.
I've come across this numerous times in my educational career, as I'm sure have most of you. I'm trying to edit my very last paper ever, and I cannot seem to identify my professor's comments. I can see the underlining and the question marks, but for the actual comments/criticizms, I have no idea what he is trying to say.
Has this happened to anyone else? Aside from asking them what they were trying to say, what have you all done to figure it out?
