No One Said You Had to be Smart

Posted by: Blue

Two days ago, one of the other crews had an intoxicated prisoner in one of the cells.  They filled out a property form and asked him to sign for the items that they had taken for safekeeping.  His name was Isaac.

The first attempt at a signature was painfully slow.... then he scribbled it out, presumably due to a spelling error.  His next attempt stuck.  This is how he spelled "Isaac":

That's right.  "I - Backwards 3 - Backwards 3 - 9 - C".

I've encountered a number of illiterates already, but none that couldn't spell their own name.  Wow.

Remarkably, his last name was correctly spelled on the first attempt.
