I put lines through my “7”s and “Z”s. And diagonal dashes through my zeros. My husband thinks it’s weird.

I guess it’s just my catholic school upbringing.

I don’t do that, but I’ve seen it. I never understood why.

My husband does the same. He is not Catholic although his wife is!!

No lines. No dashes.

My dd was putting lines through 7s and dashes through 0s when she was 13. She thought it was fancy. ;)

I only do the 7's. But yeah, I went to a Catholic school 🤣

I sometimes put lines through my 7s

I do it. I started it when I was doing coding so I could tell a 0 from an O

I went to Catholic school and was never taught to put lines through 7s and Zs. The lines through the zero makes sense when you are writing a random combination of letters and numbers to distinguish O from 0.

I put lines through my 7s and Zs.  I don't do that through my zeros.

I'm not Catholic and never attended Catholic school.  I didn't know that was a connection.  I just like the way it looks.
