I'm finding my handwriting, which was always bad, is getting much worse. I had to fill out some forms a couple of years back on a property sale and the bank rejected the paperwork based on my signature. I phoned them and told them it was insane (I was actually surprised anyone even still checks signatures anymore), but sure enough I checked the signature against an old driving licence from over a decade ago and they were completely different.
Some of that is probably just because we very rarely have to actually handwrite stuff anymore. Also signatures are mostly digital now, I know when I sign for a package or at a checkout etc. my digital signature is nothing like my old proper signature and I have caught myself using the sloppy one on actual paperwork recently.
