I've seen notes written by managers...

... at factories which were impossible to decipher.

If they simply wrote as they talked, like dictation, it would be understandable. But for whatever reason, they repeatedly struggled to do it.

I can't remember the details of their notes and memos anymore, but I'll make up an example to illustrate it. Suppose a manager wanted a machine to be shut down and thoroughly cleaned. Then their written note might be: "Machine 6 clean shut down."

Yet they had no problem expressing the instructions VERBALLY, in a completely understandable manner. So why not just write the same way?! Even if they misspelled every other word while trying to write a sentence like they talked, it would at least be much more understandable that way.
