Do you guys sign the back of your cards?

I never usually sign the back of my cards.. I actually used to write "CID" on the back of mine..but when I would pay at restaurants it would get annoying..should I sign the back of it?

I always do.  Some establishments will not accept your card without signature.

I don't. I write "see photo ID". Cashiers used to never ask and I'd always mention it to them. In the last year or so I've noticed more often than not they'll ask.
