# In the idiom "Dot your I's and cross your T's" why don't they also put cross your X's? amirite?

The voters have decided that GigemAggies is wrong! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

because if you don't cross your x when you write it it's not an x, it's a v.

@boxtop But if you don't cross your T, it's an L.

Yeah, honestly crossing the t and dotting the i are on two completely different levels of significance.

@Courage_Wolf Yeah, honestly crossing the t and dotting the i are on two completely different levels of significance.

An x uncrossed would just be a slash, buddy. Making an upside down v doesn't mean crossing it

@KickAss An x uncrossed would just be a slash, buddy. Making an upside down v doesn't mean crossing it

I draw the line going diagonally to the lower right first, then the one going diagonally to the upper left. Uncrossed, it would have these two lines but without a crossing point.

Why? Why would you do that? Making an x, isn't really that convoluted a process, that everyone needs to find their own way of doing it... so you're saying, you first create a reverse y? Then draw the little slash? And still your argument was if you don't cross it, then it's a v, but you draw a y... it makes no sense

\ and /, if you cross them in the middle, make an x. If not, you get \/, which resembles a v.

@boxtop But if you don't cross your T, it's an L.

Or an I...
I mean, my I's look like l's.
