I thought that American tourists are supposed to be so obvious to all foreigners that they'd think, "This has to be the (American) card holder generating a signature!"
Ironically for me a tourist spot in Australia gave me the most hassle with signature in that they actually checked and made me sign again since I scribbled like I was used to doing in America. I think the rest of the places I went to didn't bother checking because the transaction amounts were low anyway.
