That happens to me a lot. Give someone more than the amount to get a rounded amount back and they look lost. Srsly, it's simple ****ing math people, go back to skewl!

Or being told (at my request for a "half dozen" doughnuts), that they can sell me 6 but not a "half dozen".

If you look at the machines, 99% of the time its the same machine as the walk up. Even if it isn't, the keypads are all made in the same place. Cheaper to put braille on all of them then to have two separate manufacturing processes.

I used to work with visually impaired people and they were told that they should turn the lights on in their homes because if they had seeing eye dogs, the DOGS needed to the lights on so they could see what they were doing. I never thought about it until I heard that and it makes sense, really.
