    It made me wonder enough to ask a sober person if it made sense to them. It didn't.

    Honest!! I've braille on doors where Navy pilots are trained. But worse is braille on the shooting stalls at a range I used to go to.

    Here at work, my floor is home to the Division of Blind Services - many of their employees are sight-impaired. Things can get 'interesting' in the men's room...... ;)
    Had one young man, Adam, speaking of a lady co-worker who had just left for another agency - holding his white cane, he quips "And she had great legs!"
    I almost choked myself trying not to laugh.......... :D

    Mickey Dee's sign at the drive through - "Warning! Coffee is HOT!" floors me everytime I see it! :)

    Then next time you are in McDonalds look closely at the keys on the register. They have little pictures of the items on them and if you don’t want onions they have a onion with a red circle and slash through it. I’m not kidding they don’t punch in the amount anymore they punch the picture that’s why if the total is $4.58 and you give them a $10 dollar bill, two quarters and a dime they give you that deer in the headlights look.

    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! :(

    I forgot to take my Kevlar pills today!

    Still waiting to see if the gubbmint is going to require the cockpit of a jet fighter to be wheelchair accessable..........:cool:

    Altho we DID have one genius of a city inspector that was insisting that light switches be labeled in braille- so that a blind person could turn on the lights in their apartment. (DOOOH!)

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

    Ask for a "baker's dozen" and throw them way way off.

    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.
