Excellent. I've got a couple for you.1) When you're outside at night and hear crickets chirping, is that like 10 crickets or 300 crickets?2) How does a blind dude know when he's done wiping his ass?
Good point about the crickets. Even when there's just one it sounds like more.Your second question is most disturbing! How indeed? I guess at some point he'd have to guess that it's just got to be good enough! ;-)
Are you saying blind people walk around with raw asses from over wiping?As for braille on the ATM machines, I've always wondered myself.I also wonder why would a blind person use an ATM at all. How do they know it gave them the right amount of money?A five feels just like a ten etc etc.
Fairlane, very good point. Although I suppose they could just assume if they correctly pressed the keys (that were marked in Braille) that they would be getting the right amount. I guess you could say they'd have to accept it on blind faith! (Groan...) May I add here the obligatory disclaimer that no offense is meant to blind people...;-)
It always amazes me when folks ask about that.It's so NFL officials, and MLB umpires can withdraw their money!
Good one, Future! It all makes sense now!
I imagine that those who are blind and still able to walk around (we see them all the time with their canes and seeing eye dogs) need to walk to a machine to get money. There are ATM's in the malls, bank entrance ways, and grocery stores. Since blind people have to shop, I imagine they have to trust if they are getting the right change, no?Some who are considered blind can actually see a little,but looking at a computer screen is difficult. Just a thought...
Oh....and doesn't the money in ATM's come in $20 increments only? They only have to know how to count the $20 bills. I don't think I've seen a machine that gives smaller increments.
ME, I totally agree - a walk-up ATM with Braille makes sense. But I don't think people are supposed to walk up to the drive-in ATM. But I suppose the manufacturers just make them all the same, which would explain it.And yes, most of them do just do $20's. The one at my job, however, does give out $10's sometimes. However, it's either ALL $10's or ALL $20's so I guess people could figure that out too.
Maybe a blind bank customer in a car driven by a spouse, a friend or a caretaker, is taking the customer to the bank?I remember many years ago, I was a manager in an HR department of a mid-sized company. A training seminar I attended reminded people that not all disabilities are obvious.This came in handy when I later learned a woman in my department (I was her boss) had MS, yet she was able to continue working and displayed no outward signs of the disabling disease.
This is true, it could happen! Sometimes we forget that not all disabilities are obvious.
You forgot this one:"Why do we drive on a parkway, and park on a driveway?"
Oh the mysteries of life!
Why does Hawaii have interstate highways?
How do blind people find the walk-up ATM's?
They use their canes?
Phydeaux, that is definitely another mystery of life, as Fran said!Joe, that is something I've also wondered! How can they be interstates when they can't leave the state?Fairlane, I guess they'd have to have their dog lead them there! Or a companion.
Friend #2, good point - a cane would also do it!
so steven wrightI went to a restaurant that serves "breakfast at any time". So I orderedFrench Toast during the Renaissance
