I just went to a drive through ATM. Now, sure, thats not too unusual. Its very convenient, but not unusual. But there was something about it that caught my eye.

The buttons all had BRAILLE underneath.

That means there are people who are BLIND, driving up to these ATMs and drawing money. Its not a regular ATM that happens to be labeled drive though. Oh no. This is a purpose built, tilted up and with wide buttons and convenient goodies ATM. Its only for drive through. And they put braille on it. What in the hell?

I wonder if someone was trying to make sure they didn't get sued for discrimination or something, you know it gets. But come on now?! Either that, or there is a secret amazing super-duper car that drives around by itself.

The blind dude driving just needs to wear glasses with magazine cut-out eyes stuck on the front so noone suspects.

It's like this:

1. Blind person imports a car from South Africa, securing right hand drive.
2. Blind person hires a driver.
3. Blind person operates Braille encrusted keypad and pays said driver.
