So the blind may have cash

ZZ Top – Arrested For Driving While Blind

Today’s Quote: “Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence.” — Albert Einstein


The idea of braille on ATM keypads has always struck me as being a bit absurd but I’m sure it’s a standard feature of nearly all ATMs. Today when I used the drive-up ATM at my local bank I saw something else on the ATM that set off the absurdity alert. I saw a sign on the ATM indicating that voice-assisted services were available for the visually impaired. How nice, I thought. It’s wonderful that my bank is doing its part to provide convenient banking services to blind drivers. However, there is one thing about this that troubles me. Why does the BMV continue to give them licenses?


A 5 yr old boy went to visit his grandmother one day.

While playing with his toys in her bedroom while Grandma was dusting, he looked up and said, “Grandma, how come you don’t have a boyfriend?”
Grandma replied, “Honey, my TV is my boyfriend. I can sit in my bedroom and watch it all day long.
The TV evangelists keep me company and make me feel so good.
The comedies make me laugh. I’m really happy with the TV as my boyfriend.”
Grandma turned on the TV and the reception was terrible.
She started adjusting the knobs, trying to get the picture in focus.
Frustrated, she finally started hitting the backside of the TV, hoping to fix the problem.
The little boy heard the doorbell ring, so he hurried to open the door, and there stood a man. The man said, “Hello, son, is your grandma home?”
The little boy replied, “Yeah, but she’s in the bedroom bangin’ her boyfriend.”
