    I'm one of the (few evidently) women who don't hold my mouth open when applying mascara...

    Braille ATM wise, my theory... it's less bother and expense to make ALL buttons braille than it is to have two separate factory lines, one for braille and one not. Also, when a button has a problem there's no worry that you brought the wrong replacement button - either simply for asthetics wanting all to be the same, OR imagine how cranky someone who needs those would be to find one or more on wrong and three tries you're blocked rule on ATM would make it even worse! Not to mention that a friend could drive their blind friend to the ATM, just like any other person may be the driver but the passenger has the moolah.

    That's my theory anyways.

    The Garage one we are definitely guilty of though... of course, the fact that our landlord sealed up the garage contributes, but even before then... *blush*

    Must admit the drug store one shocked me. You can buy smokes and medicine in the same store.
