It's Okay To Ask "Why?"

While pulling through a "royalty" fast food drive through, I saw a sign posted on the menu that caught my eye; "Picture menus available upon request". At first glance, one may think that this very considerate franchise is looking to accommodate any and all customers that may have either literacy issues or language barriers. At second glance, if you cannot read English, due to any of the above stated reasons ... How would you know what the sign said? Here is another one; The next time you use a drive through ATM, take note of the braille embossed on the buttons. Many people have told me that this is because visually impaired people may need to bank after hours. This is a wonderful observation and probably true, we all need more hours in the day to get things done. Only one problem with this theory, how did they find the machine located in the parking lot ... they're blind!
