1) ATM stands for Automated Teller Machine. “I need to swing by the ATM.” That’s a legitimate statement. But people continue to say things like “Can we find an ATM machine?” In other words, you’re looking for an Automated Teller Machine machine. Then you’re going to what, put in your PIN number (Personal Identification Number number).
2) The drive through ATM has a braille keypad and braille instructions. You know who uses braille right? Blind people. As a courtesy to their blind customers (who drive cars) all banks have braille keypads on their ATM’s.
I’ve driven lots of different types of vehicles; cars, trucks, vans, mini-vans, buses, from lots of different manufactures; Ford, Chevrolet, Cadillac, Plymouth, Dodge, Toyota, Nissan. You know what none of those vehicles had? Braille controls. Radio dials, blinker switches, climate control: some have words, some have pictures, no braille. I think that’s because BLIND PEOPLE DON’T DRIVE. Don’t worry, they don’t read my blog either.
Maybe the banks are one step ahead. If they ever come out with the braille car for blind drivers, the ATM’s will not need to upgrade.
