    I think the late great George Carlin had a few of these. Like why are there locks on the doors of stores that are open for 24 hours?

    I always loved the wheelchair-accessable bathroom stalls on the second floor of a building with no elevators. Now, that's gotta be classified as "cruel and unusual", forcing a wheelchair-bound person to negotiate a flight (or two) of stairs to use the potty!

    I read something yesterday about applications for an air traffic controller being available in braille! :shock:
    I am all for giving people with handicaps, or challenges, opportunities for jobs. BUT when it is a job like ATC, we have to think it through.

    Velius, stores are notorious for doing that. I love the "4 for $1" signs on cans of soup and stuff, and look at the normal price and its like $.25. I swear I found a supermarket that had that "sale", and the regular price was $.20. Yet people are too dumb to do the math.
