The Blind are Driving?!?

Today, as I was driving home from work, I was behind a giant white SUV. And, as alot of cars now have, this one had sticker writing on the back. At first, I thought it was an advertisement. Then... I read it:

Warning: Blind Driver

That's right. It says warning, first of all, which is never a good sign. AND the driver is blind. BLIND. As in, they can not see.

I quickly put on my blinker to get around this crazy car.

I thought to myself? Who puts a blind person in the driver seat? Do they have special technology? Maybe I can see what this person looks like. Oooo no. I probably shouldn't stare. But, why not, not like they can see me. HEY. Why is the driver LOOKing at me. He's supposed to be blind. Hmm. I better slow down and get out of his line of vision. Or non vision. Or whatever.

Now, I am behind the SUV again. I read the sign again:

Warning: Blind Driver
American Blind Company

aW that's nice, a company for the blind.


Oh. no.

Blinds. American Blinds company. This person is an installer or salesman of window blinds.

Oh Sheesh.
