Today's post is a pictorial presentation of something I've always found a bit odd and disconcerting.
This is the sign outside the library branch here in Amarillo in which I most often frequent to check out books. And next we have a shot of the building's exterior as viewed from the parking lot.
Nothing to odd as of yet.
Above we have a sign pointing to the drive-up book deposit on the back side of the building. And below a shot of what that drive-up lane look like. Still no sign of anything peculiar.
And below we have the actual metal drawer which you can reach from your driver's window. All you gotta do is pull the handle and dump your books into the gaping metal mouth.
Notice anything odd?
Out of place?
Look close before you scroll down.
Remember this is a DRIVE-UP window on the back side of the building. Not one that anyone would ever walk up to. That chute is out front.
So why is there a braille plate at the bottom of the chute? I'm really hoping no one that needs to use that plate is driving up to that window. Yet it has been there for years. Riddle me this -- Why?
