I have also been to canada and alot of other countries that use more coins than paper money and you know what, you deal with it and it becomes no problem after a few days. It cost the government much more to print $1 bills than they are worth. Your concerned about cost until it inconviences you.Originally Posted by [b
As for cruches, I have learned to walk up and down stairs on crutches and know someone who can carry a full cup of coffee while on crutches, so you could have learned to go up and down stairs. Also if you couldnt get up the stairs your not getting ripped off by dishonest people. I have a blind friend who will only go to certain stores because he knows the cashiers there are honest. Atleast once a week he finds out someone shorted him on change if he goes places he doesnt know, and thats just too often in my opinion. Lets see how you would feel about the situtation if people kept ripping you off.
You are esentally advocating the blind have to learn to rely on other people which is not something that I believe we shoudl force them to do. These people arnt crying, they instead are asking for minor modifications to make the living of an independent life possible. How hard would it be to put in a hole punching stamp that woudl punch the holes as the bills are cut out of the large sheet. Sure its buying a new die for that one cutter but the cost of that would pale in comparison to much larger changes. Why cant we do something that woudl in the end cost very little to make peoples lives easier?
