Ok - something that I've noticed lately that I don't like very much. Think of all the places you insert an ATM or credit card into - places like the gas station pump, ATM machine, ticket machine @ the movie theatre, grocery store credit card slider, etc...

Have you ever noticed that each one accepts your card differently? For some, the black stripe has to be on top. For others, the bottom. Some of them require the card to be inserted with the black stripe on the bottom and on the left side.

My plea to all ATM, credit card machines: SIMPLIFY IT AND MAKE THEM ALL THE SAME! FOR THE SAKE OF SANITY!!!
