I think the change bin is cool, but not very practical....it is very hard to get the change out without some of it falling on the floor....and I am right handed and find it difficult to use my left hand to get the change out, especially while pulling into a toll booth.
I really like the change bin, but I too hate it's location. Unless I'm out of the car with the door open I have a devil of a time getting the "right" coins out of it. On the up-side, it fills up fast and stays that way because I'd rather spend paper or dig in my pockets. When I get to the car wash, I'm greatful for it's current design because there's usually enough quarters to do the job! Maybe adding a second one would be a good compromise.
I am very tall (6'7"). When I am not careful, I scrape my right shin bone on the #$%^^@ change door. Pavlov would be happy as it doesn't happen nearly as often anymore. I do have lots of nice scabs and scars from the door though.
[quote:97d8a28956="jjj_11"]Yeah I was pissed because I thought it was one of those food machines like on star trek where you press a button and your food appears before you. Damn, that's why I bought the element! [/quote:97d8a28956]
Heeeeee! Whenever I'm frustrated by a lack of technology I mumble to myself "We need Star Trek!" My friends have come to accept this as one of my quirks.
