Aren't we all . . . I'd go & take my 3rd 'class medical' ; those Doctors - would tell me that - "you are 'color blind' , for reds & greens" .
Really . . . . . . . well . . . " I work in a body shop ; and paint cars " . Then, he says too me : how do you know ' when too stop at a Red Light (you just stop , when
you see the top light (red light) . I said - no - ' cause if I drive to Terrell, (Texas) . . . those Red lights are = (mounted) horizontal . . !
Then, my buddy & instructor would always ' quiz me ' after that .

We went down too Scottsdale - and , I took the FAA - Light GUN Test : you get 6 random lights , shot at you : Random order - - (being either : RED or GREEN)
........ 3 lights @ 1,000' & 3 lights @ 1,500' (you have too
score = 100 % .
I missed the very 1st light color ; which means = I 'flunked that test' (@ 1,000 ft distant ) ...........
but , then I did get the next 5 lights , correct : results was - " No Night Flying " .. . . . yeah sure











I also got stopped by : U S CUSTOMS , they were inside my plane , searching ....................................................................................... (we'll just leave it - at that ) .

back on topic . .

isn't it funny how you get discriminated at places for color vision. example put your credit card in the slot an casher says hit the green button. i ask which is the green button an get a look like there is a friggin' turkey sitting on my head. also 90 % of all military jobs require normal color vision but back in the 60's n 70's they could still draft ya. ya i got drafted. also got a note sent home with me in grade school telling my parents that they were failing as parents because they hadn't tought me how to tell colors. that didn't go over to well on the teacher when my mother showed up.
