Oddly poetic

In the lobby of the building my office is in, I noticed a man using a red-tipped white cane giving a man using a red-tipped white cane a tour of the building. And, I realized, he made sense as the ideal tour guide: he already knew the landmarks that would be relevant to someone not using visual senses.

With that, the phrase "the blind leading the blind" has just lost pretty much all of its traditional meaning for me.
