    I have one friend who has color blindness. Sometimes, he would tell me the color name different from the actual one. However, it does not affect much in his life. Once, when he got a job in good microelectronic industry, he was later on rejected based on color blindness test. Other than that, there was not much impact and he seems to enjoy life as usual.

    Funny story. One of my employees is color blind.
    He has this phone, and I love to make fun of him for it. You see, he told me the story....

    He was at the mall, looking at phones. He really liked this particular phone. He decided he was going to get it. It was a red phone.
    His girlfriend said "Are you sure you want that phone?" "Yeah I like it", he replied, "Why?"
    "Oh, no reason", she said.
    So he bought the phone.

    What makes this story funny, is that he is color blind - so he thought he was choosing a red phone. Now, I get to make fun of him every day, for his pink phone.

    coordinating clothes, unless they're grrr animals with matching animals or monochromatic and/or same color, may be an issue.
