I am Deaf right!
I could not hear a siren or any loud noise unless my left ear is turned toward the sound!
I’ve told you about this in Did you hear the fire truck post.
Many times, and I often run out of fingers counting, I have been approached by people talking to me about this or that. Or I’m trying to get my point across.
So, here is a play by play…
Me: Giving them a coupon (2 for 1)… gesturing 3.
Cash: Blah blah blah
M: gesturing, Deaf
C: Blah blah blah.
M: Coffee (voice is croaky)
C: inputs to menu… one combo with Root Beer, one combo with coffee… $12.38
M; holding three fingers up…
C: inputs three combos, total $28.11
M: What? How did that three combos cost $28 bucks? (Voice is very croaky, I must sound like George Burns impersonating Donald Duck with a serious sinus infection!) I want THREE! It should not cost that must!
C: Inputs… two combos, and one hamburger…total $18.94.
M: Thank you! That is better!
Oh, that is a recent event… But I am also talking about people who continue to blah blah blah at me, after I have told them several times: I am Deaf! And my White cane is obvious. So, they are not making the connection… Get with the program! I am Deaf-Blind. Lipreading is beyond my abilities!
And, yes, I do have cards ready!
I will share with you a fun story that happened to me in Florence, Italy almost 18 years ago.
Remember to share, like and support!
(PS, I have closed my GoFundMe account… so, by Support, I mean, click on the ads… that is how I get paid! I just made my first $2.50 a month ago, after publishing for the past 18 months!)
