My first day on the new job a few weeks back and this is what I had to endure:
The very tattooed lady (I use that term lightly) who works in the cafeteria looks at me and noticed my hearing aids.
“You go to Deaf School?” she asks.
I pause for a moment, shocked, and I reply
“No, I learned it all on my own.”
She grins (way over her head I guess) and says
“Take em out, lemme see”
Ya right, I am here for your amusement.
Can you imagine what ‘deaf school’ would look like?
A large building with the words “DEAF SCHOOL” printed on a huge sign, so we deaf people can read it.
Inside, a crowd of instructors teaching people how to be deaf.
I should consider myself lucky I guess,
my hearing aids come with a remote control. From this moment on, Tattoo lady will be on MUTE!
