AUTOMATIC EMPLOYER EXCUSE
A deaf person was job-seeking. He could
not find a job.
During one interview, the employer says
all employees must be able to communicate
with customers, and that a deaf person cannot
communicate.
The deaf person said he could write his
responses on paper or through relay service.
The employer’s automatic excuse:

Sorry, I cannot hire you.

It happened in Great Britain, where there
is no ADA. If the employer said the same
thing in USA, he will be sued.

HEARING ASL STUDENT’S BIGGEST THRILL
What is the biggest thrill and also the
biggest dream of many hearing ASL students?
It is bumping into a deaf person and fully
communicating with him in ASL!

WORDS VERY EASY TO LIPREAD
A deaf person walking his dog can easily
lipread a little hearing girl asking:

Can I pet him?

If the little hearing girl said something
different, just forget it!

CAPTIONS ON UNITED AIRLINES
United Airlines that fly to Europe have captions
on some of their movies.
This is great – but what is not so great is
that most of their movies are not captioned.
Hearing people have more choices with their
movies; deaf choices are limited.
