DEAF AND THE DISABLED
Why do many deaf people refuse to call themselves
Because they are not physically disabled. And also
for another reason, they are afraid that if they
call themselves disabled, hearing people will
fell sorry for them, and give them sympathy all
THE DEAF AND THE COPS
Always scary when it happens at night. That a crime
took place next door to your home. Aand the cops come
over to investigate the crime.
You sleep throughout everything and know nothing
You wake up in the morning and the neighbors tell
you about it!
TWO LUCKY DEAF PRINTERS
DeafDigest editor just chatted with two deaf printers.
They worked at their government agencies for many years.
And at one time there were many hearing printers working
Technology has changed everything in the printing
world. No more printing presses. Instead, the computers
do all of the printing jobs.
All of these hearing printers were either laid off
or forced to retire or reassigned to different jobs.
Two deaf printers? Still employed at their agencies,
but no longer using printing presses, just using the
BIG DEAF EVENT CROWD IS BAD?
You agree to meet a deaf friend at a big deaf
There were so many deaf fans at the tournament
gym, about 1,700 fans.
You look very hard to find your deaf friend and
cannot find him, and give up and go home after the
Your deaf friend was also looking for you but
cannot find you, and he also gave up and went home!
So, big deaf basketball crowd good or bad?
What is Deaf Studies? Is it a class or a major
that a deaf student takes at Gallaudet?
Or is it just being a student at Gallaudet, different
major, but learning everything about deafness on campus.
DeafDigest editor knows of one person who left
Gallaudet years ago because it had no Deaf Studies
major and transferred to a hearing college because
it had a Deaf Studies major.
It is an irony!
HARD TO READ HEARING FACES
Is it hard to read a hearing face? A hearing person
may be a snob, or very talkative or something.
A deaf person may often misread the hearing face
not knowing who he really is.
That hearing person may be really very shy and
other hearing people knows that, yet deaf person
did not realize it!
MCDONALD’S HATE THE DEAF?
Does McDonald’s hate the deaf? DeafDigest editor
does not think so.
But there have been bad newspaper stories in
recent weeks about McDonald’s refusing to serve
the deaf; refusing to hire the deaf; kicking the
deaf out of the restaurant, etc?
Maybe McDonald’s should hire a Deaf Representative
to work with the Deaf Community!
STANDING UP AT THE RECEPTIONIST’S LOBBY
You have an appointment and see the receptionist.
The receptionist says fine, and asks you to sit
in the waiting room. She will call you when
your name comes up.
The waiting room looks different. You cannot
see the receptionist from the back area of the
waiting room. You can see her from the front area.
The front area is full. the back area is
You are forced to stand up for a long time
in the front area to make sure receptionist does
not overlook you!
