NO TO MORE COFFEE
At a restaurant, a waiter offered to pour more coffee
for a deaf patron.
The deaf patron had too much coffee and shook his head
“no” but the hearing waitress still poured more coffee.
Does the hearing waitress not understand head shaking
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!

The deaf person offered to turn on
the captions with the remote.
The bartender gave the deaf person
the remote. The deaf person looked at
the remote and found the “cc” button.
He was ready to push the button.
Suddenly the bartender grabbed
the remote before captions could be
DEAF WOMAN DESCRIBING HER DOG
A deaf woman walks her dog every day
and she is tired of hearing people coming
to her, asking questions about the pet.
She posted a message on her iPhone –

When a hearing person comes to her
asking about the dog, she will show

HEARING HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION CEREMONY A JOKE
A Coda was graduating from a high school.
The Coda wanted to make sure that her large
deaf family (parents, grandparents, deaf friends,
etc) had full accessibility (interpreters and
captions on screen).
The high school administration told the
Coda everything is being taken care of.
A big joke. The interpreter was at the
deaf-only section – but all of the hearing
people grabbed these seats since it was
first-come, first-served basis. They would
not listen to interpreter that tried to
explain it was for deaf only.
And the screen was not captioned. It
became a big joke.
HEARING DINNER WITH FEW DEAF GUESTS
A hearing dinner had two deaf guests.
The dining table was crowded with hearing
guests, so two deaf guests sat opposite
each other at end of table.
Some of the hearing guests hate each
other; they feud with each other.
A hearing guest, not involved with the
feuding, would catch these sarcastic
comments, certain words, etc.
A deaf guest would not know since
these hearing people smile with each
other – smiles covering up these feuds!
10,000 STEPS RULE ON I-PHONE
iPhone has an app that helps count
10,000 steps per day for users that want to
exercise and keep their weight down.
It may be funny! A deaf person was
communicating in ASL all morning with
her family and then went out for her walk.
She looked at the walk-counter and it
already showed over 10,000 steps and she
wasn’t even walking, except in her house.
It was realized that the iPhone confused
ASL movement of hands with walking on the
