PHARMACIST AND THE DEAF
A pharmacist has two jobs – one is to
make medicine and also to explain to
patient what to do with the medicine.
A hearing person, visiting a small
town, was confused about the medicine
she got from her home town pharmacy.
She went to the small town pharmacy
and asked the pharmacist to explain
it to her.
A deaf person may struggle if
he went to a small town pharmacy,
if the pharmacist has never met a
deaf person in his life!
WORTH IT TO WIN MILLION-DOLLAR LOTTERY
Is it worth it for a deaf person to
win a million-dollar lottery?
A deaf person won the lottery, not
once but twice.
He had to quit his job because
hearing employees were jealous and
gave him hard time.
He also lost many friends in the
Deaf Community – same reason jealousy
among deaf ex-friends.
Worth it? Good question.
DEAF CRUISE OR HEARING CRUISE
Which is better for a deaf traveler –
Join a Deaf Cruise or a Hearing Cruise?
With a Deaf Cruise, very easy to
communicate with other deaf travelers.
Disadvantage is that you see same old
deaf faces all the time.
With a Hearing Cruise, there are
strangers that have many interesting
stories to share during dinners and
during cruise social events. For
deaf, it is impossible to communicate
without an interpreter! Hearing
people on vacation during cruises
don’t like to write notes.
BLACKOUT WARNING ON HEARING CRUISE
A deaf person went on a cruise
(hearing cruise, not deaf cruise).
A public announcement was made
during the cruise – that as part of
the ship maintenance, there would be
a 40-minute electrical black out.
Hearing people, hearing the
announcement, would unplug their
laptops in their cabin rooms to
prevent damages during blackouts.
A deaf person would know nothing
DEAF JOGGERS AND HEARING JOGGERS
What is the diffeence between a deaf jogger
and a hearing jogger?
The deaf jogger just goes out of his house
and jogs on the streets. Very simple.
Hearing jogger is different. They worry
about the music and struggle with selection of
music songs on their smartphones while jogging.
Not very simple!
A DEAF KID WITH HEARING FAMILY
DeafDigest editor was eating at a pizza
place in Washington, DC.
Next to him was a large table with family
members. One of the family members was a kid.
He saw DeafDigest editor signing to his wife.
When the DeafDigest editor paid the check
and left the table, the deaf kid suddenly
waved – I am deaf.
Very heartbreaking for a deaf kid to be
ignored by his family members.
CODA HATES THIS QUESTION
A Coda told DeafDigest that he hates this question
from his hearing friends.
The question is:
Why are you not deaf if your parents are deaf?
AIRPORT BONUS OFFER
A public announcement system made this
announcement at an airline – that those willing
to give up their seats because of overbooking
will get a $500.00 reward.
Hearing people hear it and rush to grab the
$500.00 bonus for giving up their airline seats.
Deaf person will know nothing about it. Yes,
about 10 minutes later the display screen
will say the same thing – but it is too late!
