A BIG SCANDAL IN OFFICE
A deaf person worked in a office. He is the only
person that is deaf.
There was a big scandal. The company bookeeping
showed a $2.60 difference. The boss was angry and
ordered an outside auditor to find out the $2.60
difference. It was solved but the boss had to pay
the auditor $525.00 for this job. Everyone knows
about it.
The deaf person knows nothing because no one told
him about it!

WHY DEAF AVOID DEAF?
Why do many deaf people avoid the deaf? Hard
to say because if you ask them they won’t admit
they avoid the deaf.
Possible reasons – refuse to learn ASL;
belief they are better than deaf; parents told
them to avoid deaf; they hear better because
of CI or hearing aid and can chat with hearing;
ashamed of deafness, etc.
Good or bad? Hard to say.

DEAF AWARENESS WORKSHOPS FOR POLICE OFFICERS
More communities have deaf awareness workshops
for police officers.
This is great – except for one thing. A police
officer may remember the workshop lessons on how
to deal with the deaf person.
But he may not see a deaf person for about 10
years. Suddenly he arrests a deaf person. Will he
remember his deaf awareness lessons from 10
years ago?
DeafDigest editor does not think so. It is
scary.

caption-friendly

CAPTION-FRIENDLY RESTAURANTS
Deaf people love to go out and eat – no matter
if it is low cost fast food restaurant or a
bar that serves hamburgers or fancy restaurants.
These deaf people know which restaurants are
caption-friendly and which are not!
What is a Caption Friendly restaurant? Captions
always turned on restaurant TV sets are
Caption Friendly? Restaurants that never turn on
captions are not Caption Friendly!

careless-people

WONDERING WHY
DeafDigest editor is always wondering why
people are careless about their hearing aids
and CI. They often misplace or lose them,
and cannot afford new hearing aid or new
CI.
Same thing with deaf babies with CI.
These people are careful with their laptops
and iPads but not careful with their
hearing aids and CI.
Always a mystery!

pointing-at-credit-card

A STRANGE RESTAURANT MANAGER
A deaf person ate at a restaurant. When he
was finished he gave the waiter his credit card.
That credit card had a logo of his favorite
sports team.
The manager came over with that credit card.
He pointed to the credit card, but his lips were
locked.
The deaf person was puzzled. Was the manager
making fun of the sports team logo? Or was he
saying the credit card is no good? Or was he
saying something else?
The deaf person paid the bill but was puzzled
what the manager was trying to say?
