NO TO MORE COFFEE
At a restaurant, a waiter offered to pour more coffee

A deaf person was promoted to a big and important
supervisory position in a big company.
Congratulations or sympathy? Well, in that company
almost all hearing workers were lazy and did not

hearing employees are members of.
Not an easy supervisory job for anyone!

of that senior citizen.
TV commercial does not say if deaf senior citizens
can use that push-button neck tag?
