— doctor’s bad attitude

In South Carolina, a doctor told a deaf

I don’t know how to deal with the disabled,

the Illinois Airport Authorities of his deafness,
they gave him air safety booklet that was in
Braille! Guess it happens to some of us, that
at restaurants we tell the waiters of our
deafness, they hand out menus in Braille.
