Top stories about the deaf:

Deaf people of Jamaica are demanding explanation from the government on why they are not able to get
drivers’ licenses. The government has repeatedly said they can get licenses, but it has become the
same old rhetoric.

The Swiss Federation for the Deaf has demanded
that all election literature and announcements
of parliamentary bills be available in sign
language online. Not sure if Switzerland has
one sign language or four different sign
languages because it is a multi-lingual
nation!

The South Dakota task force said that the South Dakota School for the Deaf campus should
stay as is unless offer far exceeds what
the current value is.

Deaf students at Thom Collegiate (Regina, Saskatchewan)
have set up an art exhibit at a local library
with a Deaf Forest theme, hoping the public
will realize what deaf people face every day.

Uber has developed new software in deaf drivers’
cars to teach hearing passengers how to use simple
sign language – such as thank you.

A DEAF FRUSTRATION IN RESTAURANT
What is a big Deaf Frustration in a restaurant?

You agree to meet a deaf friend at a restaurant. You
arrive first before him, and you tell the waiter that
you are waiting for your friend.

The waiter does not understand you and gives you
a hard time. Even if you point to your watch and
tell him “5 minutes” the waiter still does not
understand you!

A BOX MAKES PEACE BETWEEN DEAF AND HEARING EMPLOYEES

A deaf man and a hearing man did not get along in
a workplace office. They were always arguing over many
things.

The hearing man was rude. He would confront the deaf
man, pointing to the mistake deaf man made with paperwork.
And the hearing man would not listen when the deaf man
tried to explain that it was not an error.

Then there was peace. How? The boss set up two boxes
on top of a table in the office. One box was for the
deaf employee. The other box was for the hearing employee.

If they wish to communicate or to pass papers with
each other, they put these in the box.
No more face to face. Just box to box.

Peace!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:

I was working exhibiting for the DeafBlind Equipment Distribution Program at
an Expo.

It was a busy place in a hospital with many other vendors.

There were a mixture of attendees: medical staff, social services workers,
Deaf and hard of hearing people and so on.

I hired an interpreter to do tactile interpreting for the day.

When I did direct tactile ASL with a visitor, an interpreter will need to
stand by.

However, I experienced interpreters wondering off somewhere while I was
busy.

The result was that I often was left standing alone without support or
information about whether anyone had come to my table.

Some important details were missing in this situation.

Interpreters should use touch signals on my back or arm to let me know
she/he leaves my side.

That happened a little too much that day and left me feeling helpless!

Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
