DeafDigest – 15 June 2018

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – June 15, 2018


— learning ASL one image at a time

Chad Krohn, Rochester, NY has a deaf mother and
a father who is ASL interpreter. He has come up
with an idea to teach ASL – by showing students
one SnapChat image at a time. Hope it is
successful. Years ago a hearing employee
asked DeafDigest editor to teach her ASL.
The editor sent her one sign language web image
link per day. This went on for a few days
until the hearing woman lost interest! Maybe
the Snapchat approach is better. A picture

— sickening movie plot

A new movie has been made. The plot is that a deaf
businessman fell in love with a hearing woman. He
does not want the hearing woman to know of his
deafness. While trying to ask the hearing woman
for a date, he plays games with her to make her
unaware of his deafness. The movie name is
“Kattu Kathe” and it has been filmed in – India!
People in India laugh at these sick deaf plots while
Americans think it is not funny at all.


— hope it never happens at Lowe’s

Lowe’s, the national hardware chain, has stopped
the policy of checking all customers’ receipts.
That means all customers walk out the store
after making their purchases (or possibly not
making these purchases, just looking around).
The scary part is that if the security officer
thinks a deaf person is shoplifting if he
walks outs with no purchase, he may yell 
“stop.” Deaf person may not respond, and 
security officer then gets physical with him!
