CLASS IN A DARK ROOM
A deaf student attends classes at a hearing
college, with interpreters.
In one class, the classroom is dark. You cannot
see the interpreter. The professor refuses to turn
on the lights so that you an see the interpreter?
Discrimination? Yes, but why not attend Gallaudet
or NTID or CSUN?

CODA HATES THIS QUESTION
A Coda told DeafDigest that he hates this question
from his hearing friends.
The question is:

Why are you not deaf if your parents are deaf?

EASY JOB AT HEARING CONVENTION BOOTH
Could a deaf person successfully sell stuff at a
booth at a hearing convention?
One deaf person did. She sold books and put the
price of book on front cover of each book.
There is no communication required. Hearing
people would just pick up the book they want
and pay for it.

walk-away-from-hearing

TO ACCEPT HEARING PEOPLE OR TO AVOID THEM
Many deaf people hate it when hearing people
come to them, trying to get into a conversation.
This is why many deaf people walk away when
hearing people come to them. Too much hassle in
trying to lipread or to write notes or to use
gestures.
But – we may never know? You walk away from
a hearing person that could have been a great
contact for you – such as a better job offer!
Or maybe it is a scout for a movie, looking
for a perfect character for a new movie!
