Top stories about the deaf:

a hearing front desk person said that his first impulse
upon learning of customer’ deafness is to shout louder
and louder and louder, even when the deaf person repeatedly
points to his ear. After maybe 10 loud shouts, he finally
realizes customer’s inability to understand loud voices!
In the meantime this hearing person attracts unwanted
attention from hearing people around him.

HEARING PERSON HATES DEAF SUPERVISOR
Why do many hearing employees hate to
be supervised by a deaf supervisor?
They like the deaf person as a social
friend – yet when that same deaf person
is a supervisor, these hearing people
get angry about it.
Why?

BREAKING A LAW IN ROME

, in Italy, is one of the world’s great
cities. It is very popular with tourists.

Yet, many restaurants in Rome break the
law.

Menus must be posted on the wall. Many
restaurants don’t – and if the restaurant
staff can’t speak English, it can be difficult
for deaf tourists!

This week’s ASL video in youtube:
http://deafdigest.com/videos/rome-restaurants/

note:
DeafDigest editor was a dining guest of Roberto Wirth,
at his Hotel Hassler. He told Wirth about the
incident at a small Rome restaurant, which served
great dishes, but no one spoke English nor
posted the menu on the wall. Wirth, not
surprisingly, was furious – saying it is the
law to have menus posted.
