GESTURE LANGUAGE OR PANIC LANGUAGE
    Some hearing people use gestures when communicating with
the deaf. These gestures are often easy to follow and
understand.
    But some hearing people use PSL. It means Panic Sign
Language. These hearing people panic and wave their hands
or wave their fingers up in the air. This is Panic Sign
Language.
    Do we understand Panic Sign Language? No!

BEST WAITER IN ROCHESTER
    At one time years ago, there was a waiter that worked
at the best Italian restaurant in Rochester, NY. He
was deaf and was a student at NTID/RIT.
    He earned more tips than all other hearing waiters.
His eyes were sharp and he did everything to make
hearing dining patrons happy.
    Who was that deaf waiter? It was Roberto Wirth,
who owns Hotel Hassler, the best hotel in Rome, Italy
and one of the best in the world!
