Communication Service for the Deaf might be well known
in Sioux Falls, SD, but the airport people do not know it.
Apparently a huge throng of deaf people at the Sioux Falls
airport unnerved one airport ticket counter employee. She spoke
on the microphone, requesting that all deaf people report to her.
And when the deaf people naturally didn’t, she spoke up
again. An interpreter then came to the employee, explaining
the situation. Yet this ticket counter employee did not
understand what the interpreter was trying to say.
Fortunately for all involved, everything went on smoothly
and there were no incidents.
It took place in 2001.
