This week’s ASL video in youtube
HEARING PEOPLE REJECT CAPTIONS AT A VERY LOUD RESTAURANT
    Many hearing people complain that many restaurants
are very loud – loud music, loud conversation, loud
noise from the kitchen, etc.
    Yet, the restaurant TV sets are not captioned! Why?
Hearing people refuse captions even though they can’t
hear the TV voices because of loud restaurant!
    It is strange.

BITTER DEAF MAN CANNOT KEEP HIS MOUTH SHUT
    A deaf man worked for a long time for a deaf-owned
company.
    The company lost its contract with the government
and had to lay off the deaf employee (and also other
hearing employees) in that department.
    The deaf employer wanted to rehire him under a
new government contract.
    The angry deaf man could not keep his mouth shut
and continued to say bad things about the deaf
employer.
    The deaf employer won a new contract. But the
deaf man (because of his bad mouthing) was not
rehired!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
I was working outside in the bright sunshine!
I was sanding our deck railings to prepare to put on fresh paint.
I left my hearing aids off to protect them from collecting dust while
sanding.
I was not aware some people were trying to get my attention and
communicate.  That didn’t work!
When I came in the house to check the time, there was no way I could read
the clock!
Having Usher Syndrome, takes a lot of time to adjust from outdoors to
indoors.
I guess I need to install a sun dial on my lawn to read the time!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
