My deaf friend and I went to 2 different stores signing, voice off just to see what they’d do.
First store we went to… they were really accommodative! Did paper and pen, was patient just Deaf friendly. We applause them.
Now the 2nd store… not so much. We were signing, voice off as usual. Then we stopped and signed. My friend was in lipreading view. She saw 2 of the sales clerk talking… Sales Person 1: Sign Language is so weird. Why is there such a thing.
Sales Person 2: I know like wtf.
When my friend told me about this …
“Hearing people why must you be assbutts! Just fucking be respectful”
First of all… say that when we are gone. Not when the 2 deaf people Who BTW can have some residue hearing and lipread!
