As I’ve said before, I have a tendency to simcom at work — this is both a habit and an attempt to make my conversations accessible to all customers just in case they’re Deaf/HOH like I am and I just don’t know it yet. (As in I don’t see hearing aids/cochlear implants, because not all of us wear them; I don’t.)
Today a kid came in and his mom was like, “Did you just sign?”
And I said, “Yeah!”
She turned to one of her kids and says, “Look! She signed!”
And I saw the kiddo’s cochlear implants!
HE WAS SO PSYCHED AND TOLD ME ABOUT HIS BRAND NEW BLUE IMPLANTS. WHAT A DAY
