Some Are Born Deaf To Manners

(We employ a deaf, hard-working lady at our restaurant.)

Customer: *agitated* “Excuse me, are you the manager?”

Me: “Yes, sir, how can I help you?”

Customer: “That employee over there ignored me. I asked for help, even yelled, and she just walked right by. She is rude!”

Me: “Sir, she is deaf.”

Customer: “That doesn’t matter! Your employees must answer when I call!”

Me: “Sir, she is deaf. She can’t hear you at all. Even if you got her attention, she wouldn’t respond unless you use sign language or let her read your lips.”

Customer: “Well, then why does she work here?”

Me: “Because she is a hard worker and does her job well.”

Customer: “Well, you shouldn’t hire rude people!”

Me: *shaking my head*
