Deaf To Reason, Part 10

, , , , | Right | October 15, 2019

(My mother works part-time at a big chain store as a second job to have some extra money since my brother got a car and is trying to find a job of his own. She is in her late 50s and needs hearing aids to hear clearly. The contraptions are nearly invisible as they are small and clear. She is working the register when a customer comes up to her. Note that the battery in her hearing aids has died at this time and it’s a little before my mom’s break. The customer puts the items on the belt and the transaction goes smoothly until near the end.)

Customer: *mumbling*

Mom: “Sorry, what was that?”

Customer: *more irritated mumbling*

Mom: “Ah, sorry, come again?”

Customer: *yelling now* “What are you, deaf or something?!”

(Mom, now fed up, reaches up and takes out one of her hearing aids.)

Mom: “As a matter of fact, I am.”

(The customer turned red in embarrassment, silently paid, and left with her items.)
