Deaf To Reason, Part 6

| Right | February 10, 2016

(Our store has a deaf employee. He is really nice and works hard. He usually sticks to working in the back but every so often, he will be on the floor, stocking.)

Customer: “Excuse me, sir?”

(Our deaf coworker doesn’t reply.)

Customer: “I SAID, EXCUSE ME, SIR!”

(I hear this and poke my head around the corner, seeing who he’s talking to.)

Me: “Can I help you, sir?”

Customer: “Yeah, can you tell me why you people just ignore your customers here?”

Me: “He’s not ignoring you, sir. He’s deaf. What can I help you with?”

Customer: “DEAF?! What he h*** kind a place are you running here giving those people jobs?!”

Me: *completely shocked* “Well, I assume he has bills to pay just like the rest of us hearing folk.”

(By this time, my coworker has noticed we are there and starts smiling and waving. The customer just flips him the bird and glares at me as he walks off mumbling about how he’s never coming here again. My coworker looks bewildered and I just shrug. He laughs.)
