Deaf To Your Blindness

| Friendly | April 21, 2014

(Two older, tenured professors have been friends for many, many years, and they’re working on a large professional association committee, planning a conference. One of the association administrators is making sure every single one of the 200+ programs has a committee member present at the program during the conference.)

Administrator: “[Faculty #1], for all your programs [Student] will be your assistant. She’s over there in the corner.”

Faculty #1: “Hold on. Let me put my glasses on so I can hear.”

Administrator: “You need your glasses to hear?”

Faculty #2: *from across the room* “Don’t be sitting over there acting like you can hear! I’ve always been your eyes!”
