Do You Hear Yourself

| Learning | May 24, 2013

(My roommate and I are deaf and the entire dorm staff is aware of it. We usually order food online and once they come, the front desk usually alerts us by emailing, texting us or using Facebook to tell us. I have just ordered food and noticed I have not been informed yet so I went to desk downstairs.)

Me: “Hi!” *writes on pad* “Can you call [pizza chain] for me? I’d like to ask about my order.”

Front Desk Man: “They already left 10 or 15 minutes ago.”

Me: “What?! Why wasn’t I alerted?”

Front Desk Man: “I went upstairs to your room and I knocked on the door. Nobody answered.”
