Not Hearing What Your Seeing

, , , | Working | February 11, 2020

(A customer comes over to me. He’s deaf and I don’t sign, so we talk by writing on a notepad. My manager watches, and as I help them find their items and check out, we don’t speak a word, for obvious reasons. After they leave, he comes over.)

Manager: “Wow, did he piss you off? You didn’t say a word!”

Me: “He’s deaf. Talking wouldn’t have done anything for him.”

Manager: “Oh.”
