People who continue to try to talk to me even once they've found out I can't hear them.
Don't be one of these dicks. If a person who indicates they can't hear you, especially if they toss in the words "I'm deaf", don't speak louder, try to get in front of them so they can read your lips (you're an ass for assuming they have that skill, by the way), or ask them to stop what they're doing so you can write down a message.
Seriously, if a person indicated to you that they were blind, would you insist on showing them the picture you're holding up?
- If someone is truly deaf (or in my case can't hear certain tones or frequencies), they aren't going to hear you no matter how loud you talk. I mean, can you hear a dog whistle if I amplify it through a loud speaker?
- No wants to walk into a human wall. Do you like it when someone steps directly into your path, invading your personal space?
- Imagine what it would be like if you had to stop and wait for every person who wanted to say something to you to write it down. Then imagine if that something is as unimportant as 90% of what most people say to each other every day. You'd be annoyed, wouldn't you? So are we.
You're an asshat.
