A while ago, I was visiting my parents and the three of us went to this little bakery. I wandered off and browsed the pastries. My dad came up and told this worker who was talking to my back that I was Deaf... Her response? "OHH how CUUUUUUUUTE
!!" like I was a puppy.
My friends and I are playing a drinking game and swapping stories and I'm fresh out because I don't hang with hearing people almost ever soooo.. help me out!

I do change their attitudes as I encounter them. I honestly don't run into people every day that act rude or ignorant, but when I do, I do correct their attitude, if it is possible. I am new to your world, so I have only encountered this so much, but when I see it, I won't stand for it.
@LoveBlue "Botts and other don't like hearing people posting on this thread because it's supposed to be thread for deaf/Deaf people to post their frustrations with hearing people. It's ok for hearing people to read it, but they should not post in it.
BTW, nevermind is not a word. It's "never mind" - two words. So I wouldn't trust your spell check if it did not indicate that it was wrong."
I understand what you are saying that this thread is for Deaf and HOH people only however; I looked at the very top and I could not find anything that indicated it was only for Deaf and HOH so if I can't find it, neither can other people. And yes, I do spell never mind as nevermind, but that is how I learned to spell it and believe it or not, have an english dictionary that shows it this way. So perhaps there are two ways to spell it?
@Bottesini "Agreed and understand what you are saying. I realize the comment was not meant for me. I guess I was just a little surprised that you were beating someone up who was making an effort. I have no issues with you."
Again, I was not trying to offend anyone here. Just give us "hearies" some slack. Some of us are trying and not all of us are assholes.
The original post made it abundantly clear what this thread was for, not to mention the title itself.
And as for beating up someone, I just reversed what he was saying to deaf and turned it back to hearing.
Please be a little less emotional and more analytical.
