Audist are not welcome
But the mother was there and she accepted it. Isn't that teaching her child to take freebies or that because he is a "special needs" child, he deserves freebies?Never got a darn thing......I'm too proud to take charity, I guess. And so many...so many!! hearing people I know are baffled that I don't get Food Stamps, saying..."but you are Deaf"!...
If my boys came home with some expensive shoes, and I didn't pay for them, I'm gonna question that....
It's called a doohicky... It's commonly called a tilde, but if you google it, you'll see other names for it. (on one page someone did call it a doo-hicky).Love Blue, how did you get the doohicky over the n and what is it called?
Ah, thanks, that was interesting. I wish there was a place on the pc keyboard for all those foreign doo hickies!It's called a doohicky... It's commonly called a tilde, but if you google it, you'll see other names for it. (on one page someone did call it a doo-hicky).
My Macbook Air automatically put it there when I spelled senora then sent to select the correct spelling. I believe there are ways to do it yourself...need to look it up.
I've done the same thing over the years. Used to use disabled discounts on Amtrak as well as for the Washington Metro. Most times they let me board if I accidentally get in the first group to board and I tell them why.No, no hand outs, but I have taken advantage of "special" treatment.
I get a disability discount on Amtrak for coach fare.
I have also, without asking, been allowed to pre-board airplanes. In these cases, all I did was let the gate agent know that I was deaf/HoH and where I would be sitting in case there were any important announcements that I may not hear. They offered me the option to board with the other pre-boarders and I've taken them up on their offer. I do not expect this to happen every time I fly, but I will continue to notify the gate agents of my poor hearing so that I hopefully won't miss any important messages.
Thanks, Ducky, for that information, will save it! Sorry about getting off topic.There is in a way--
there are two ways I know of to get that n... char
1. in Windows, click on start button then enter Character Map in the search bar then select character map. Select the character you want and copy/paste it---> ñ
2. a bit of an easier way is to use alt codes-- alt 0241 (hold down the ALT key and type in 0241 then release). ñ .. Caveat- you need to use the number pad on the right of the keyboard.
