Hello Everybody. I'm in the process of moving to Palm Springs, CA. This is like a dream to me. But I'm a little worried and looking for thoughts/advice. First a little background of me. Im in my 40s and have worn a hearing aid all of my life. I am totally deaf in my left ear. Severe to profound in my right but with the aid I do well. Im best in one on one situations. I have had office jobs all of my life sitting behind a desk. No big deal. I can read lips ok if you dont have facial hair and keep your hands away from your mouth. With that said, I'm relocating to Palm Springs, CA next month. It is mostly a resort/hospitality industry. Funny, but my dream is to be a bartender. My confidence is a little low because if I work in a bar and the boom boom boom music is so loud, I can't hear the customer. If I become a waiter/server... people tend to speak quiet. How do I deal with all of this? Yes. I took a bartending course and did well, but it was in a controlled environment. The other thing is at times Im an introvert, but I do like people. My fear is not hearing and customers looking at me like Im stupid. Does anyone know of a deaf bartender/deaf server? Thanks much!
