:rofl: THis is the most ironic thing.. It happened to me.. I asked them to repeat and they were like, "oh you cannot lipread?" but I did catch that sentence and said, "oh no I can lipread, just sometime when people mumble or speak too fast then it is all over my head... " but it sure made you feeling stupid that you totally missed the question due to the inability to lipread when the question was ABOUT lipreading and you CAN lipread!!


You know you are Deaf when... a hearing person waves and your head turns sharply to see if somebody wants to talk to you but you realize that that person isn't waving for your attention!
