From Deaf Till Dawn

Biggest pet peeve of mine is when someone knows I’m deaf and doesn’t look up at me when they’re speaking, they’re looking down at their phone or turning mid sentence or explaining something while looking the other way.  This happens far more often than I’d like to admit and it’s so frustrating to having to remind the person “Hey I’m deaf, can you repeat what you said but looking at me?”

It’s very challenging even with the assistive listening devices like hearing aids, they’re not perfect.
