So as horrible as lying is sometimes you just gotta do it, especially since I’m already going to hell.
Right now I’m living in Grand Cayman and everyone here has really thick Jamaican accents. Well one day I’m at the liquor store and this guy comes up to me and says something that I could not understand for the life of me. I ask him to repeat himself and by the third time I say what I tell him that I’m hard of hearing and ask him to speak louder. Then he just looks at me me and says “really” and even after he slows down and says it louder I still cannot make out what he’s saying.
My roommate then walks over to us and he asks her if I’m deaf and she turns and looks at me and says, “Her? No” and I swear to god I turned bright red, and that doesn’t happen to me because I’m black. Anyways lesson learned don’t ever tell someone you’re deaf when you aren’t.
