It's really quite sweet...in order to communicate and be nice...you raise your voice...it's an instinctive move...
PRINT LARGER. I'M HARD OF HEARING.
I'm not sure, but probably. I definately start doing charades though.
It's awful...huh? Then someone who does it well puts us in our place...and I think...omg... I wish I was that cool...
lol. xD That GIF is hilarious.
Oh why in the hell would I do that...they ain't hard of hearing they just can't speak English. Yelling ain't gonna make them understand it any better.
It is something I have never done.
Just the opposite. I speak very quietly and quickly. if there is going to be a language barrier, I think the other person should speak slowly and loudly.
Also to elderly ppl...and perhaps the disabled...odd huh??
No, in such situations, I speak slowly and distinctly, and try to use elementary vocabulary as much as possible.
I would only speak louder if they seemed hard of hearing.
