Re "Did you Say" (issue 13)
In the bank recently a lady had difficulty understanding what the Cashier had asked her several times. She told them what she thought they wanted to know, but was still being asked the same question. The lady turned to the waiting customers and said she couldn't understand what they were saying as she didn't hear very well. Being partially deaf myself I felt for the lady. I faced her and repeated what the Cashier had asked and she was then able to answer. On realising her problem another member of the Staff took her into an office to talk to her. If staff of shops / banks etc could have a little Deaf Awareness training it would surely be beneficial to them and greatly appreciated by their deaf or hard of hearing customers.

Dear Madam. "Did you say" article in Issue 13 reminded me of an incident I witnessed recently between a lady at a Post Office Counter and the assistant behind the glass. The lady was having a little difficulty in hearing what the assistant was saying and asked her politely to repeat please, the assistant was looking down and mumbled another reply. The lady then asked to lift her head please as she couldn't hear what she had said. The assistant raised her head and her eyebrows, tutt, tutted loudly and said "Oh, never mind" in such a manner that I was disgusted with her attitude and felt that a little staff training would not come amiss, lots of us, young and old have a hearing loss and one day it might be you. Because you can't see their problem of 'hearing loss' it is ignored, sadly.
Yours sincerely, Mrs Stevenson
