20 DEAF COMMUNITY STEREOTYPICAL ALCOHOL INDUCED COMMUNICATION ERRORS WHEN SIGNING WITH A DRUNK PERSON

1. deaf,…

My sister is HoH with degenerative hearing and will eventually be completely deaf, but when she’s drunk she will switch between verbally speaking and signing. It’s hilarious when she’s around people other than her husband/our family and they don’t sign because she’ll get increasingly frustrated when people can’t keep up with the signing and verbal words until she remembers most people don’t sign. Then she flushes all the way up to her ears and immediately drunkenly stumbles away from the social situation.
