I don't give a **** what new pretty sign language you just learned. Stop wasting my time, goddamn it.
If I ****ing ask you for a pen and paper, give me one. Don't argue with me. In the time it takes for me to explain to you what I want, you could have gotten a ****ing pen and paper and all headache removed.
I have a title of a shop ****ing foreman for a reason. Nobody works for me, granted, so it's seen as nothing more than a ego stroke. But I did not have this title before, even when I was alone in the shop. I'm now the mother****ing foreman, because I'm a goddamn journeyman in my field. What? I'm 21? **** you, I'm better than you at this job.
People coming in and trying to act like they know my job. **** off. You just wasted 7 hours total across four people because you thought I was not doing my job correctly and you could do better. Ass.
When I said it was the best I could do, don't ****ing tell me you'll get someone else in a different trade to do it. Nobody does it better than me.
Stop acting like you lost something important. I'm better than the two people who ran the shop before me. Let's see you kissing my ass when that nasty ass job comes in, and I make it a hundred times easier for you. Brown nosing mothe****ers.
Goddamn it, I may be deaf, that doesn't mean I'm retarded. Don't baby talk me. "You sure? Me bye-bye now" with hand guestures and exagerrated facial expressions. Next person who does that gets a broken nose.
Don't ****ing point a loaded paintball gun at me, CO2 in or not. I care not if you think the safety is on.
Stop pity-inviting me to things. If you think I'll be a pain in the ass to deal with in a large group of people, then don't invite me. You'll make me feel like an ******* for saying yes, and you will have a bad time.
**** people and their deaf-fetish. Don't ****ing hit on me just because I told you I was deaf, for gods sake. It's irritating.
**** people who want to be my friend to show me off to others. I'm not a puppet. You want to know why I don't talk to people easily? This is why.
Next person who asks me how to cuss in sign language as their first signs, gets a broken nose.
Next person who tells me they know sign language, and proceeds to fingerspell, gets ten broken fingers.
Look! Look! There are other people signing! *drags me over to them* Hi! This guy is deaf too! Gets a broken neck. No kidding? Deaf people are not some big happy orgy of friends. You don't try to be friends with every person you meet, I don't try to become friends with every deaf person I meet. It's not rocket science.
Don't tickle me, you ****ing *******. You may be gay, but I'm not. So ****ing stop it. I say hi to you because I'm a nice guy, not because I want to **** you.
Druggies and alcholics need to go kill themselves.
Next time a minority whines about how hard they've got it, I'll ****ing remove your head from your ****ing ass, and bitch slap you. I'll tell you why.
Don't ****ing talk as if I'm not a person. If I'm talking to someone, don't just walk in and talk over me. It's not like I talk quietly, I have the loudest ****ing voice on the planet because I can't lower it. So you know I was talking, *******.
Hey, assholes. I can read your ****ing lips. Don't ****ing talk about me without telling me. My being deaf is not a license to talk around me what you don't want me to hear.
Yeah you, I can see you making fun of something I do unconsciously. I read those lips of yours across the room.
Thank ****ing god I'm born in a family where I can get a job through it. I was just talking to some friends of mine who work in a assembly line factory that live together, 4 people in an apartment. I know quite a few of them.
Don't talk all ****ing idealistic with me. I know the reality of being a deaf person, you don't. Stop ****ing acting like you could do it if you were deaf because you tried hard. You couldn't. You wouldn't know where to begin. You wouldn't even get a ****ing chance. You'd walk into the room, say you're deaf, and you'd be rejected on the spot. Nothing you could do about it. No "OMG YOU"RE A DEAFIST". No affirmative action to your benefit. Not a single ****ing thing. And nobody would even give a ****. Why? Because our deafness is not obvious. There's nothing to identify a deaf person from a hearing person unless he is signing or tells you.
You've got it hard? Bah. Cry me a ****ing river. Once again, thank god I'm born into a great family. That rant was for every deaf person I ever knew growing up, who got abandoned by families and sent off to deaf schools to live in dorms until graduation because they don't want to go through the hassle of raising a deaf child. Who are born into deaf families of assembly line workers, who work for minimum wage or even lower than that. I felt like **** being the only kid with the cool stuff in the entire school.
**** you, deaf boy who was supposed to be my apprentice 3 years ago. I gave you a ****ing chance, and you blew it within a week. How do you like your 5.25 wage now? You could have been earning 20-50 a hour like me. Now I can't give anyone else a chance, because of you. ****er.
No no no Shehab, you need to spell it slower or he won't understand because of the deaf mentally retarded thing (*)!
Hoow aarrre youuuuu doooing?
* The mentally retarded thing incidentally applies to anyone with any disability at all. Like that guy in the wheelchair, what's his name, Hawkings - yeah, total retard cuz he's in a wheelchair. Or people with tourettes, also need to talk slowly and use simple words. Or people who stutter. Or limp.
Sadly it should be noted the people who believe this are also clinically unable to precieve sarcasm, although once you have reduced the room to subzero temperature some sarcasm may be able to penetrate their brain.
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
I don't make any special changes in my speech or actions for deaf or blind people. If they can't understand me then they shouldn't be ****ing talking to me to begin with.
However, there is this HOT HOT HOT deaf chick here at work. She always stops to talk to me because I simply TALK to her. I don't raise my voice or talk slow or lean down like a freaking retard. I simply talk normal, make sure I move my lips and don't mumble and I always keep my face turned towards her so she can see what I'm saying. I understand her just fine and she understands me as well.
I haven't aimed a loaded paintball gun at her head, however.
Not to derail the rant or anything, but are their families with inherited deafness that are recruited for factory work?
Well, considering that they'd be able to work in very loud places without the hearing loss associated with such work... as long as they're being paid the same rate as anyone else doing a similar job, I'd say that's fair
It just seemed kinda weird that someone would think to make something people would see as a handicap and turn it into a plus. Usually human beings aren't that smart.
Of course on the other hand, when they put our modular office together, they had midget riveters underneath (very few back injuries), and they hire them to clean the air ducks (ever see a midget in a moonsuit and breathing gear).
And I can definately see advantage, I used to go through a ton of earplugs during my summer jobs in plants.
Yes its a plus for stalkyr to work in our sheetmetal shop, I swear if i had to cut another piece of ductmate I would stick my head under the bansaw and end it all. Those things can make your ears bleed.
The downside is if i'm in the shop i cant tell him to stfu he's making to much noise out there cause he cant tell :/
Nocte finger spelled WTF, and then STFU for the person that doesnt know how the sign language alphabet.
