Please Save My Ears!

It is a constant source of amusement to me that sighted people seem to think we "blindies" are all deaf too.

You know. You go into a store or office. An assistant will saay hello, offer help. See your white cane as you ask their assistance and then yell "OVER! THERE!" and helpfully wave their arms as if immitating a windmill in a hurricane.

I don't mind the arm waving too much, unless I am carrying a hot drink in my hand. But the shouting? Oi that bit gets hard on the ears very quickly. I have had my ears whistle for minutes after some encounters.

It happens so often that I have even come up with a hoodie designed to inform the shouter that I am not deaf. The Blind not Deaf Hoodie   also  has the added benefits that if they do shout you can pull up the hood to afford some wear protection and you get to stay warm and taosty all day long.

The shirt is available in a wide range of styles, colors and men and women's fittings.
