DeafDigest – 25 June 2021

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – June 25, 2021

— the CDI and the hearing confusion

A CDI (Certified Deaf Interpreter) interpreted
at a public event. Hearing people in the audience,
having no idea, what is a CDI, was confused on
why would there be a hearing and a deaf interpreter
working together at the same time!

Said a CDI:
I get strange expressions and questions, wondering
how could I interpret if I am deaf.

Comes with the territory, says DeafDigest.

— not a joke; a Deaf Fear of barbers

You are deaf and you go to a barber, asking for a
special haircut. The barber, completely misunderstoods
you and gives you a very bad, and a very wrong haircut!
This scene was part of a short film “Waves” as played by
actor Omete Anassi. Is he deaf actor or a fake-deaf
actor? Do not know.
