I did something similar, and the man I was communicating with was visibly surprised and delighted. He immediately started signing so quickly I couldn't keep up, so I simply said that I hadn't practiced in awhile. He always smiled at me whenever I saw him after that.
#77- It's not so much the special treatment, but rather having people speak AT you like you're a child or mentally handicapped. The deaf guy was probably thinking, "Yeah, I fucking know. You're wearing a name tag. Just, because I can't hear doesn't mean I can't read." It gets tedious.
And thats when Id show him another bit of sign language... With my middle finger. Yea, yea. Customer service...
