Today, I tried helping an old lady with her groceries. When I asked if she needed help she smiled. When I took one of her bags she yelled. I didn't know she was deaf. FML

I'm Deaf and I actually voted FYL because it's her own fault for just smiling. When you said something to her she should have made some signal that she didn't understand.

what kind of sock-butt would click YDI??

#1... I'm sorry i don't speak complicated hand gestures... you apparently do... but only 11% of the US population has any use for it... and no one is gonna randomly walk up to some old lady and do... do whatever it is your saying to do. Most old ladies would look at you like an idiot then walk to the nearest police station, and say, "Their's some crazy person in the street making their hands dance" ... no I don't think that anyone is gonna do that. lol

You're an idiot! There are Deaf people all around you, it's people like you that repress them furthermore!

This is stupid...my grammar school had a deaf class in every grade and we learned sign language as a class...also you do t have to just walk up to someone and sign "help" you can say is and sign it at the same time...I do this all the time without even thinking...

#2, narrow man. -.-

Only 11% of the population? Gee... We should never try to communicate with people who don't speak our language. This is the most ignorant thing I've read all day. ASL is a language. Not "making your hands dance." Idiot.

in actuality, its fuckery of her life as she can't hear and all

Nice gesture at least!

It's not your fault, don't feel bad, I just don't get how it wasn't obvious you were trying to help

Yes it will, although technically it's just a fist not a thumbs up in BSL.
