Today, I was texting a guy that one of my friends told me about. She gave me his number and told me about how he was deaf. Three hours into great conversation I forgot and asked him what his favorite music was. FML

Omg !! Something like this happened to me a couple hours ago. I was playing a game and asked this girl to tell me a good song..she replied with 'im deaf' :( i know how you feel. And i hate that feeling >.<

A lot of deaf people actually really enjoy music. If they turn it up loud enough they are able to feel the vibrations from the music, especially the drums.

Shit happens. At least you had remorse.

116 ya the girl told me she could feal it! Thats pretty cool.

Governor I quite enjoy watching you snap at people who correct you, so here goes. It's feel*. Pretty sure feal is not a word, considering it keeps getting autocorrected to deal.

Wait, I thought when your deaf your bot able to talk because you can't hear yourself speak?

Sorry that was a mistake . In the one that got so many thumb downs i spelled it right. ...i was gonna snap at you cause in The first comment i spelled it right i didnt realize about the other comment. I know how to spell feel -.-

Beethoven in his later years was deaf and continued to compose based off the vibrations of a piano c:

Deaf people can talk. It's harder to learn because, yes, they can't hear, but I have several friends who are deaf and they can both speak and read lips to know what I am saying without signing

Deaf people can actually listen to music. They can feel the vibrations and if the music is really loud. Not all deafness is hearing nothing. Some people can hear little sound. I can hear some.

he likes Beethoven. It's a relatability thing

Well that could have happened to anyone

Unless you already knew they were deaf.

Every deaf person I know enjoys music

It's like this one time when I was about to fall asleep and I started thinking how do deaf people hear their phones ringing? Then I came to the conclusion that it must be a combination of vibration and visual help and when I was happy with my answer I realized deaf people don't talk on the phone >.<

Deaf people do talk on the phone. Before there was texting, there was TTY and relay. The phone would flash a strobe light when a call was coming in.

Id hate to be deaf and epileptic

Yep, they also have rigs in their houses that flash when someone rings the doorbell.

I don't think it's such a big deal

If you constantly flash your rig, won't you eventually get arrested for indecent exposure?

That was DEAFinatly akward.

That isn't punny.

It was very punny.

Thanks for the feedback

When you put it in capital letters in hope everyone will realise what you did it, it just ruins it. Us FML readers are smart enough to spot puns that are intended.

Unfortunately there is the audience that won't understand it and will just say "huh?"

Or the audience who will write; Definitely* after missing the joke/pun entirely.

3, Definitely** Oh, wait..

Deaf people still listen to music, they still enjoy the beat of the rhythm..

20 - sometimes a pun needs to be capped.

And sometimes 20 needs to be bitchslapped.

I was thinking the same thing!!!

Everyone screws up sometimes.. Like trying to explain colors to blind people.

Colour blind people know what colour is what, they are taught that. It's just that they can't see very well, can't see one or more colours or have a really hard time determining the colour. My cousin is colour blind only for red. He sees every other colour on the spectrum just fine.

Thanks for the book bro.

Your presentation is fucked up.

37, You ought to reread 5's comment because he ays "trying to exlain colours to blind people." He said nothing of colour blind people, so you're aurgument is invalid.

she said blind people. not color blind people.

(Before anyone harps me for it, said**, explain**, and argument**. It's only three AM, and I've been rudely awakened twice by a screaming baby.)

I agree with 77 ^^

No, he said the right you're.

no he said the wrong one... you're is you are... are you suggesting he meant to say 'so you are argument is invalid'?? case closed waffle

88- No he used the wrong version of it.. It is "your". Otherwise it would say "You are argument is invalid."

88 - did you mean to say the original poster used the right one? because you stated he used the wrong one and then explained how it was right :)

^^ i meant that for 93 not 88... time for bed

82, Shit... My bizzle, I thought I'd gotten them all. No more late might FMLing for me, I guess. Also, she** (:

124 - Night ^^

143, -_- I give up.. (Yay! No typos!)

deaf people can still feel the vibrations from the beats so really it was still a normal question....

Or when Peter Griffin performed magic to the blind.

Some deal people can still listen to music because they can feel the bass if it's loud enough

Like mozart. (idk how you spell his name, but the guy who wrote ode to joy)

That was Beethoven sir or mam

30 YOUR RIGHT. :( fail on my part

Yes but she was tone deaf. Not really deaf deaf

Just imagine a deaf person listening to hardcore dubstep that is practically 100% bass? Do you think they would think it's an earthquake?

15-I'm pretty sure you're referring to Ludwig Van Beethoven. Maybe I'm wrong, but if you're implying a famous composer, then it is Beethoven.

43, 30 established that, and 36 backed him up

Yeah I'm not sure how common it is but some deaf people still listen to music, I think it mostly tends to be those who became deaf rather than those born deaf. There's even a deaf dj called Frankie Wilde I think and he's quite good!

Although Beethoven did this, deaf people can still enjoy music with speakers placed on the floor. It's done at the local deaf school here for their dances.

Deaf people can still enjoy music, they can feel vibrations and such. He probably has a certain beat he likes :) I'm sure he understands.

I was thinking the same thing. Thank you, ABC family.(:

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.

Show it anyway

*you're. Don't forget about punctuation!

Im sure Op is quite healthy.

Your sick what? Dog? Grandma? Parakeet? In any case, I hope they feel better soon.

You're. You forgot to capitalize the y in you're.

*Your* stupid. (You're)

He likes DEAFtones of course

Well they are amazing and Chino does have some moves, like what you did there!

He didnt know that you knew he was deaf, or at least not from what I read. Just act like you didnt know.

I think telling the truth in this situation would be better. "sorry I was really enjoying the conversation and didn't realize what I had said till it was too late!" that's kind of flattering... At least I think so.

I don't work for sopa right?

It's okay. Not like you were trying to be mean or anything. Mistakes happen.
