Most people would never know I am technically classified as "deaf."  I have no hearing in my right ear, and limited hearing in my left from a childhood accident. Ever wondered what partially deaf people wish you knew? Here's the goods from an article I wrote last year.

How To Talk To Someone With A Hearing Loss

I recently read a study that found that those who suffer from some degree of hearing loss may actually have less-satisfying relationships. As someone who's been completely deaf in her right ear since approximately age 2, I found this really surprising.
 
It might as a surprise to you to learn that I'm partially deaf -- after all, I'm great at compensating for it. Seeing as there are nearly 50 million Americans (and nearly 9 million Britons) who are classed as deaf, partially deaf, or hard of hearing, chances are you're going to know a few in your lifetime. Here are a couple of simple rules to follow that help tremendously...
 
1) Don't shout, but don't mumble.
Try speaking with a clear voice and articulate your words if you can. If they're partially deaf, let them pick their seating first. I'll always try to place myself where I can hear you best. 
 
2) That joke isn't funny anymore.
Believe me. I've heard them all. From you cleverly saying "What?" when I speak to you, to the good old fashioned "Deaf in one ear and can't hear out the other" gag. Really, it's not amusing. Would you laugh at a guy in a wheelchair or mock a blind person? No? Then maybe you shouldn't do that to other folks with handicaps. 
 
3) Don't look away and/or cover your mouth.
Most deaf or partially hearing people read lips as a back-up. I know I do. If you cover your mouth while you're speaking, you're taking away one of the ways I have to understand you.
 
4) I'm deaf, I'm not ignoring you.
You've just dropped a hilarious joke or some great gossip and I haven't responded at all. Chances are, I didn't hear you. Don't be afraid to get my attention. I want to hear what you have to say.
 
5) Never say "Nevermind."
Nothing makes a deaf or partially-hearing person feel more like a tool than having to ask you to repeat yourself over and over again, but I wouldn't ask if I didn't want to hear it. I know it's annoying, but be patient with me.
 
Want to know more? Visit http://www.actiononhearingloss.org.uk or http://www.nad.org/.
Changing the world for people who are deaf or have a hearing loss. Action on Hearing Loss is the new name of RNID, the largest charity representing the 10 million people who are deaf or have a hearing loss in the UK.

To be honest, I never thought I'd be the kind of person that would write a review about a storage place, but Public Storage in Sandy Springs deserves a little bit of love. We were helped by the awesome Raymond, who was easygoing, funny and made move-in a breeze. No matter what stupid question we had, he was patient and nice about it. We actually looked at the storage place up the road before we made the decision (who, it turns out, were cheaper by a few bucks) yet still went with Public Storage just because Raymond was so nice. If you've got to store something and you're in the area? Go see Raymond. He's the man.
