Here’s the thing. I’m not too old and I’m not that young but sometimes the world can really make you feel like a retard. I’m talking about people who talk to damn fast or too damn low. What is your deal exactly? Are you trying to sabotage the conversation!
I’ll admit it, I use to talk uber fast and wave my hands all over the place. –A, use to tell me I wave my hands a lot. But turns out it’s a necessity with people who don’t speak up! My career is entirely based on working with the elderly. So I have learnt that my old childhoods ways had to change. I can’t talk too fast or speak too softly or my older client base will simply reject me for our miscommunication. But my hand gestures are a must.
Now, the tables have turned. I hate fast talkers and low speakers. Who put a pot of coffee in your blood stream this morning! And who stole your vocal chords!I hate asking um, what did you say? I can’t hear you and I missed that.
No, I’m not deaf, No I’m not retarded and Yes, my primary language by birth is English. Funny now I alienated or cazy but everyone else is normal. What am I in the Twilight Zone?
And Go Home.
