One time, me and the missus was feeling peckish.
We'd fancied a takeaway...an indian takeaway. So we called up using trusty typetalk...
Operator has connected you...'Oh yes, please could we order some food?'
Indian guy says 'What?' are you for real?'
'Yes, Im for real and would like to order a number 22 and 14 please.'
Line suddenly goes quiet, but operator is still engaged with the Indian man.
Operator says 'I'm very sorry, the man was very rude and said deaf people don't like takeaways.'
'Im speechless for once..totally dumbstruck,' then blind anger kicks in a couple of seconds later.
'Thanks operator, I'll deal with this.'
So me and the missus jump in the car and hare down to the town centre like Starsky and Hutch with hearing aids whistling in tow.
We apprehend the guy at the takeway. He looks sheepish, turns and walks into the kitchen. Shouts followed with pots and pans flying.
The man returns a minute later. He says, 'Me very sorry, you order now and no pay ok?'
'Why did you say deaf peope don't like takeaways?' I ask.
' Indian man says ' Me say sorry, please order ok..please order.'
Some way to get a free takeway eh?
Deaf? then order your takeaway via typetalk and hope for the best. lol
