Who Said Deafness Was a Disability?

I had a thought yesterday whilst walking down a busy road. Deafness is an overrated disability. Having the ability to not hear traffic on a busy road is definitely an advantage, not a disadvantage. Cars don't keep you awake at night and more importantly, the house price is lower as most people don't want to live next to a major road.

There you have it - deaf people are able to buy lower-priced homes next to major shopping centres and arterial roads. So don't let a hearing-impaired person tell you, or use sign language, to say that they are disadvanted. Just turn a deaf ear to them.
