Last night at the gym I asked a woman on the neighboring elliptical machine if she minded me turning up the volume on the TV and as the words were coming out of my mouth I noticed she was wearing a hearing aid and THAT'S why the volume was down and closed captioning was turned on. How do you recover from that? I'll tell you how, YOU DON'T.

My coworker was talking really loud to her kid on the phone in the breakroom and when she got off I blurted, "Gosh, is your kid deaf or something!" Her response, "Actually yes. She has to wear cochlear implants." The fact that she doesn't hate me still boggles me to this day.
