Deaf Culture/Humor

Walk through
Image credit: ?

Contrary to common belief, hearing people are usually surprised to learn that they interrupt Deaf people's conversations (if they stand apart from each other) when they stop in front of them instead of walking through. A common scenario is in the hallway where Deaf persons stand apart from each other against the walls and chat while hearing people walk by. Of course, don't walk through when two Deaf persons stand close to each other.
