Disability: one size fits all [Oct. 6th, 2015|12:39 pm]

We are currently crossing a rather choppy Bay of Biscay.

When we checked in, and presented our ticket, we were asked, as we were on our outbound trip, whether we needed to park adjacent to the lift. We said no, but we know why they offered. The booking form asked whether either of us had any disability, and durham_rambler very sensibly replied that he is deaf, and that while his hearing aids mean that, as long as he is wearing them, you wouldn't necessarily notice this, once he has removed them (e.g. overnight) he will not hear you.

In an emergency, you need to know about this disability. But it does not impair his mobility.

Indeed.

Thing is, the hearing aids are both very effective and very discreet: the difference when he isn't wearing them is immense.
