First Date

She already knew the result of the meeting.

Men on the dating site asked her to meet them thinking that her disability will cross out theirs. But they realise their mistake within ten minutes of the ‘conversation’.

Considering that this date was ‘normal’…

She found him waiting outside the venue. He sheepishly gestured the ‘signs’ with hands. They said, “Please bear with my clumsiness with ‘signs’. I started learning recently so that we could understand each other.”

Dumb Excuses

“This girl is the best candidate for the job.”

“But did you see her hearing aid?”

Tiny Story: Muted

There was a bounce in her steps as she walked home after accepting the job offer with a reputed company. She finally had a chance!

Reaching home, she eagerly gestured to her mother. After a few seconds of silence, her mother raised her head and said, “Dumb as you are, has the new job crippled you as well? Get to work.”
