Dear Deaf Family,

Although you may not have been physically able to hear the middle school choir concert very well tonight, it is still good concert etiquette to not talk during the performance. In a gymnasium packed like sardines, your exuberant sign language is just as distracting as if you'd been talking aloud.

Oh, and by the way, don't assume that people don't know your language.

Next time turn up your hearing aides and enjoy the misery like the rest of us.

I hope I don't See you at the Christmas concert,

I wish I could say it was a "deaf thing" but the truth is parents in general can be clueless when it comes to school performances, especially when their kid is not on stage. I also have a pet peeve for young children who are allowed to run amok within full eye and ear-shot of the performance.
