Arghhh. I have been asked to submit a log of my communication support needs at work so they can review my support and adjust it if necessary. They always think I ask for too much but I always stand my ground and argue back.
What *really* annoyed me this time was the sample log sheet they sent me with simple instructions. It was so patronising that I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Do these people really think I’m THAT stupid, just because my hearing’s not perfect? Hey, my brain’s fine, thank you! I was soooo tempted to send it back with a note saying ‘Hey! You’re discriminating against me as there is no picture of a Hearing Dog on the form’. I queried whether they expected me to log every phone call I made and received. Oh yes they did.
