Me and my flatmates were down at the pub
and we fancied a go on the quiz machine, the one you can play "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" etc on. But we couldn't because there was this girl there playing on it non-stop. I remember us laughing at her (Norma-No-Mates jokes and such-like) and EVENTUALLY she went to the bar to get some change. We saw our chance and went to the machine and started playing. After about 1 game I could hear this persistent sniff coming from behind me. She was back, watching us play, being a bit too nosey if you ask me. She wasn't crying or anything. For the next few games, more and more sniffing. We decided to sod it and give her back her machine and went to leave. As we were walking out, I just couldn't help but start sniffing nice and loudly to mock her and was laughing to myself. I left the pub and started walking back to the flat. I then realised that I was on my own. I decided to carry on walking back home because we only live 40 seconds from the pub and I needed to relieve myself pretty badly. I was watching telly when five minutes later my flatmates returned. Apparently the girl's friends were at the bar having a drink and had heard my impressions. A burly bloke then informed us "It isn't funny, she's DEAF, ALRIGHT", leaving my friends feeling completely embarassed and unable to leave, only able to stand there looking sheepish and apologising for me...
