Does this count as embarrassing…..??

Being asked if I know sign language when trying to use a crutch out in public……I was still not understood even when using a crutch….and I was asked “do you know sign language??”

That really angered me–I certainly wish I had known sign language. When trying to use a crutch still made it hard to be understood…….I was dropping letters of some hard words that I had no clue I was going to stumble on. The clerk didn’t understand me when I tried the Lovett tactic…..
