Rude or just can’t hear?

Most people don’t know what they should do when told of a hearing loss. You probably do this, but saying what others in the group need to do to be sure you can hear is always helpful. We need to be very specific.

I have been told to , "Stand in front of me so I can see your face so I can read your lips." or "Talk to me on my right side because I can't hear in my left ear." or "I didnt hear what you said, would you repeat that." I have never been offended, but rather pleased that the person was interested to communicate.
This could possibly be because I live we have a large deaf population and there is a cumminity awareness. I might imagint it is different in a community where hearing loss and deafness are not so common.
