hmmm reminded me of something

How can you tell whether it's a language barrier or the person is just being an idiot?

  • Depends on the situation. My grandparents were immigrants and didnt speak much english but knew enough to get by. Sometimes they just pretended not to know what someone was saying if they thought THAT person was an idiot too LOL. So its a case by case basis I guess. When people treated my grandparents like idiots theyd act like idiots.

  • My husband is hearing impaired so with him it is a language barrier - unless of course you know sign language.
