Hello again, I want to talk about deaf peddlers. My dad and mom love to host the party such as potluck, poker, etc. at our home when I am a little boy. I remember when my dad invites many strange friends. Really wow. I ask my dad that I know some and did not know some. Where did they come from? He says they come from different states. I puzzle and say why did they come here in Chicago? He says, well some people work printer, you know ITU printer, and deaf peddlers. I puzzle myself again, I say what is deaf peddler? Can you tell me what it means? My dad says oh, ok deaf peddlers sell things to people such as ABC’s card or pencil or something else. The people pay 25 cents, 50 cents or a dollar, it depends on people’s choice. I say oh, it is odd but my dad says, it is important to respect deaf peddlers. They are nice and cool people. I go to residential school, many of my friends know that my dad and mom are good friend with deaf peddlers. My friends make fun of me because I am friend with deaf peddlers. My heart is broken but my dad is not peddler as he works Oscar Mayer as foreman. My mom works as a part time job because she takes care of me when I am a little boy. So, I go and talk to my dad that my friends make fun of me because I am friend with deaf peddlers as my heart is broken. My dad says, wait a minute, I don’t care about them as my deaf peddlers are my friends. It is important to respect them, it does not matter what kind of job they work. I remember his words.
Many years later until my dad and mom are gone. I work for one company, what happen is that it downsizes. There is a few people out there but I happen to be old in that company so they put me to the personnel office to clean up the files before the company closes for good. I clean the file and my mind pops out, I remember my dad’s saying ‘Important to respect deaf peddlers’. At first, I don’t get what my dad really means but now I get it. Look, many people live on welfare or public aid. They go to the office to fill up the paperworks that they say they can’t find a job at all. They get money and food stamps. When they get home and do nothing, they have good times. Now look at deaf peddlers, they go to the store to buy things. The next day, they sell and earn the money, probably 20 or 30 dollars for a day. The next day, again they get up in the early morning and start to sell it. They earn really small money and add up each days to make living, support their family, maybe just him/herself. Now, by the way, I wonder why many deaf people talk negative about deaf peddlers. Hold a minute, they really work hard and make living. You know, selling things to earn the money while welfare or public aid people are lazy and do nothing. They wait for 6 or 12 months to fill up the paperworks. They have no money, they don’t have a job while the deaf peddlers work hard and sell things. And the people still talk negative about deaf peddlers. I do not understand, you agree with me? that the deaf peddlers really work hard. Please leave the comment. Thank you.
