hey guys I need advice on turning a small disadvantage into a positive. For the longest time, I didn't think it was a problem, but now I think it may be a reason I've had no game at bars/clubs the past few years.
After spending 8 years working in a manufacturing plant, I've become slightly tone deaf. I'm not hearing impaired by medical standards. But if I'm in a noisy restaurant, or a bar/club with a band or a DJ playing music, I'm practically oblivious to conversations around me. The only way I can hear when in those situations, is if they talk almost directly in my ear.
The past few days I've thought, "how do I get around this?" I've thought about handing one of those magnetic magic boards around my neck flava flav style, but I'm thinking that's too cheesy.
Any other ideas? Thoughts? Comments?
