11 Things I Wish I couldn't Hear

1. That kid that throws a continual temper tantrum while sitting in a shopping cart
2. The cars with the overly loud car engines that are not supposed to be that way
3. The people that yell at you because they think since you can’t see you must be deaf too
4. The people that talk to you like you’re two because you can’t see even though you are a full grown adult
5. The people in your life who seem to have never ending gas and love to share it with everyone (would also qualify for things I wish I couldn’t smell)
6. A child back talking until you as the parent reach the point of OMG! I’m going to beat my head against the wall just so I don’t have to listen to this anymore
7. The sound of crows in the morning when you’re camping and trying to sleep
8. The car horn that honks right next to you and makes you jump out of your skin
9. Negativity of any kind… people should really keep that to themselves
10. The annoying elevator style music some department stores choose to play
11. The sound of someone hocking up something that was better left where it was in the first place


  1. Hi Nikki,
    This comment is not relevant to this post but I could not find an e-mail address or other contact info for you.
    My name is Danielle, I am a Canadian university student doing some research on inaccessible touch screen point-of-sale devices. These are touch screen devices with no tactile buttons that some stores use to complete debit and credit card transactions, making them difficult or impossible for users with visual impairments to use.
    I am wondering if you have ever encountered one of these devices and were unable to use it? If so, I would be interested in talking to you about your experience and asking you a few questions. My e-mail address is, feel free to e-mail me if you are interested. Thanks for your time!

  2. Danielle, sorry about the lack of contact info I am trying to fix that problem though. I have experienced this issue and wouldn't mind talking to you about it. I will Email you so we can chat. Thanks for visiting my site and hope you keep coming back.

  3. I can see, but these sounds are very annoying to me as well!
