Me: I tried to see this movie, but the captioning device didn't work for me

Them (after I explain how captioning devices at movie theaters can help me understand movies--when they work!): Oh, so you couldn't see the movie because you're deaf. -->

Me: (Tries again to explain relevance of the captioning device NOT WORKING to the fact that I couldn't see the movie)

Them: So you're basically saying that you couldn't see the movie because you're deaf.

Me: (silently screaming inside)

Then there are ppl who not only disregard the CAPTION DEVICE NOT WORKING but act as if I have somehow, silly me, forgotten I am deaf. And need to be reminded. And need to have it tactfully explained that this is why I can't understand movies.
