This guy was looking for work. He came in like other day-laborers. He was mute as well as deaf. Since he was from someplace in Central America so they got the spanish speaking girl in the office. She said “but he don’t talk spanish and he don’t hear spanish”. The boss guy couldn’t hear her either.
When they left I gave him a safety-vest, twenty bucks, and a rake. I never saw him again.
