ARE DEAF ANG MOHS SELLING KEYCHAINS PART OF ORGANISED SCAM?

Apologies for the crude title. Lately I have encountered at least 5 (in the last 3 months) instances where a guy would walk into the cafe I'm in (usually Toastbox) and put the toy keychains and card (see image above) on every table.

INSPIRING LIFE LESSONS FROM A HEARING IMPAIRED UBER DRIVER

I was touched by an Angel(uber driver) yesterday. Wifey took my car so I decided to uber home. When the Toyota Vios approached, I received an sms message from the uber app - "Your driver(Andrew) has difficulty speaking." I was puzzled. I hopped into it and a fine gentleman greeted me with a smile and pointed to the map on his phone, checking if he got my destination right. I replied: "Yeah bro". I carried on indicating that I would like to proceed via a certain route and when Andrew did not reply me, that's when I realized that Andrew is deaf.

RUDE TEACHER TOLD HEARING-IMPAIRED STUDENT NOT TO FAKE HEARING PROBLEM

My hubby brought my firl to ENT at NUH on Monday for a hearing test. The specialist found her right ear to have some problem and the results will confirm next week. I emailed the form teacher to tell her what the ENT specialist mentioned after the preliminary test, the reply was to update her if the right ear is confirmed to have a problem and apply for 'access arrangement for Listening Comprehension' with the medical report. But yesterday, the form teacher told my daughter not to pretend that she can't hear and there is nothing wrong. Since the test was done by a medical specialist, the teacher would know that the child is not faking it. why did she tell daughter 'not to pretend' she has a hearing problem? seems like a double standard kind of thing...on one hand she thanked me for informing her, but yet accused daughter of faking it.
