I didn't think it was a big deal. Just a small communications issue. I told them I'd take care of it. Everything would work out fine. I told them I knew sign language so it wouldn't really matter. They didn't listen. At least they let me keep it. I have it in a jar by the side of my bed. Really, the only drawback is that I can't taste my whiskey anymore.
