The Coolest Experience I Had as an Apple Store Employee

Chris Gonzales assists a group of students as an Apple Store employee:

Each student was given the choice of a black or a white 160GB MacBook. I supposed they had all been brought to the Apple Store to check each one out at the last minute and see what they liked best, but it didn’t take long for the students to form a line next to the teacher with their minds already made up. And then the teacher walked off to handle a student who was being particularly rowdy.

And then it dawned on me that all of these students were all speaking to one another in sign language.

They were from a school for the deaf.

Fascinating story, if you stick around until the end.
