- Please quit trying to trick your classroom teachers into thinking your hearing aids are "broken." I really do not have all the time in the world to travel over to your school to "fix" your hearing aids.
- Please do not, under no circumstances, pull your hearing aid out of your ear and smell your ear mold in front of me. It disgusts me. I hope you do not do this in public.
- The same would apply to licking your hearing aid ear mold (although fortunately, none of you have done this). But don't ever do it. Yuck.
- Also, I would appreciate it if some of you would stop cleaning the ear wax out of your mold with your pencil or a bent paper clip (I gave you a nice little cleaning kit for this purpose). If you choose to clean with unconventional tools, do it on your own time. I don't want to see it.
- When you change your hearing aid batteries, do not throw your old and worn out batteries onto the ground. Throw it in the trash. I don't care if we are outside.
- Do not throw your hearing aids in your book bag or put them in your pant pockets when you are not wearing them. They have their own boxes for a reason.
- Stop giving me lame excuses for why you will not wear your hearing aids. "I hear real good today." "My dog died." (for the third time?) "It does not work." "My mom says I don't have to wear them today."
- If your hearing aids are bothering you and cause bleeding, please let me or your teacher know! I don't want you to wear your hearing aids if they are really hurting you.
