I think also though that our body language says a lot to sighted 
people.  If my tone is friendly but I'm making a face like, Oh, 
there those sighties go again" the facial expression is what they 
see.  The other thing too is that for me, at least, the older I 
get the less I can hear.  And my responses aren't as quick as 
they used to be.  Lol.  And there are all kinds of other issues 
like: is it raining? That changes the sound.  Is it windy? If 
it's windy I can't hear very well at all and feel very 
uncomfortable.  I didn't used to be that way.  And just like some 
sighted folks won't drive in certain conditions that other 
sighted folks have no problem with, we all have our different 
comfort levels, too.  I wouldn't cross Andreason at an unlighted 
crossing to save my soul.  No way, no how.  But I used to cross 
First and Burney in Vancouver with no problem.  So I guess it 
just all depends.    Peace,    Debby
