The problem with asking

When it comes to asking for help, one never knows what the outcome will be, and for a blind person this is even more true. You could be extremely happy with the outcome; the person being asked may go the extra mile to help, or you may be somewhat disappointed if the person fails to meet your expectations.

There is no predictability when it comes to asking and as a blind person, each time I go to ask a question, I say a silent prayer that it turns out to be a pleasant experience. Of course, in some cases, the person you ask may not really know the answer or they may be preoccupied but there are really some great persons who will take the time to help and find out if they do not quite know the answer.

Asking could be fun or it could turn out to be frustrating. It could also turn into a very rewarding experience. I love to ask and I love to help make it turn into something pleasant for everyone.

I’m Donna J. Jodhan your friendly accessibility advocate wishing you a terrific day and encouraging you to help me spread the word to others.
