An old friend of mine who is pretty savvy about most things describes his disability (hearing impairment) as an inconvenience morethan anything else. At first I thought this was a pretty fair definition. Then I looked it up in the freedictionary which defines inconvenient as "troublesome, annoying, awkward, embarrassing, disturbing, unsuitable, tiresome, untimely, bothersome, and vexatious." Really? Is that the definition we're aiming for?
