1. Don’t shout. They can’t hear, right? So why would you speaking louder make them suddenly be able to hear?
2. Don’t over-enunciate or speak slower. ”Helllloooo, mmyyyy naaaaammme iiiiisssss Iiiiidiiioooot.” Nice to meet you idiot.
3. Don’t talk to the interpreter or hearing person that may be with them. ”What’s your friend’s name?” My reply, “how about you ask them yourself?” “Tell them my name is Rude-Face.” Consider it done.
