    The Deaf Wife Problem


    Bert feared his wife Peg wasn't hearing as well as she used to and he
    thought she might need a hearing aid.

    Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family Doctor to
    discuss the problem.

    The Doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could
    perform to give the Doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.

    "Here's what you do," said the Doctor, "stand about 40 feet away from
    her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you.
    If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response."

    That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was
    in the den. He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away,
    let's see what happens."

    Then in a normal tone he asks, "Honey, what's for dinner?"

    No response.

    So the husband moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his
    wife and repeats, "Peg, what's for dinner?"

    Still no response.

    Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from
    his Wife and asks, "Honey, what's for dinner?"

    Again he gets no response.

    So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. "Honey,
    what's for dinner?"

    Again there is no response.

    So he walks right up behind her. "Peg, what's for dinner?"

    (I just love this)

    'For heaven's sake, Bert, for the FIFTH time, its CHICKEN!'

    As a wife of a hard of hearing husband I can relate to this. I really got use to him not fully hearing me and I would mumble grumble under my breath. He got hearing aids (great ones from Costco of all places)in January and I'm in big trouble now. He can hear my mumble grumbles. Last week he got a remote control for the hearing aids--I didn't know such a thing exists, but on the aid itself there is only several volume settings, but with the remote it has a slider on it and it gives a better range to choose from. He is a happy listener now.
