Default Deaf wife

A TV man feared his wife 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, ask her a
question and 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, "Honey, 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 no response.

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

Again there is no response.

So he walks right up behind her... "Honey, whats for dinner?"




"Ralph, for THE FIFTH TIME, CHICKEN!"

Made me chuckle!! I am pretty hard of hearing and have to wear 2 hearing aids, and that perfectly described most conversations in our house. I am grateful for a patient wife!
