Are You Hard of Hearing?

Hearing Problem

“Doctor, I think my wife is getting hard of hearing.”
A fried chicken“I’ll have my nurse make an appointment for her, but in the
meantime, there’s a simple, informal test you can run to
give us an idea how bad the problem is. Here’s what you do:
start out about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal
conversational speaking tone say something 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’s in the living room. In a normal tone he asks, “Honey,
what’s for supper?”

No response.

So the husband moves to the other end of the room and
repeats, “Honey, what’s for supper?”

Still no response.

Next he moves into the dining room. “Honey, what’s for
supper?”

No response, so he walks up to the kitchen door. “Honey,
what’s for supper?”

Again there is no response, so he walks right up behind her.
“Honey, what’s for supper?”

“For the fifth time, Harry, CHICKEN!”
