The Deaf Wife

This really appeals to me ,maybe because i am very hard of hearing.and this sort of thing happpens to me on a daily basis…..Even though i wear two powerful hearing aids…

A 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 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 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. ‘Honey, what’s for dinner?’
> ‘Ralph, for the FIFTH F*ing’ time, it’s CHICKEN!!!!’
