A husband feared that his wife was not hearing well as she used to hear. He got into thinking that she might need a hearing aid but he wasn’t sure how to approach her.
For suggestion he called family Doctor and told him about the situation. Doctor told him to test it by a simple idea and getter a better idea about her hearing loss.
Doctor said, “Here’s what you do. 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.”
Next day in evening he saw that wife was cooking dinner in the kitchen, So he took the chance to check the doctor’s idea.
He got about 40 feet away from the kitchen and asked his wife, “Dear, what for dinner?” and waited for response.
He got “No response”
So he moved bit closer about 30 feet away from kitchen and repeated the same question, “Dear what’s for dinner”.
Still he got “No Response”
Next he moved in to dining area about 20 feet away from kitchen and asked the same question, “Honey what’s for dinner?”
He still got “No Response”
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?”
Wife Shouted, “John, for the fifth time I’m saying, CHICKEN..!!”
