Is it time to get your hearing tested?

Posted by on 15 February 2014

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 about a simple informal test that he could perform to get a better idea about her hearing loss.
"Here's what you do", said the Doctor, "stand about 10 metres away from her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 8 metres, then 6 metres, and so on until you get a response."

Then in a normal tone he asked, "Honey, what's for dinner?"
No response.
So the husband moved closer to the kitchen, about 8 metres from his wife and repeated, "Honey, what's for dinner?"
Still no response.
Next he moved into the dining room about 6 metres from his wife and asked, "Honey,
what's for dinner?"
Again he got no response.

Once more there was no response.
