    Hmmm, logic didn’t tell you you were included? Brings to mind an old grade school joke I shan’t repeat here.

    I have suggested Hubby put in his hearing aids when he puts on his glasses. Apparently the problem is that I simply don’t speak loudly enough.

    It’s not just annoying – it’s dangerous. It was rather disconcerting when I asked him how long the brakes had been making “that noise” and his answer was “what noise?”

    Being hearing impaired all my life I’ve lived all my life like this. Amazes me that people can hear each other from different rooms. Myself if your not looking/speaking at me from less then 5 feet away I’ll hear noise but likely won’t understand a word you’ve said. For those with good hearing, hearing aids are NOT the cure all so don’t go there.

    It’s people talking to each other from other rooms. I’ve started ignoring such feeble attempts at communication.

    She could not hear him and he can’t hear her. She replied to him, but he did not hear her.

    This was my husband and me, until I finally persuaded him that he needed hearing aides (I had had my own for nearly a year by then).

    Nothing a “not a hearing aid” can’t fix. I recommend Banglijion.

    Whoever’s cooking in our house is completely tuned out when the stove exhaust fan is on. Sometimes it’s on purpose.

    I credit this observation to one of my grown nieces. “As far as I can tell, marriage means yelling ‘what?’ from another room.”

    Reminds me of my father. If he couldn’t hear my mother he said she was losing her voice. If she couldn’t hear him he said she was losing her hearing.

    I cracked up…guess you have to be a certain age. The most common words in our house are “What?”, “Huh?”, and the phrase “could you repeat that?”

    I suggest they discontinue the rude practice of yelling at someone they can’t see. Get up off your bum and walk to the person you are talking to. House screaming room to room is just nasty and inconsiderate. You can train someone to stop by insisting you can’t hear them when they are yelling. They will be confused, but will learn to go to you and speak in a normal tone, which you will respond to in a normal tone. How lazy humans can be!

    Don’t talk to someone if you are not in the same room.

    Sounds just like my old man. He gripes because I can’t hear and you have to yell at him for him to hear. I tell him at least I wasn’t as vain and in denial as him, I got a hearing aid.

    Damaged my hearing in the military, when I got out I had to take a physical for a job that entailed a hearing test. from 20 hz to 3khz I had several major drop outs and after 10khz nothing.

    My husband swears his hearing is perfectly fine. He had it tested and there is only one tone he can’t here. It is the exact tone of my voice!

    If you wear hearing aids you know the answer. Arlo is saying “What did you say?” He needs hearing aids, but Janis may need them too.

    At 85, I’ve been blessed to still be able to hear a mouse pee in my sock drawer, smell electrical shorts somewhere in the neighborhood, appreciate spicy food and see road signs long before I get there, but….um… what’d I start to say, anyways?? Oh, yeh.. it was something about a rant about all those ‘invitations for a free lunch and seminar about "hearing problems and it’s cures" that I get 3x a week here in FL…>cuss, fume, mumble<

    My brother-in-law refused to accept that his hearing was bad. He would mishear something my sister said and get all huffy and pissed off at her for no real reason. It took him years to learn to ask her to repeat things.
