Deaf Wife

A man suspected that his wife had lost her hearing and that she might need a hearing aid.

Not quite sure on how to approach her to discuss her problem, he browsed the internet to find a solution.

He read about a simple informal test that he could perform to understand if she was suffering a hearing loss.

This is what it said, "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 washing 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?"

"James, for the FIFTH time I've said, CHICKEN!"

Moral of the story:  The problem may not be with the other as we always think.... It could be very much within us..!
