Are you deaf ? .... I asked ''Are you deaf '' ?

Found 14th May 2008
A concerned husband went to a doctor to talk about his wife. He says to the doctor, 'Doctor, I think my wife is deaf because she never hears me the first time and always asks me to repeat things.'

'Well,' the doctor replied, 'go home and tonight stand about 15 feet from her and say something to her. If she doesn't reply move about 5 feet close and say it again. Keep doing this so that we'll get an idea about the severity of her
deafness'.

Sure enough, the husband goes home and does exactly as instructed. He starts off about 15 feet from his wife in the kitchen as she is chopping some vegetables and says, 'Honey, what's for dinner?' He hears no response.

He moves about 5 feet closer and asks again.

No reply. He moves 5 feet closer. Still no reply. He gets fed up and moves right behind her, about an inch away, and asks again, 'Honey, what's for dinner?'

She replies, 'For the fourth time, vegetable stew!'

My wife's getting hard of hearing,
I really have to let her know.
When you are getting old, like her,
Your hearing’s often first to go.

She also mumbles when she talks
Just like that deaf girl on TV.
But when I try to let her know,
She says the one that’s deaf is me.

So I snuck into the kitchen
And whispered, “What’s for dinner, Dear?"
Her back to me, I heard no answer.
That proved my point, she couldn’t hear.

From closer up I asked again,
“What are you cooking for tonight?"
Once again I heard no answer.
So now it seems that I was right.

I went right up behind her back
And put my mouth up to her ear.
In voice quite loud, I asked once more,
No way, this time, she couldn’t hear.

She turned and asked, "Are you stone deaf!
Your hearing's gotten worse, Old Dear.
I've had to answer you three times!
We’re having chicken. Can't you hear?"
