“Why in God's name would we start listening now?


married 42 years due to the patience and understanding of DW “

My husband has some hearing loss. Not unusual for his age and having worked in a noisy environment. There is a tendency for older men to lose hearing in the range of women's voices. He claims that he isn't ignoring me but just can't hear me. Hearing aids aren't working.

My wife has a bad habit of talking to herself - she thinks that I am listening. ;-)
We are both in our middle 70s and have more than a little hearing loss (especially me). Around 12 or 10 years ago, because DW was complaining that I had the volume up too loud on the TV for her, one of the kids sent us “TV EARS” ( ). I would wear it with the volume up while she had the TV on at normal volume. She would then tell me something and assume that I heard her. A day or two later, she would tell me that she told me something while we were listing to TV and why didn’t I remember, huuugh? More recently, she would talk to me with the TV on while I’m in another room doing something like cooking with the exhaust fan on.

C.J.V. - haven’t murdered on another after all these years, us
