WHAT DID YOU JUST SAYING ?

Mr. G. unfortunately has to wear a hearing aid. Although it is really necessary according to the doctor and the tests and above all to me, who has to screem when he is not wearing it, he pretends that he doesn't need it !

This causes loud discussions, loud because he doesn't hear and I am so upset repeating all the time "What have I said ??"or "what I am saying" ?

As he doesn't listen I thought I will show him how it feels when somebody doesn't understand immediately. I put earplugs in my ears. Of course he was surprised that I didn't answer to his "what have I said ?" until he touched me and I turned around and pointed to my ears. This made him speachless.

I told him I will continue until he wears his hearing aids again ! I keep you informed .....

I can sympathise in that it took a long time for Hubby to admit defeat and go and get his ears tested. He actually needed hearing aids for both ears BUT (and much to my surprise) he wears them all the time and has got used to them. I need to work on remembering to talk to him face to face and not speaking too quietly lol

My dad uses them, and has for years.

What is it with men and their hearing? My dad, my uncle, my father in law all seem tonnage problems and my husband is getting there because of all the super loud rock concerts he used to go to as a teenager.

My sister goes through the same thing with my brother-in-law...I call it "selective hearing"...lol

He has probably learnt his lesson after your 'earplugs' trick. Well done.

Yup. I think everybody in our age group has some form of this problem . I can’t even count the number of times I’ve “suggested” a hearing test might be in order. (I have to admit though that this past year I think I might need one too. Maybe we can get a couples discount)).
