A husband began wondering if his wife had a hearing problem as they were struggling to communicate.
One day, he decided to put her to the test. While his wife was sitting down watching the television, he crept up behind her.
“Honey, can you hear me?” He whispered from a bit of a distance.
After no response he crept up a bit closer and said a bit louder: “Honey, can you hear me?” The wife didn’t even flinch.
Finally, he moved right behind his wife and yelled in her ear: “Honey, can you hear me?!”
His wife whipped around quickly, “For the third time, yes!”
