Hearing Problem

An old man decided his wife was losing her hearing, so he called her doctor to make an appointment to have her hearing checked.

The Doctor said he could see her in two weeks but, in the meantime, there was a simple test the husband could perform to give the doctor an idea of the dimensions of the problem.

"Here’s what you do.  Start about 40 feet away from her, and speak in a normal, conversational tone and see if she hears you.  If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response."

That evening his wife was in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he is in the living room.  He decides to try the test and is thinking "I’m about 40 feet away, let’s see what happens”.

"Honey, what’s for supper?”    No response.

He moves to the other end of the room, about 30 feet away. 

"Honey, what’s for supper?”   No response.

He moves into the dining room, about 20 feet away. 

"Honey, what’s for supper?”   No response.

Stopping at the kitchen door, only 10 feet away. 

"Honey, what’s for supper?”    No response.

He walks right up behind her. 

"Honey, what’s for supper?"

"For the FIFTH time, CHICKEN!”
