"Honey, what's for dinner?"

A man feared his wife wasn't hearing as well as she used to
and he thought she might need a hearing aid. Not quite sure
how to approach her, he called the family Doctor to discuss
the problem. The Doctor told him there is a simple informal
test the husband could perform to give the Doctor a better
idea about her hearing loss.

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

That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner,
and he was in the den. He says to himself, "I'm about
40 feet away, let's see what happens."

Then in a normal tone he asks, "Honey, what's for dinner?"

No response.

So the husband moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet
from his wife and repeats, "Honey, what's for dinner?"

Still no response.

Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet
from his wife and asks, "Honey, what's for dinner?"

Again he gets no response so;

He walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away.
"Honey, what's for dinner?"

Again there is no response.

So he walks right up behind her. "Honey, what's for dinner?"

"James, for the FIFTH time I've said, CHICKEN!"

Moral of the story:
The problem may not be with the other one as we always think -
could be very much within us..! SO don't always blame others
for the things that you may lack.

    Very good story and imply to our life.
    Hoping everyone could have INTROSPECTION.

  4. haha! See fei, perhaps sounds like everyone of us at one time or another. No?

    Joe, I cracked up when I came to this part, ""James, for the FIFTH time I've said, CHICKEN!"

    Hi PP, yes, introspection indeed.

  5. B-b-b-but nothing is ever my fault! I'm American, and in the U.S. everything is always someone else's fault! Everyone knows that! That's why talk radio is so popular!

  6. HAHAHAAHHAAHAH...hice one!

    But i think most men are either DEAF or PRETENDING to be deaf =\

  7. MM, I don't think it's just American. It's a human trait that needs a lot of work.

    Pink Cotton, I think they're being smart. Hear no evil? haha......
