Irony Overheard

Scene: sitting in the waiting room at the Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat doctors’ office.  There’s a woman filling out the medical history form.  She’s sitting facing her mother who is 3 feet in front of her.

Daughter: Any hearing loss in our family?

Mother: What?

D:  ANY HEARING LOSS in our family?

M: What did you say?


M: Goodness, no!  We all hear just fine.

  1. HA HA HA…that’s like my dad who insists he has no hearing issues and yet the TV is on blasting volume all.the.time.!!

  2. Reminds me of the time I was at Sonic and witnessed the following exchange at the picnic table:
    Man: Blah, blah, blah
    Girl: Huh?
    Man: Turn your hearing aide up
    Girl: Huh?
    Repeat x 3
    Girl: Wait! Let me turn my hearing aid up

  3. Haha too funny! My grandmother is the same way – her tv is all the way up, CNN of course. And if we change the channel and turn it down, it’s far too loud! lol

  4. You should write comedy…that’s some funny stuff! The best part is my grandmother (who I lost on Christmas this year and I miss soooo much) owned most of what you listed! Her best friend Lucy would always order them for her. She had two different kinds of reachers and they work REALLY well.
