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 s o on until you get a response.
“That evening, the wife is in her bedroom and he was in the den. He says to himself, “I’m about 40 feet away, let’s see what happens.” then in a romantic tone he asks, ‘Honey, do you wana make love tonight?” No response. So the husband moves to closer to the room, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, “Honey, do you wana make love tonight?” Still no response. Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, Honey, do you wana make love tonight?” Again he gets no response so; He walks up to the bedroom door, about 10 feet away. “Honey, do you wana make love tonight?” Again there is no
response. So he walks right up behind her.
“Honey, do you wana make love tonight?” ;;;;”Johny, for the FIFTH time I’ve said, YES!. If you ask me the same question the sixth time, I will drop the plan and will say ‘No’ “, replied the wife
Its funny but true that lot of times we feel the problem is with the other person when its actually with us. Identify your problem before you have to hear a “No”
