Yup; especially if the loss of hearing is recent.
My Grandmother on my Father's side was bone-deaf
and my brother taught and coached at ASDB,
(the Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind in Tucson)
for years - so I spend a lot of time with the "hearing-challenged' [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
(The Brother and his friends/students think ^ that is hilarious)
apparently they feel ([You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]) there is a difference between that
and "hearing-impaired". [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]- They far-and-away prefer
hearing-impaired".
Anyway... once the loss is 'familiar' - then the hard-of-hearing
speak at a normal volume. I'm darned if I know how they do that -
when I can't hear (with a cold or whatever) I talk so softly that
people get reeeally peeved with me. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

AND... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Molly's son Johnny has so much trouble with his ears until
he was old-enough and infection-free (tricky with chronic tonsilitis)
so he could have the tubes put in, he couldn't hear well AT ALL and
the [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] T.V. would be so LOUD ! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] no one could hear someone
speaking - standing next to them - in that room!
When Johnny got home from the hospital with the tubes in his ears
so he could HEAR, finally, then he couldn't believe! how LOUD!
everything was.
"Turn the T.V. DOWN!" was an amusing yelp ! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

When i was around 9,i had to have a Mastoid operation. My left ear drum was being " eaten up". Sad The Specialist grafted skin from between 2 of my fingers and rebuilt my ear drum. I can barely hear from the ear today and all the sounds come in my right ear. When a lot of people try to talk at once,the sound goes in one ear,but "can't go out the other" so the sound bounces around in my head. I\'m okay I guess with that & having a silver plate in my head from a fractured skull when i was 6 is my good excuse for getting a little "rattled at times" Shocked

Another thought . My mom has hearing aids for both ears,and paid thousands of $$$ for them and still can't hear 1/2 the time when you are only 10 feet away from her. Waste of money is my thought.

Yup.

Reminds me of a couple I drove home on several occasions; they must have been in their 80's, but would need a ride home from dinner out, or the German Club (Cannstatter's). Each time I drove them, they would ask the same questions.


Hendrick: (to me) "What high school did you go to?"

Me: Archbishop Ryan.

Hendrick: (to his wife) "Did you hear that, Helga, he went to Archbishop Ryan!"

Helga: "Eh?"

Hendrick: "He went to Ryan"

Helga: "Eh?"

Hendrick: "He went to Ryan"

Helga: "What?"

Hendrick: "HE WENT TO ARCHBISHOP RYAN!"

Helga: "STOP SHOUTING AT ME!!!"
