Boy, I never thought it would happen to me but people around me have started to mumble. Not only do they mumble, they talk when they have their head in the fridge or in the pantry. Or whatever! I'm so sick of saying: "what?"
So I quit. At first I would say "uh huh" or grunt or something to acknowledge that I am listening. But then I hear: "are you even listening to me?"
So today when I went for my annual physical, I finally (yes, this is years in the making) remembered to ask the doctor for a hearing test.
And guess what? I can hear. There is a bit of hearing loss in my left ear, but not enough to be referred to a specialist. You read that right: I can hear.
