With a name like that, she'd make nothing

This is the conversation between Streats and me in work this morning.


Streats: Have you heard of the new stripper?

Me (looking slightly confused): What?

Streats (not realizing I'm giving her a confused look): The new stripper for NY?

Me (more confused): What??

Streats (now realizing I am confused): For NY? The new stripper, InfoLab?

Me (more puzzled than ever): We hired a stripper in NY named InfoLab?

Streats (rolling her eyes): Dis-trib-u-tor, you nitwit. Get your hearing aid already!

Heh ... I have that problem with the Mrs all the time. I just repeat to her what I thought I heard. Usually nothing like what she said. It's to a point where I ask her to get my attention before speaking to me so I can FOCUS on the words coming out of her mouth. Works 80% of the time.

Next time someone is rude about your difficulty with hearing, I suggest this.

Wait till your in a group situation and they start telling everyone of a difficulty or problem they have.

All of a sudden,

You say "Did you hear that?"

They will say "Hear what?"

You say "My heart breaking"

The more sarcastic its said, the better the effect.

Can you blow me where the pampers is?

(Sorry -- immature moment. I watched "PCU" last night.)

I am ALWAYS mis-hearing something Mrs. Fab says. If you find a hearing aid that works for you, please let me know! :)

MDM ~ I have to do that "face the speaker" thing all the time.

SID ~ I know a few people I'd love to do that to. Alas, those very people are more sarcastic than you, Pig, and Taz lumped together. It would be mud wrestling a pig.

CP ~ My best misinterpretation was thingking I heard "plate of snakes". Here the person was asking for a pen.

Mr Fab ~ The hearing aid I need ranges from $2,000 to $3,000. Being cheap and misunderstood, or broke and understanding? Decisions, decisions ..;
