Elderly man with slight hearing problem takes advantage of doctor's advice
As humans age, so do their body parts and their ability to function at optimal levels. One thing that deteriorates rapidly in old age is hearing, as proved by these three men.
Miscommunication at the doctors
Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor for his annual physical.A few days later, the doctor was out running some errands when he saw Morris walking down the street with a beautiful young woman hanging on his arm.Surprised by this sudden turn of events, he stopped and said to Morris: "You're really doing great, aren't you?"Morris replied: "Just doing what you said, Doc. Get a hot mamma and be cheerful."The doctor was slightly perplexed before he realized that Morris had completely misunderstood his instructions. "I didn't say that at all. I said, you've got a heart murmur - be careful."
The hearing aid
An elderly gentleman had had serious hearing problems for a number of years already. He went to his local physician, and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100 %.The elderly gentleman went back to the doctor a month later and the doctor wanted to know the reaction of the man's family to his hearing improvement. "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again."The gentleman chuckled to himself as he replied, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to their conversations. I've changed my will three times!"
And the aged rear
One day at the nursing home, an old man and woman were chatting to one another. Out of nowhere the woman said to him, "I can guess your age."The man is highly skeptical of this claim, but tells her to go ahead and try anyway."Pull down your pants," she said.He doesn't understand how this could be necessary, but does it anyway, wanting to see where she was going with it. She inspected his rear end for a few minutes before saying, "You're 84 years old.""That's amazing," the man said, utterly confused. "How did you know?"She replied with: "You told me yesterday!"
