A husband thinks his wife is going deaf
A man decides to consult the family doctor about a communication problem in his marriage, and the result was surprising.
Marriage isn't easy, and it doesn't get any easier as time goes on and couples get older and grouchier.
Dealing with changes in each other is quite a challenge, and can also be hilariously funny, as our Joke of the Day proves.
DEAF TO THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE
A husband notices his wife hasn’t been answering him when he talks, so decides to take her to the family doctor to see what’s wrong.
“Doc, I think my wife is going deaf,” he explains when they arrive.
SOLVING A MEDICAL MYSTERY
It’s something the doctor has seen many times before and he comes up with a simple routine to test the wife’s hearing.
“Stand some distance away from her and ask her a question,” he tells the man. “If she doesn’t answer, move a little closer and ask again. Keep doing this until she answers. Only then will we be able to tell how hard of hearing she really is.”
ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTION
The man walks across the room and follows the doctor’s instructions.
“Sweetie, what’s for dinner?” he asks.
He walks closer and asks again.
“Honey, what’s for dinner?”
The man repeats this several times until he is standing right in front of his wife.
Finally, she answers him:
“For the 20th time, I said we are having chicken for dinner!”
INVESTIGATING A FARMER FOR LABOR INFRACTIONS
A man owned a small ranch near Sheridan, Wyoming. The Wyoming Labor Department got a tip that he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an investigator out to interview him.
“I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them,” demanded the investigator.
“Well,” replied the rancher, “there’s my ranch hand who’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $1200 a week plus free room and board."
"The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $1000 per week plus free room and board."
"Then there’s the half-wit. He works about 18 hours every day, with no days off, and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week and pays his own room and board."
"But, I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night, and he also sleeps with my wife occasionally.”
“That’s the guy I want to talk to… the half-wit,” says the investigator.
“You’re talking to him,” replied the rancher.
