A man was concerned because his wife didn't respond to him anymore. He thought she was going deaf and ultimately decided to visit a doctor for some advice.
A man decided to go to a doctor because he thought that his wife had lost her ability to hear. Nervous and worried sick, he patiently waited for his turn.
Soon, he was called into the doctor's cabin. The doctor smiled at him and asked him to have a seat.

"So what seems to be the problem, sir?" the doctor asked."It's not me, it's my wife," the man began. "I'm here to get some advice."
"I'm all ears," the doctor replied."I think my wife is going deaf," the man said with a nervous look on his face.
"Why do you think so," the doctor queried.
"Well, she just doesn't reply to me anymore. She doesn't seem to be able to hear me," the man said.
The doctor was lost in thought for a moment. Then he came up with a solution.
"Well, here's something that might work. First, we will need to find out just how hard of hearing she is," the doctor said.
"Stand at least 10 feet away from her and ask her a question. If she doesn't answer, move a little closer to her. Repeat until she is finally able to hear you."
The man went home and decided to try what the doctor had advised him to do. He went to the kitchen where his wife was busy cooking.
"Honey, what's for dinner?" he asked.
The man inched a little closer towards his wife and asked the same question again. Still no reply.
The man kept moving closer and closer and asked the same question. His wife just wouldn't respond to him. At this point, the man was pretty sure that his wife was going deaf after all.
With a little hope, he finally stood a few inches apart from her and asked the same question. "Honey, what's for dinner? I'm super hungry."
"For the tenth time, I said we're having meatloaf for dinner!"
Here's another joke about a wife who came home late one night.
