Today’s #jokeoftheday is about a man who feared that his wife was having hearing problems. He decided to use the help of the family doctor to get to the bottom of the case.


In the past months, Bob had noticed that something was wrong with his wife, Peg. He discovered that whenever he was trying to pass a message across to her, she had a hard time hearing him properly.

At first, he thought she was getting easily distracted, but he soon realized that he couldn’t get across to her unless he repeated himself about 2-3 times. He became worried and decided to seek the help of the family doctor.

He invited the doctor home and told him privately about his fears. Bob noted that he thinks Peg should get a hearing aid, but he was unsure how to pass the news across to her. The doctor informed him that there was a way out.

The doctor told Bob of an exercise he could perform at home to help Peg realized she had hearing problems. He advised Bob to stand about 40 feet from his wife and try to have a conversation in a normal tone.

The doctor said that if Peg didn’t hear him at 40 feet, he should move 10 feet closer and repeat his words. Bob should keep at it until his wife hears him. After the doctor left, Bob decided to try the experiment.

That evening as Peg was cooking, he moved to the den and, in a normal tone, said, “Honey, what's for dinner?” He moved another 10 feet closer to Peg and asked the question again. As expected, the wife gave no response.


He moved closer again, this time to the dining room, and said, “Honey, what’s for dinner?” To his disappointment, Peg gave no answer. He moved closer, standing next to the kitchen door, and repeats the question.

Again, it was all silence from Peg. Frustrated, he walked towards Peg and stood behind her. He shook her vigorously as he asked what’s for dinner. Peg angrily turned to him and yelled, “for God’s sake, Bob, for the FIFTH time, CHICKEN!!!”
