|A man goes to the doctor and complains that his wife can`t hear him.|
"How bad is it?" the doctor asks.
"I have no idea", says the husband.
"Well, please test her. Stand 20 feet away from her and say something. If she doesn`t hear you, get closer and say the same thing. Keep moving closer repeating the comment until she does hear you. That way we`ll have an idea of her range of hearing loss."
So the man goes home and sees his wife in the kitchen chopping up vegetables for dinner.
From 20 feet: "What are we having for dinner?"
No answer. From 10 feet, same thing. From 5 feet, same thing. Finally he`s standing right behind her ...
"What`s for dinner?"
She turns around, looks at him and says "For the FOURTH time ... BEEF STEW!"
