A man is talking to the family doctor.
"Doc," he says, "I think my wife's going deaf."
"Really?" says the doctor. "Well, here's something you can try on her to test her hearing. Stand some distance away from her and ask her a question. If she doesn't answer, move a little closer and ask again. Keep doing this until she answers. Then you'll be able to tell just how hard of hearing she really is."
The man goes home and tries what the doctor told him. He walks in the front door, spots his wife across the room and says, "Hi, honey. What’s for dinner?"
He doesn't hear an answer, so he moves closer to her.
"Honey, what's for dinner?" he repeats.
Still no answer. He asks her several more times, until he's standing just a few feet away from her.
Finally, she answers, "For the eleventh time, I said we're having MEATLOAF!"
