    DBF has been complaining to me that I don't listen and need to get hy hearing checked. Oftentimes I'll ask him something only to be told that "I've already TOLD you that". It's so frustrating to have him be exasperated with me all the time.

    I tell him that he mumbles, talks to me when I'm occupied doing something else, and doesn't tell me all the things he thinks he does.

    So I decided to get my hearing checked. The doctor said that I have "excellent hearing".

    Today I'm grateful that:
    1. My hearing is good.
    2. I get to tell DBF that my hearing is good. [​IMG]

    Every woman's 3 fav words are: "TOLD YOU SO".

    My MOM does that to me all the time. I'll be completely absorbed in something else and she'll decide to tell me a story or plans for the weekend or any of several other things that she feels I NEED to know at that moment. Then later I'll ask her what we are doing for the weekend or what we are having for dinner and she'll tell me that I never listen.

    I admit, I do have selective hearing a good portion of the time. I don't admit that to my mom though [​IMG]

    My DH says the samething about me...althought I do have sugnificant hearing loss, I always remind him of

    1. The FEMALE always makes THE RULES.

    2. NO male can possibly know THE RULES.

    3. THE RULES are subject to change at any time with prior notification by the FEMALE.

    4. If the FEMALE suspects that the male knows THE RULES, she shall immediately change some, or all, of THE RULES.

    5. The FEMALE is never wrong.

    6. If it appears that the FEMALE is wrong, it is due to a flagrant misunderstanding which is the direct result of something the male said or did.

    7. Should RULE6 apply, the male must apologize immediately for causing the misunderstanding.

    8. The FEMALE my change her mind at any time.

    9. The male shall never change his mind without prior written consent from the FEMALE.

    10. The FEMALE may be angry or upset at any time.

    11. The male shall remain calm at all times, unless the FEMALE wants him to be angry or upset.

    12. The FEMALE shall never, under any circumstances, let the male know whether or not she wants him to be angry or upset.

    13. Any attempt by the male to document a RULE for settlement of future disputes may result in bodily harm.

    14. If the male is confused about any RULE, refer to RULE #1.

    A. If the FEMALE has PMS, all RULES are null and void.
    B. If the male has UMS (Ugly Mood Swings), that’s his problem.

    Quote:That's hilarious! My DH and I went to get our hearing checked because of a similar situation-- only with him never hearing what *I* say.

    *I* am going deaf (and am attentive, he can't complain), his hearing is perfect (and he still can't hear me! [​IMG]) I also finally had proof for him that playing loud music HURTS me!

    Since then my SIL has pulled him aside and told him he needs to stop filtering me out LOL!
