You Need to Speak Up

“What did you say?”

“For the third time, did you like the book?”

“Yes, and there wouldn’t be a third time if you would speak up.”

“I’m almost shouting. You need to get your hearing checked.”

“You need to stop mumbling.”

“I’m the problem. What about the waiter at the restaurant the other day that started to write down his question about your order and then asked me for help?”

“The restaurant was too noisy.”

“We were the only ones there. Lately, you have a complaint about everyone you try to talk to. You need to get your hearing checked and, maybe, look into some help. I know you hate the idea. But today, Stockport hearing aids aren’t one size fits all. I’m certain you can find one that will suit you, and keep the rest of us from becoming hoarse from shouting.”

“Okay. For you and your voice box.”
