Rakesh was worried that his wife was having an hearing problem and he thought she might need a hearing aid.
Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family Doctor to discuss the problem.
The Doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could perform to give the Doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.
"Here's what you do,"said the Doctor, "Go home, stand about 40 feet away from her, and make a normal conversational and see if she can hear you. If not, go closer to about 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response."
That evening, his wife was in the kitchen cooking dinner, Rakesh thought of performing the test. He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away, let's see what happens.?"
Then in a normal tone he asks, "Honey, what's for dinner?"
So he moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, "Honey, what's for dinner?"
Still No response...
Next he moves to the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his Wife and asks, "Honey, what's for dinner?"
Again he gets No response...
So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. "Honey, what's for dinner?"
Again there is No response....
So he walks right up behind her, "Honey, what's for dinner?"
"For God's sake Rakesh, its the FIFTH time I am telling you, its 'AALOO PARATHA'.!"
