Thanks to Katherine Trauger at Home’s Cool for this one.
A man who was profoundly hearing-impaired made a long trip to the big city to obtain one of the miraculous new hearing aids that was supposed to be just what he needed to be able to hear again. Even before he left the office, he began experiencing sounds he had never dreamed of and marvelled at all he had been missing in the world of sound.
After the fitting the doctor told him to return in a week to discuss adjustments.
When the one-week check up was near the end, the doctor asked him, “Well, how did your family react to your new ability to hear? Were they as excited as I am?”
The man replied, “Oh, I haven’t told them yet. But I’ve got an appointment with a lawyer to change my will next week.”
