"Concerned Husband" - An Inspirational story for Saturday, July 20th


Once there lived a happy couple who had been together for decades. But after spending years together, the husband was concerned that his wife was not hearing as well as she used to hear. He thought that she might need a hearing aid but he wasn’t sure how to approach her.

He called his family doctor and asked for suggestions. The doctor told him to test it with a simple idea. The doctor said,“ Stand 40 feet away from her and speak as loud as you would speak to her in a normal conversation. Observe if she hears you. If not, reduce the distance to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response. The distance will help us to estimate her requirements for the hearing aid. ”

Next day, the husband saw his wife cooking dinner in the kitchen. So he took the opportunity to check the doctor’s Idea. He got 40 feet away from his wife and asked, “dear what is there for dinner?” He waited for her response but didn’t get any.

He moved a bit closer and asked, “dear, what is there for dinner?” He still didn’t get any response from his wife.

He then stood twenty feet away from his wife and asked the same question, hoping he would get a response this time. But the wife did not respond.

He then stood just ten feet away from his wife and asked, “Dear, what is there for dinner.” He did not get any response.

By now the husband was very concerned and felt pity about how bad his wife was hearing.

Then he walked right behind her and said, “Honey, what is there for dinner.“

The wife shouted, “John, This is the fifth time I’m saying, CHICKEN..!!”


Sometimes, the problem is not others but is very much a problem with us.
