More Fun with Hearing Loss

I went to the drugstore to pick up two prescriptions, one for me and one for my husband.

"OK," said the clerk, 'I'll take care of yours first, and then I'll do his."

After retrieving my prescription, she asked for my husband's name.

"Phillip," I said."With two 'l's'."

"Phillip is perfect," she then announced.

I looked puzzled, so she repeated it. "Phillip is perfect."

I still looked uncomprehending.

"Phillip's birthdate," she enunciated clearly.

"Oh," I said.

Since I live in a smaller community going to drug store is pretty easy. Everyone knows most people.

Hi! My reasoning in a case like this is, "Some people mumble," and it has nothing to do with my hearing.
