An elderly gentleman
had serious hearing problems for a number of years. He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%
The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, 'Your hearing is perfect.. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again.'
The gentleman replied, 'Oh, I haven't told my family yet.
I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!
Last but not least:
Couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a checkup, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember …
Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen? he asks.
Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?
Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it? she asks.
No, I can remember it.
Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to forget it?
He says, I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.
I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down!! she asks.
Irritated, he says, Dammit, I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!
Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, The old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.. She stares at the plate for a moment.
"Where's my toast ?"
