Ears, the hearing factor
Early interesting Cars:
'59 Chevy customized Apachie.
But for today:
Mama always said ‘Wash behind your ears!’!
As an adult I still don’t know how I got so dirty behind my ears. I have met many ‘audiologists.’ I remember being told, “Never put anything in your ear smaller than your elbow!” I laughed and told the young man I had never heard that one before. He was amazed, evidently everyone is supposed to have heard that statement. Have you?
Anyway I have read that Q-tips are never to be used in one’s ears! Where else would you use them? I always use the Q-tip after a shower. Of course I am careful. I remember Lucy and Joe would ‘get into it’ when she used the Q-tip in her ear.
Okay, ears came up because of a debit card problem. Story: We paid our house insurance. Sherry wrote a check. A few days later our ins. man called and said he had found a company much cheaper and had cancelled the policy, so in a couple days the Ins Company sent us a refund.
I first deposited the refund at the bank ATM It was Accepted and gave my card back. I plugged it in again for another transaction and was refused. I tried again NADA!
So we get a call, mysterious transaction with your card, I tried to talk using the speaker phone and did okay for the first couple sentences. But after that it all became garbled.
After that phoncon, I realized my brain delays the meaning of a sentence and interprets it a second or two later. So after about 4-5 sentences the brain returns get mixed (I am behind the speaker) and I get SUPER frustrated.
If you are familiar with ‘closed caption’ it runs a sentence or two behind the speaker at times. So it is impossible to try to listen to the speaker and read the captions, I can do one or the other, trying both, frustrates my brain. LOL
I have said for a long time I cannot stay on a phone long, I just realized why! :-(
