I used to have this girlfriend whose husband just never paid any attention to her. It turns out the poor guy was hard of hearing.
So... wifey took him to a specialist, and ended up purchasing hearing aids for him. They were those special ones that needed to be implanted.
Well... one day her hubby, whose eyesight was also failing, went to the doctor to get the devices implanted. But... as bad luck would have it... he ran into a bit of a problem because of his eyesight.
When he got to the medical building, he mis-read the signs, and went into the dentist's office instead of visiting the ear specialist. The dentist... also being an older fellow whose skills were in decline... ended up taking the two hearing devices and implanted them in two of the gentleman's teeth.
So now... the wife thinks her husband can hear her, but unfortunately, he only hears her when he "chews" to. < ducking >
