Yes, Dear.
 
2013-08-30 02:10:47 PM
What?
 
2013-08-30 02:11:35 PM
Research shows that sky is blue!

It is actually hard to hear my wife.  She talks in a southern accent and her voice is deeper and softer than the average woman.  Plus I am a white guy from the north and she is a black girl from the south, so there are accent issues where I have no clue.

Our running joke is that if I am so bad right now at hearing her from across a room imagine when we're in our 70's...

I sometimes wonder how much they spend on this type of research. I am also sure that they could have saved thousands, if not millions by simply going to the local bar and asking anyone there
 
2013-08-30 02:11:50 PM
Of course i was listening
 
2013-08-30 02:12:52 PM
The needed to research this? It's been known for thousands of years. Next thing you know they'll be researching water to see if it's actually wet.
 
2013-08-30 02:13:59 PM
Confirmed.
 
2013-08-30 02:14:23 PM
I'm showing this to my wife and telling her it means it's likely to be less of a hassle if she just takes out the garbage herself.

That has got to be some of the worst writing I have come across in a very long time.

Good luck... we're counting on you.
 
2013-08-30 02:17:13 PM
I don't tune her out... I just know she's about to say something stupid.
 
2013-08-30 02:17:44 PM
Once again, your wife is right.
 
2013-08-30 02:18:59 PM
Those whose traits include the inabaility to filter out a spouses voice often kill eachother prior to breeding.
So, the headline would make sense.

Thanks Darwin.

Be sure and let us know how that works out for ya.
 
2013-08-30 02:19:43 PM
What?
 
2013-08-30 02:20:56 PM
It is an acquired skill. One i excel at,

My favorite is when she is in mid sentence and I am actually listening only to have to to ask her what she just said.

She loves that

Obvious tag is on the back 9 while your sister's fuming at the airport.

I know that's right!  The bf (of 15 years) will ask me something, then when I reply he says, 'What?'...

/really?

My husband likes to start a conversation from another room but when I reply to what he's asked, he says "What? What? I can't hear you! Speak louder!". Then I speak louder and he says "Why are you shouting at me?"  If you can't hear someone in another room, why start a conversation with them?
 
2013-08-30 02:22:26 PM
I heard that the perfect marriage was a deaf husband and a blind wife.

Oh, good luck with that.

If the words don't move you, the flying shoe will.

And Super Chronic was never heard from again.

I'm sorry, Subby. I wasn't listening.

bahaha!  Yes!

If your spouse insists upon speaking at you from another room despite you telling them repeatedly not to, just start moaning in pleasure.  They'll come around.
 
2013-08-30 02:28:29 PM
Thanks research.  For round 2 of your clinical study, could you resolve the following paradox:

Premise: Wifey lays out critical detailed instructions for subject to do blah blah blah
Subject:  Acknowledges critical detailed instructions to do blah blah blah
Variable: Wifey refuses to accept subject's acknowledgement and demands "okay, tell me what I just said..."

Goal: Devise an appropriate response for subject.
 
2013-08-30 02:28:37 PM
My wife sends me articles like this all the time to justify her selective deafness.  I'm beginning to wonder if she's commissioning the studies herself
 
2013-08-30 02:28:53 PM
I find a Ball Gag is perfect for tuning her out.

My fiancee does this all the time, im in another room, the AC is on and theres 2 box fans going, i can hear that youre talking to me, but i cant hear what youre saying. No, im not getting up so you dont have to shout, you started this conversation, you get up!

Is that a report by Ric Romero?

Every time that Geico commercial with the "Not-so-wise" owls come on my wife cackles and says that is me.

Every.  Single.  Time.

Clearly, subby must be single since the Hero tag was used when it should have been the Obvious tag.

The appropriate response is to repeat what she just said.  The only reason this has to happen is because men like to say they 'don't remember'

Additionally:  Nagging only happens when women have to keep repeating themselves...get it right the first time and this won't happen...

"Hey honey, can you please take out the trash?"
...
"Hey honey, can you please take care of the kids?"
...
"Hey honey, can you please sign these divorce papers?"

Obvious tag on holiday?

When my aunt turned 75 she stopped being able to hear by uncle almost completely.  He solved that problem by getting a little bell that he rang whenever he wanted her.  Farking Genius!!

What cracks me up about that commercial is the sly look on the woman's face when she says, 'well, did you know that some owls aren't that wise?'

Sure, all fine and well, and maybe it works that way theoretically in academia, but let's focus on the real world.
 
2013-08-30 02:43:57 PM
Maybe if she would ever say something I wanted to hear.
 
2013-08-30 02:44:03 PM
Uh huh... yeah... no kidding... uh huh...

"Husbands were a bit more apt to forget what their wife said than vice-versa."

That's because women tend to say a lot more than is necessary so men just learn to ignore 90% of it. The trick isn't how to tune her out, it's how to tune back in when she finally gets around to making her point.
 
2013-08-30 02:46:03 PM
In my Human Growth and Development class in college my instructor stated that men lose the ability to hear higher pitched frequencies (like their wives voices) as they age. She asked us if anyone knew why.

I raised my hand and said: "Intelligent design: it's the last bit of peace we get before we die.".

The 32 women in the class were not amused. The 3 men were.
 
2013-08-30 02:46:09 PM
My wife is chatty in the mornings. I am not, particularly if she speaks sentences more complex than "coffee?" before coffee. I clearly am functionally deaf until Mug Number 2.

By the same token, she will pass out on the couch at any point during the late evening news. I do not fall asleep on the couch, although I have addressed her sleeping form as if she was awake.
