On BBC Radio 4 "Today" programme the presenters tend to mumble during the breaks between items - most annoying to someone like me who has a bit of HF deafness

I've always found my wife's inability to keep something 'she considers important' to herself highly amusing.. the need to tell me whatever it is as a matter or urgency no matter what i am doing is paramount.. my fave is when she has to tell me how much her mother has just annoyed her my imparting a load of bolloxs to her over the phone. there is a stage when this influx of bolloxes can stop its just not with a female

Maybe it's the lingering Australian accent, or maybe it's her beautiful blue eyes, but the sound of my wife's voice still quickens the pulse.

My GF has the same problem.


Although I have the other problem of talking to her from another room while she is at the sink with the tap on or next to a washing machine that is going.

Wife, from other side of house, asks something - can't make it out.
I say "What?", begin walking in her general direction.
Wife repeats question
This time I'm able to make it out, stop walking, and respond with the answer.
Wife says "What?"
I respond with the answer in a louder tone of voice, resuming walking in her direction.
Wife says "What?"
I repeat answer in a really loud voice.
Wife responds "DON'T YELL AT ME!"

Funny that, I thought it was just me ?

Has anyone ever noticed that when you yawn it actually makes you deaf momentarily?


That's why I get into trouble for not "hearing" things that the galactic ruleress has said - it's probably because I'm bored.

I'm so deaf, any back ground noise whatsoever makes hearing anyone quite hard.
Even clearly hearing what is on the TV is straining.

I had the problem of wife talking to me in a soft voice while facing the other way across a busy highway etc etc.
I bought one of these coffee cups.

I have told Mrs. CPT that if she can't see my face while she's talking to me, I can't hear her. I have been telling her this for years. It's like pissing into the wind.
Like FullOppositeRudder, I now feel so much better; I, too, thought I was alone with this problem.

We shop regularly at a large department store which is about twenty minutes walk away along a very busy and noisy road, during which journey Mrs SJ chats while usually walking just in front so I fail to hear much of her conversation. Sometimes we get the bus, which is usually very quiet or silent and during which journey she says not one word.

She puttering in the garden, me reading.
"Bat."
"Yes?"
"Bat."
"Yes?"
"Bat."
"Yes?"
"Bat."
"YES?"
Deadly silence. I get up and see whatsit she wanted. "I don't want anything, you YELLED at me!"

Thank you all so much, again I thought it was only me suffering from this I was told that it is very annoying when I don't answer
her instantly. The fact that sometimes I am thinking about a reply ( if I actually heard her ) isn't a good enough reason. I shall try the
"if you can't see my face I can't hear you" but I suspect, like others have found, that that won't work either.

I frequently annoy Mrs. ExS by interrupting during her discourse - Life's too short.

"The fact that sometimes I am thinking about a reply"

I got yeld at for that the other day

I was thinking about what she said so she got told to hold on in no uncertain terms.

Like everyone else, I am glad I am not the only one, even if I am guilty of doing some of the things myself !

I get in trouble for not listening, because I'm usually not.

And if she asks me what I'm thinking, I have to make up and answer, because "wondering if I could see your Boobs" apparently isn't appropriate :o

Oh, and it's not "multi tasking", it's "multi starting", nothing ever gets finished.

There's not much more annoying (well there is of course!) than loads of started, but unfinished tasks all around the home. Perhaps it's more of a male thing, cos there's no black and white, but starting, completing and finishing a task brings about a deep satisfaction to me. Toilet cleaning and other yukky jobs notwithstanding.

Glad I read this thread, it seems to be a near Universal constant in regard our ladies engaging in conversations three rooms away or when us men are needing to concentrate on some task or other.

Correct, beaufort1, they're not born, they're cloned and then trained telepathically or summat to be so alike in many ways.

Besides, if they were as good at multitasking as they claim, then what's so difficult about having sex and a headache at the same time?
