Very Funny Story to Relate

Today, my wife and I were looking at a property, and while waiting for the realtor to arrive, we engaged some people next door in conversation about the neighborhood. We asked if it was quiet. One lady responded, "Oh, very quiet." Her son responded, "Except when the dogs are barking at 3 a.m.

Being one who often wears hearing aids, I replied, "Well, it helps if you're deaf!" I pointed to my hearing aids.

There was a strange reaction to that. Normally, people smile at that. They seemed a bit uncomfortable.

Just then, the daughter's husband came out of a camper they were working on.

She started signing with him as did the rest of the family.

I'm still laughing about that.

    I don't have the market cornered on prickdom. I'm good, excellent actually, but don't have a monopoly.

    Classic.............put foot in mouth.................or ear in this case...............felt a tad awkward didn't you.

    Then again, how would anyone know who doesn't live there that their was a deaf person around? Did they relate the story to the man who came outta the camper? Well, look at the bright side he didn't hear you.

    No, they were very nice. It was - how would you say it, ironic as hell.

    The best news is...we're not buying the house.

    Depends on how much bass you use in your stereo settings.
