So for those of you what has been your best, funniest or worst memory about wearing hearing aids?
For me my best memory was the first time I heard rain. I’d never heard rain till I got my first pair of digital aids. Sat in the car going what the %$-@ is that noise?Everyone was amazed I’d never heard rain before of course I started crying but happy tears not Sad ones.
Worst memory having an Audi accuse me of being vain I was a teenager at the time and complained that my hearing aid whistled none stop allowing me to hear nothing. She didn’t believe that’s why I wasn’t wearing the aid that day when I visited till she listened and went oh dang that’s broken. I was so upset and mad as well as offended as I always have worn my aids despite disliking them at that point.
Funniest memory but not funny at the time, I’d put my hearing aids on the fireplace usual nightime spot high up and where my parents could grab them and check tubes or clean the she’ds foe me I’d never had an issue before, my golden retriever for some reason decided to grab them and proceeded to drop them in my garden. we spent three hours hunting for those when my mum comes running going f found them in the garden.
to this day I still wonder why my dog did that shed never touched them before or after in her life an no one had been in the garden that day I was usually first up out of the family. Funny because she didn’t chew or take items except carry socks.
