You’re Old, Dad

My dad is getting older and has recently retired from the workforce. He is a sociable man who loves to talk. In the past few years, his hearing has gotten worse, and he spends a lot of time asking people to repeat themselves or totally missing out on what someone said. This is frustrating to say the least. When I call him on the phone, he can’t hear me, yet he still answers the thing when he hears it ring. I fuss at him constantly. Why does he need a cell phone if he can’t hear the person calling him? Why does he answer it? Why won’t he go get hearing aids Stockport?

My sister and I cut out ads from the local newspaper for specials the local audiologist runs, but Dad just laughs when we give them to him. We are so frustrated that he doesn’t want to solve his problem.
