While talking with my semi-deaf uncle one evening, I noticed that his “hearing aid” was actually an earphone from a transistor radio!
The wire had been cut and was sticking out of his shirt.
“How does that help your hearing?” I asked.
“Don’t help my hearing none.” he replied.
“Then how does it help?” I asked.
“Makes people talk louder.”
