Bernadette: Why are you mumbling?
Claude: I’m not. I said, “What’s wrong with your hearing?”
Bernadette: Nothing is wrong with my hearing. You just need to speak up.
Claude: I’m practically shouting. You need to see a doctor about your hearing loss.
Bernadette: I’m not hard of hearing. It’s probably just a buildup of earwax.
Claude: This is more serious than earwax. Do you hear ringing in your ears?
Bernadette: Not more than usual.
Claude: Meaning you usually hear ringing sounds?
Bernadette: Sure, who doesn’t?
Claude: Uh, normal people. Have you been asking people to repeat themselves? Are you having trouble hearing people when there’s a lot of background noise?
Claude: It might be something as simple as an infection, but it could be more serious, like damage to your eardrum or inner ear if you can’t hear sounds at lowdecibels.
Bernadette: I am not getting a hearing aid.
Claude: Would you prefer people to yell?
Bernadette: What?! Smell? You think I smell? Well, that’s just rude!
