Hearing Problems

Flashing her pass, Margaret boarded the bus and shuffled up the aisle, daydreaming about the ocean pie that she would be having for her tea. She was interrupted by a familiar voice.

“Oh hello, Margaret!”

It was Betty. Silly old Betty from Tuesday Club. Margaret couldn’t be bothered talking to her, so she began to edge away. “Sorry love, I can’t talk – haven’t got my hearing aid in.”

Margaret scurried off to the back of the bus. She thought nothing more of the awkward encounter until she bumped into Betty a week later.

“Oh hello, Betty! Do you like my new coat?”

Betty’s face tightened. It took her several long seconds to reply. “Oh sorry love, I didn’t see you there – don’t have my specs on.”
