Ben is definitely not tech savvy enough for those Bluetooth hearing aids! He has a basic flip phone and only has that because I insisted.

Everything we paid was out of pocket, too. I do wish he would wear them — well, actually “it”, he only has one — more around the house but am at least pleased when he remembers to “put on his ears — or ear, in his case” when we leave the house.

And, I can understand how the Bluetooth ones might be seen as rude. A older man listening to tunes while having dinner with his wife or, even worse, at a family reunion or a business meeting!!

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
