Originally posted in 2010, it’s not gotten any less relevant. We’ve just added 5 years to it all.. Original post starts: My Granddad is 90+ and starting to get old (I guess it had to happen huh) and we sometimes get impatient when dealing with his hearing loss .. uh, he’s old AND he has hearing loss due to time in the military, so uh – tell me again how the hell come it’s something WE dare get cranky about? Imagine being HIM = unable to hear!!
I find it so sad how we tend to wish previously cherished people away when they become “annoying” or hard work (or whatever adjective you like to apply) and this wee story really hit home back then and still does.
