Make you repeat yourself after you’ve just said something at a perfectly audible volume then get all offended and say something like ‘im not deaf!’ When you say it again slightly louder than the first time.

I do this all the time

Sometimes to give myself time to think, sometimes because I wasn’t listening

People who @83746725 ?

Do you do the indignant ‘I’m not deaf’ bit???

No, I’m not a prick*

*in this way

It’s still not ideal but I’ll let it slide then.

This is a constant issue in our house. I have bad sinuses which makes projecting my voice quite difficult and the TV has partial deafness in one ear. It’s like living in a really shit sitcom.

Mrs casinobay does something similar to this.

I’ll say something, she will say “what?”, I’ll keep quiet for a few seconds, then she will respond to what I originally said.

used to go out with this girl at college who would totally shut down this kinda behaviour

her: what time you wanna meet later?
me: what?
her: did you really not hear or are you just being a twat?
me: …7ish?

This is the problem I had and it got so bad that my bf suggested I was genuinely going deaf so I went down that route to get tested.

But I have superior hearing! That of a 10 year old!

so FUCK HIM SPEAK UP

OK, I’LL DO THAT IN FUTURE.

What?

I often ask people to repeat what they say - it’s because I’m slow on the uptake and often takes a second or two for what they’ve said to register. By the time they’re halfway through repeating, I’m beginning my response and talking over them.

Pretty embarrassing tbh.

my dad does this. conflicted because its usually when he’s offering something.

dad: 'Tea?'
me: 'no thanks’
dad:'you don’t want tea?'
me: ‘…’

i do this. who doesn’t want tea tbh?

If the TV says sorry I love to repeat myself.
Eg
Me - Well that was a shit choice of film
TV - sorry
Me - THAT WAS A SHIT CHOICE OF FILM

Irks her so bad.
