Damn new hearing aids!!

So I've been crusin' for the past 10 years with old hearing aids and I thought all was well. My wife, on the other hand, said I couldn't hear squat. So I finally caved in and went to Costco for a hearing test. Well, she was right. My hearing abilities were in the toilet. So I plunked down the $1600 for a set of new ears. Now, I hear EVERYTHING!! I mean 10 times more than I want to!!! Took the SSR out for a good thrashing and I was shocked at all the creaks and groans coming out of my favorite toy. Now I've got to go through the whole truck and tighten up lose fittings and lube everything up! Damn new hearing aids.

You're right!! In fact these new aids have a feature that allows for directional hearing. I can focus on sounds specifically from one side or the other and even behind me!
