My father and brothers said the same thing.  Dad said he could hear the
newspaper pages turning, but not what people said.  My brother complained
that he was not interested in hearing the silverware being put away, and
he still couldn't hear conversation.

I've known *two* people who were pleased with their hearing aids. One was
born deaf and is *thrilled* to hear anything at all, but he really can't
understand what people say.  The other was a music teacher and director,
and he seemed quite happy, and encouraged me to get hearing aids.  Since
he was the first person I'd talked with who was enthusiastic, I didn't run
out and spend the money.

One more fellow I know with hearing aids... he's going every week or so
for adjustments.  His wife says they don't work right.  ??  ;)
