Friend: Maybe you’d better understand these problems I’m having if you wore hearing aids too…

Audiologist: If I wore hearing aids I couldn’t do this job!

…..oh come on Mr Audiologist!! Bloody hell. What new level of ignorance is this?? Maybe if you knew how to do your job properly and set up hearing aids correctly you’d realise hearing aid wearers can (as many do) work as audiologists. Shameful.

The audiologists who wear hearing aids do tend to be better as they seem to care about their patients and have shared experiences ie they can better understand problems hearing aid wearers face (especially when the devices aren’t set up correctly…).
