Helluva band but Too Damn Loud

Problems, how to get them, favorite songs to play, groupies, funky bar owners, etc. NO names of clubs, please.

I largely attribute the fact that I have an "ex" wife instead of a "late" one to selective hearing. Wonderful concept.

My lovely bride and I had a habit of saying "huh" or "what" to each other when we spoke. We heard what was said, of course, it's just selective hearing or alibi construction time, that made us say that.

We have now gotten into the habit of not repeating what we said, and politely wait for each other to respond. It does work! Slowly over time, but it does work!

My wife tends to ramble,and take a long time to get to the point. I'm a career salesperson,having spent 13 years selling cars,and 16 years in management,so I'm trained to give information in a compact form,and get the information I need quickly,as well. I'm constantly prodding her to stay "on topic". We are constantly working at our communication skills with each other.

Good for you Bubba.

Communication, especially with wives/girlfriends, is key to a successful relationship.

Funny how this thread evolved to where it's at now. But, after all, it did start out about "hearing".

Lorilu starts a post and somehow it goes beyond it's original intent. That's a good thing in my book, heh!
