Man's hand pointing down in disapproval

“Ready to sock it to those relatives? Here we go….”


You’re tired of everyone who claims to love you, saying that you have something wrong with your hearing. You’re tired of telling them they don’t know what they’re talking about.

Yet, they’re saying you have a hearing loss and need to get it treated. Pssshhh!

But we know you have it in you to be like Rocky, who kept getting back up and trying again. Just like him, you can’t ever give up on your denial truth.

A recent study about hearing aids found that “only 14% of the approximately 48 million Americans with hearing loss use them.” You know what this means, right?

It means avoiding hearing treatment is a SMART idea!

And we’re here to back you up on this. So much so that we’ve put together a handy-dandy list of five great reasons why it’s a great idea to keep dodging those pesky relatives. Five reasons why you should never treat a hearing loss.

Ready for the learning adventure? Ready to sock it to those relatives? Here we go….


#1 – You’re Tired Of Communicating

You’re done. Communication is one of those new-fangled words that keep getting thrown around, but it’s meaningless. If you don’t want to listen, then dang it, you shouldn’t have to.

Why would you want to listen to your kids’ laughter, your grandkids’ stories, or your spouse’s chatter when you can avoid it all and sit on your own in the back room. Again. With your trusty TV.

This is the beauty of not treating a hearing loss. Everyone eventually just leaves you alone. So alone.


#2 – Your Boss Is Annoying

You’ve been on the job longer than anyone there. You know what to do and how to do it. So why should you have to listen to your boss when you’re the one who should be in his place telling everyone else how to do things?

If you can’t hear him, then he’ll leave you alone and find someone else to hire annoy!


#3 – It Means You’ve Stepped Up Your Game!

Now that other people have started to do things for you like speak up, speak more clearly, and repeat themselves, you’d be doing them a disservice to get hearing treatment.

Seriously, they should be doing all this anyway, no matter who they’re talking to. And you’re acting as grandmaster of it all.

They’ll never get tired of that because they’ll be too grateful, spending the rest of their time with you thanking you for your great wisdom.


#4 – Your Music Is Better Loud

When you have that remote control in your hand, you are at the top of your game. Shake the walls. Shake the floor. Shake the ceiling.

Queen at the Wembley Arena has nothing on you in your living room.

Rock and roll has its own spirit, and you’re the one to let it out.

Never mind what your family has to say about that. It’s just one more thing they’re wrong about, and why pander to them now?


#5 –Spend Your Money On The Good Stuff

Clearly, the “good stuff” doesn’t include hearing and communicating better. What kind of wimp would choose that over buying something big and powerful?

Want a new laptop? Sold. Want a new stereo for the car? Sold. Want a trip to Cancun? Sold.

But a hearing device? Seriously? Hearing healthcare is for people who are too soft, and that’s the last thing you are.


Yes, Of Course, We’re Joking. Delaying Hearing Care Is Serious.

We’ve heard every excuse under the sun with our 14+ years of practice here in the South Bay of Los Angeles, and yes, some of the excuses make us laugh. But not being able to hear clearly can be devastating.

It affects your work, your social life, your close relationships, your friendships, your enjoyment of, and well, everything.

And when those around you have to step in to help you out all the time when they know hearing treatment would make their lives, and yours, less stressful and frustrating, your avoidance makes it even hard to be kind.

Nothing, and we mean NOTHING, is more important than your health. That includes your hearing.

Even if you think your hearing is fine, trust your loved ones and get a hearing test by a professional as the first step. You might even get to prove them wrong.

A hearing test is short and noninvasive, and we’ll give you the results immediately, along with treatment options. At least then you’ll know where you stand and can take the next best step for you (and your family).

To schedule your hearing test with South Bay Hearing, or if you have any questions at all about hearing loss and treatment, then contact us today.

There’s no good reason to delay treating your hearing loss, and you’ll discover a whole new world after you take that first step toward better hearing.
