Dp- "muffled talking sounds" (from another room)
Me- "if your talking that to me I can't hear you"
DP- "repeats self at the same volume in the same place"

Venting here.
Happy Sunday.

Oh sorry, AIBU?

haha, YANBU, I just keep repeating 'I can't hear you', 'I can't hear you' on a loop.

If he wants you to hear, he can come to you. Unless he is stuck in concrete or mudslide.

Mudslide? Quicksand

Dh does this. I just shout 'if I couldn't hear you the first time, I can't here you the second'

It's stopped him doing it.....most of the time.

We have a "no talking to each other from another room" rule in our house.

I just don't respond. I stay completely silent. Then the offending family member has to come and find me. Then I can hear them. Job done.

That's brilliant, next time I'm going to hide so they have to find me.

Same in my house from DP and kids .....drives me mad! I feel your pain! Mumbling bastards

I've stopped responding too.

My DH does this all the time! He knows damned well that I have a hearing impairment anyway, yet he consistently asks me questions when I'm in another room or walks out of the room mid-conversation so that all I hear are ever-decreasing mumbles from the corridor. And then he gets annoyed that I don't respond/ask him to repeat what he saidangry
