It must look weird when I change volume


Mork calling OrsonI have ITE hearing aids with a volume control on them. I tend to change the volume quite often – for example I have them up full when in the office but I usually turn them down a bit when I go outside to stop some of the traffic noise.

It hadn’t occurred to me until just now how weird it must look when I’m changing volume. I use my thumb to give the volume knob a twist. I’ve also got this thing where I rotate the knob backwards and forwards a bit until I find the volume I want, I don’t know why I do that.

God knows how that thumb-in-the-ear-twist-jiggle thing looks to other people. They either think I’ve got a real itchy ear problem or some kind of nervous twitch – or I’m doing a Mork calling Orson impression.
