      Ummmmm, yeah.

      I'm not an ENT or an audiologist but if I were you I'd just check the enlistment paperwork. Usually they'll check off either NO or NO-GO on the form next to those numbers.

            Don't worry. If you're trying to get into the Guard with either H-1 or H-2, then you're fine. It's when you hit the H-3 category is when you get DQ'd or at the very least need a waiver. I have H-1 and I can hear a mouse fart from the other side of a football field.

                  No.

                  Your hear your wife just fine. You're just not listening to what she's saying.

                    No, I listen, I sometimes hear, but I never understand.

                      Understanding is a whole different trait.

                      Caring?

                      Yeah. I think you get it.

                      Yes, I know you want to move that 20'X15' painting I just hung upstairs BACK downstairs.

                      Did I hear you? Yes.

                      Did I understand what you just said? Certainly.

                      Do I care. Hell no.
