Recently I was watching the Seattle news and one of the local news stories dealt with an older woman driving her car into Lake Washington. When being interviewed, one comment made was that she worried more about her hearing aid getting water damage, than about her VW Bug. When she said this I was shocked. A hearing aid being more important and costly than a car? It really put into perspective for me the expensive costs of hearing aids. The older woman escaped the crash with her hearing aid intact and the car submerged, but she mentioned she made it out with the more costly one to fix! So if it was up to you, which would you choose, your hearing aid or your car?
