It takes more time and is possibly more complicated than a Japanese tea ceremony.
It can only be carried out in complete silence, and attempt at conversation is met with upheld hands and a pained expression.
First the aids have to be found, even though they are always in the same place. But much searching and muttering takes place.
Then they must be placed on a piece of kitchen roll, that is its self placed on a table mat.
Each aid is then brushed and poked thoroughly to his satisfaction.
One is then placed in the appropriate ear, the battery door closed and the beeps carefully counted.
This is then repeated for the other aid.
Of course the beeps don't always match, this is then the cause of much swearing and cursing and the aids being removed, with the whole rigmarole taking place again.
I also wear hearing aids, I grab mine from the pot they are kept in, wipe them over with an antibac wipe as instructed and shove them in. I usually fit them as I am walking to the car, it takes seconds and involves no pained requests for silence, no upheld hands and no swearing. I can also carry on a conversation whilst doing this.
