You Might Be An Audiologist If……

Yesterday, we asked our Facebook community to complete this sentence: “You might be an audiologist if…..” We got some good responses.  Here are some additional tell-tale signs.

  • Every time you tell someone your profession, they say “huh?” or “what?”
  • You have a random copy of hearing aid software in the trunk of your car
  • You have alcohol swabs hidden in every pencil case and otoscope bag you own
  • Ears are the first thing you look at on a person
  • You cringe when someone mentions using Q-tips in their ears
  • When you’re drunk and feel like the world is spinning, you grab someone and ask them to look at your eyes to see if you have nystagmus
  • You bust out your sound level meter app….. in church
  • You have ever used the term “externship”
  • People ask you if you’ve seen the light on the other side
  • You’re not grossed out by cerumen
  • You have an urge to push an elderly person’s earmolds in properly when you’re standing behind them at the supermarket checkout
  • In public places, you try guessing what kind of BTE a person is wearing like you’re on a game show
  • You have a pair of ety plugs on your keychain
  • You look at what type of earphones people are using at the gym as they walk by you

  1. You can’t use your sound booth for the rest of the day when a patient brings their guide dog with them into the booth… And the dog farts
    (true story!)

  2. You don’t laugh when you see people talking into the response button…
    You look for yellow things in the ears of construction workers as you drive by…
    You use an otoscope instead of a magnifying glass at home…
    You experience BPPV rolling over in bed and think ” Cool!” And do it again…
