Hearing and listening

I have an old phone, and it’s gotten to the point that — if conditions are less than ideal — I have a hard time hearing what’s being said.  I’ve also discovered, thanks to the phone, that I don’t always take the time to focus and repeat what I think I heard.  In other words, I don’t always listen.  The phone, by flagging my laziness, is actually improving my listening skills.

I still need to get a new phone.
