Did he say that's what he was doing or is that your surmise? Of course he could say that's what he was doing rather than treat you in an offensive manner!

He told us what he was doing. I’m not sure he was all that rude – you have to remember that I could not understand him until he revealed his ‘test’. He was speaking at normal volume, normal speed, and acted like ‘normal’ people do when confronted with a HOH person. They remember for a minute that you asked them to make accommodations and then forget. I deal with that attitude from clerks in stores and other strangers all the time. I appreciated his care – after I realized it was a test and calmed down – in wanting to assure himself of just how much a cochlear could benefit me.
