Ha! I know what you mean. First job when i was 14 was as a trap boy at the local gun club. Then i got in to punk rock, then the shipyard, track gang in the subway, maintenance mechanic at a stone quarry, bang bang bangin' away every chance i got all the while, and ear plugs are for sussies. Yeah, sissies that can still hear.I never did, never in the pressroom either. And of course not at the Sammy Hagar/Boston concert (nor others to follow).
welcome to the half deaf club!mine is because of to much gun fire in SAM'S ARMY in the 1960's. we were not issued with ear protection.When on a range I wear glasses and ear protection. When hunting I wear glasses because they are prescription to see well but I don't use ear protection. Sometimes one needs to hear things that the plugs block out. For a shot or two I can put up with the noise beins I'm half deaf already.
