I have sensitive ears.
Not the outside, the inside. I cannot go to to fireworks displays without something plugged into my ears.
A month or so ago I was going nuts here at work because I could hear the phones in the office in front of ours here in this building and I thought our phones were ringing. The door connecting our offices is a good 100 yards from my desk, not to mention that I have no idea where their nearest phone is once you access the office. I have been in there only once.
If I put away clean dishes at someone’s house and they have heavy China, I have to place the plates on top of one another very gently or it hurts my ears.
