HearPeers Heroes Jdashiell Posted April 1, 2019 HearPeers Heroes Report Share Posted April 1, 2019 Last Friday my wife and I went out to eat dinner with her parents Nothing out of the normal, I brought spare rechargeable batteries, a Roger Select, and my FineTuner, just like I always do. I use the FineTuner to adjust DOWN the Sensitivity settings 5 clicks, and the Volume Down 2 clicks. This always helps me hear better at the restaurant table. I bring the Roger Select to use in case I need additional listing help. As I leave the restaurant I use the Reset 🔄 on my FineTuner to UNDO the setting I made at the table. Now we made it home with all my goodies after stopping to get my new suit tailored in the Dressing room All was peachy keen at this point - however as I went to bed, I had a horrible night interrupted sleep several time throughout the wee hours, stomach upset, feverish, many toilet trips. Next morning continued and was quite lethargic 😟. Netflix therapy. Somewhere along the past several hours, I lost my FineTuner. Now it has a label on the back to call me if found. Next morning Im on the mend, I must've ate something bad at the restaurant. As Im getting dressed my FineTuner is AWOL - I searched every where. My wife helped out too searching other everywheres. So I am extremely stressed out at this point wondering if this loss is covered by Warranty? Luckily I have a spare backup FineTuner. Today I went back to the store where I was Friday evening to check the dressing room and uptown Lost and found - Alas no record of it. So Im thinking if someone did find it, SURELY they would have called me, Surely. So I go back home to look any where I might have missed, After all I did look everywhere. So I decided I needed to look under the recliner and sure enough The FineTuner was there!!! I did check every nook and cranny, moved seat cushions etc..... but not underneath the damn chair! A lot of stress for nothing The moral of my story is that we use a lot of technology in our hearing journey with CIs, and rely on it working and being there ALL THE TIME. And as such need to make certain we follow routines. Do not set your wallet and keys down to go get your sunglasses before walking out the door, You'll end up searching everywhere for you wallet and keys!
