A condition similar to that of domestic blindness, again usually affecting the males of the household. Largely effects teenagers also. It is when someone repeats themself over and over and the other party does not respond. It's like talking to a brick wall!
Domestic deafness is when a wife gently asks her husband: "Darling, can you please put on some washing?
Male: No response, (most likely staring at the football game).
Finally a response: "Oh! Sorry. What?"
