Of all things, there was a woman with her "retired husband" shopping near me. He was the most annoying shopper. Instead of waiting patiently in a chair while his poor wife tried to find something, he was actively involved in the selection. They were both more advanced in age than me, and I could tell that the wife didn't like shopping for bathing suits any better than I did. So there was her annoying husband pointing out suits (very ugly ones at that) and then when she showed him one, he would remark in a very loud voice - "Is it big enough?"
To make matters worse, he started talking to other women shoppers nearby. I hid behind a rack of bathing suits so I didn't have to deal with him. He told them how he was helping his wife find a bathing suit, and he wanted to be sure she got one that was big enough! Another woman began laughing and almost flirting with him, and his poor wife just kept plodding through the racks.
Later I found a bathing suit that met my criteria and was hurrying to pay for mine and get out of there. Sure enough, there he was at the checkout presumably to oversee her payment skills and telling anyone who would listen how he helped her. MiVida has never wanted to go bathing suit shopping with me, and I think I love him even more for that. I just hope when she got home, she make him very unhappy for a long period of time. And that brings me to
Retirement rule #1
NEVER SHOP FOR BATHING SUITS WITH YOUR RETIRED HUSBAND....
Hopefully, I won't have to shop for one for another 7 - 10 years.
