    I was just in Pep Boys yesterday. They didn't have what I was looking for. As I'm leaving a clerk asks if he can help me find something. I told him "Just my mind." He admitted that he would be of no help.

    Re: Shopping

    Sounds like me. When a clerk says "Can I help you?" my response is always -

    I'm beyond help. W A Y beyond help.

    Let me tell you about the redesigned walk-in closet we spent a couple thousand on. It was supposed to be 50/50 on space. More like 80/20 in her favor.

    Or...

    "Well I woke up Sunday morning
    With no way to hold my head, that didn't hurt
    And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad
    So I had one more for dessert
    Then I fumbled in my closet through my clothes
    And found my cleanest dirty shirt..."

    Your wife knows of what she speaks. I eBay and Amazon most of my purchases. However, grocery shopping is a pure joy for me.

    Re: Shopping

    I absolutely cannot accompany Mits to the grocery store. She keeps an "accordion folder" of coupons, filed in some obscure, inscrutable method. She will spend what I consider an inordinate amount of time randomly (to me, anyway) going through the aisles, checking shelf items against her collection of coupons, selectively putting some things in the basket... but she has amazed me at how "efficient" she is when she tells me how little she's paid for the goods. Even got two bags full of groceries once and given two dollars to boot!

    So we've got a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship: she bags an' drags it, I skin it an' grill it.
