I am at odds about my used-to-be retired husband, Mr. Tom. He taken a job at a discount department store.
Really I don't care if he works to make extra money or to get out of the house for a break.
The trouble with this job is that it is beneath his education and qualifications. Mr. Tom has a bachelors degree in chemical engineering and has worked 47 years with a major petroleum company.
Mr. Tom isn't doing engineering. He is greeting customers and handing them basket carts. His favorite task is checking in the articles that the customers bring in for a refund or exchange.
One customer actually spit on Mr. Tom when he tried to put a yellow 'return' sticker on his new wrist watch.
This job of his is very humiliating for me. My friends tease me about the minimum wage job he has and also some call him a "cart pusher" at the XYZ store. Several of them now avoid me and look the other way if we pass on the street.
I cannot change his mind.
