Dear Dr. Phil.....
When I retired, I could hardly wait to spend time enjoying my favorite pastime -- bass fishing. I got my own little fishing boat and tried to get my wife to join me, but she never liked fishing.
One day at the Master Bait & Tackle Shop, I got to talking to Sam (the shop owner) who it turned out loves bass fishing as much as I do. We quickly became regular fishing buddies.
Now, as I've already told you, my wife doesn't care about fishing and not only refuses to join us, but continually complains that I spend too much time fishing with Sam.
Well, a few weeks ago Sam and I had the best fishing trip ever. Not only did I catch the most beautiful bass you've ever seen, but, a few minutes later Sam caught what must have been his twin brother!
So, I took a picture of Sam holding up the two great prizes we caught and showed the picture to the wife hoping that maybe she'd get interested. Instead, she threw a fit and said she doesn't want me to go fishing ever again. She demanded that I sell the boat and find another hobby.
I think she just doesn't like to see me enjoying myself. What would you do? Tell the wife to forget it and continue my hobby or quit fishing and sell the boat as she insists?
P.S. Below is a picture of Sam with the pair of bass that we caught!!
By all means, keep your hobby and get rid of that narrow-minded wife.
That's a nice pair of bass!!
