The "Annoying Wife" and "Wussy Husband"

A lot of things bother me (smelly people, Honda Elements, Kevin Costner movies, etc.) but near the top of the list has to be dictator spouses. The kind that boss their partners around in public like 3-year olds or trained monkeys. I've been taking group-boxing classes at my gym for over 4 years now, and we have this older couple (maybe 50's) that have recently joined. Some information about boxing, you need some coordination, some call it rhythm, some don't necessarily pick it up right away, and some do. But it takes time and like anything, practice, to get good at it. Anyhow, this little wife keeps yelling at her spineless husband (when the instructor is talking) "Pick up your arm", "Up Dumbass!” "Hit to the right - no the other right, wait the left!!” And mind you she's even worse than her husband. He never responds just follows her instructions. This couple doesn't know it, but the rest of us (or should I say 'me') talk about them and laugh before they come in. They're like cartoon characters. Except the poor guy can't drop a piano on her head. Because that's illegal in the real world.
