Is this odd?

Hubby recently went back after being semi-retired for 5 years. He is the manager of a retail store. The thing is, he doesn't want me to tell anyone where he's working or what he's doing. Really won't give me an explanation other than that's what he wants and I should simply respect that. Geez, it's not like he's working undercover or that I'm going to show everyone his paycheck. I just don't understand. Does this seem odd to anyone else? Any insight?

  • Mgr or not he is likely embarrassed about having to go work retail; esp after having been retired...it's not hard to do as he asks in this case

  • He's embarrassed. Other men his age have careers. They are accountants, lawyers, etc. He feels like his job is not good enough. Respect his wishes.

  • I hate family/friends to know where I work because they always want me to abuse my discount for them, maybe that's it.
