33. Religious wack jobs trying to tell me how to have a happy marriage
I've been married for 45 years to the same woman, we're about to become great grandparents and I've been to church maybe a dozen times in the whole 45 years (excluding weddings baptisms and funerals) and yet once or twice a year I'll encounter some asshole who wants to tell me that I'll only have a happy marriage if I accept christ as my "personal savior" (is that anything like a personal shopper or personal trainer?

Usually these are thirty or forty somethings clean shaven well scrubbed and they look like people who've never gotten their hands dirty. Fortunately we live out in the country so they never stop by the house but once in a while we house sit for one of our kids and this is when they get us.
