I was at the pool today, and in the hot tub afterwards a woman I have noticed but never spoken to asked me where I got my fins. We began talking and the next thing, I am hearing how much of a burden her spouse is since he had a stroke. As we talked, I still wasn't seeing what she talked about, as she described her spouse as still pretty functional physically and cognitively.
The next thing I know, I am hearing about how abusive he is and how she can't leave him. It boils down to the fact she doesn't want to lose the lifestyle she has.
At some point, I notice the husband is using a walker with the wheels on the front, dangerous in a wet area as it could so easily slide out from underneath him if he started falling. I point this out to her and she points out how easy it would be to remove the wheels, having been instructed on how to do so.
While we are holding this discussion, I notice the malevolent glint in her eye.
