That is a great story and a good laugh during an otherwise busy day at work, waiting to get out, home, load the car on the dolly and head out camping for the next four nights. I have a bit of a different take on my wife's help. When pulling into a campground that we may be meeting up with friends or family already there, of course they greet you and want to help you get backed in and set up as quick and what they think as easy as possible. However, 85%-90% of the camping we do is just the two of us. I want my DW's help because she is used to my movements backing our class A into a sight and then the procedure "we" follow inside and out too quickly get ourselves set up. Sometimes my DW will defer to the friend or family offering assistance and I have to remind her that I depend on her help because she is the one I'm trusting to guide and assist by how we always do it. It isn't that I or we don't appreciate the offer for help, it's just more efficient for us to do our thing together before we join everyone for a beer and glass of wine.

My DW has seen it a bunch of times ... but rarely at eye level!

BTW - for those that don't know, beer -thirty is a reference to 5:30 PM. NOT 30 beers!

The friendly, courteous and respectable thing for friends to do is not distract my wife and me from the task at hand.
Being "friendly and helpful" when we're backing in and setting up... and while breaking camp and/or hooking up the toad...is neither friendly or helpful.

Too many cooks can spoil the broth.
