Alas! Yes, spouses who's domain is the kitchen will be very specific (and territorial) about that environment and what goes on in it. I say "spouses" so I won't sound sexist, but my wife is the one who does this as well.
Once we had a guest and I had the duty of placing the corn in the water. That was it! Nothing to it. So, I put the water on and *immediately* placed the corn in and waited for the water to boil. Luckily my wife was not present, but she did ask from an adjacent room (she might have just come back from an errand, I forget) if I had waited for the water to boil *before* I put the corn in. I looked around, panicked, and looked at our guest, who also looked bewildered, and, I'm ashamed to admit this, I lied! I said "of course!" to which she replied "Good job!". Whew! Saved! The corn turned out perfectly and she never knew of my culinary faux-pas. She even mentioned how good it was. I made sure I told her that it was because she taught me so well....

Wow. Your wife sounds like a total bitch.
