If this lady is smart, and I'm sure she is, and she's still sore about it, here's what you need to do. You need to say, "Gee Honey, I'm really sorry I embarrassed you at the store the other day." That's it. Don't apologize for correcting her, because you were right. Don't apologize for her reaction, because that's hers. Just apologize that you embarrassed her, because I'm sure you didn't mean to. I can guarantee she learned her lesson, and I can guarantee she will never do it again.
I can sympathize with the OP on this one - my SO would make the fact that I embarrassed her the focus of the argument, not the fact that she did something monumentally wrong. That being said, I might have handled it differently... But then again, I might not. Can't say for sure how I would have reacted. I hope I never find out.

You are right, she is wrong, but good luck with that.

Revolvers, “more elegant weapons for a more civilized age.”
Is this a work partner or a relationship partner? I see a lot of folks speaking as if this is a significant other rather than a co-worker.
