Amputee Bill and the Gold-Digging Grifter

Dear Robin:

My husband’s brother Bill (62) got engaged two years ago. At first we were thrilled because he seemed so happy.

Then we learned within 2 months of being engaged his fiancé Vicky accepted over $60,000 worth of jewelry but kept making excuses why they couldn’t set a date.

My Wife is Drunk Driving

Dear Robin:

I’ve been meaning to write for a while but last night finally got me here.  After another big fight with my wife please tell me how I get her to stop drinking and driving.

She goes out occasionally with friends and comes home drunk with the car.  I always tell her to please take a cab but she always drives anyway.

Last night she arrived home wasted and we got into it.  I’m very worried.  She doesn’t drink very often but when she goes out with this group it’s always the same thing.  Last night she accused me of trying to “control her” and “ruin her nights out.”

How Do I Lose Weight?

Dear Robin:

Long time fan, first time writer! My husband is tired of hearing me complain about my weight but I’m sure he’d be happy if I did something about it. When we married almost 20 years ago I weighed 140 but today I am closer to 190.

LOL I haven’t been on a scale in over a year so who knows what I really weigh? Every time I start a new program I get bored and frustrated that the weight doesn’t come off faster and I quit.

Do you have any advice for me? This probably seems like a dumb question because I know you have some serious things coming to you every day, but it matters to me. I am free to talk by email if you want more detail.*

Is Everyone Having Sex with Their Boss?

Dear Readers:

It’s hard to believe but I received yet another email from an advice-seeker who is sleeping with the boss.  Not surprisingly, it’s a woman.

Sigh.

Of all the letters I’ve received on this subject, and there have been dozens, I have yet to hear from a man who is sleeping with his boss.  

If any of you men out there are giving your superior a little taste of your bologna pony at lunch or otherwise, please email me.  Please.
