Okay, I’ve been around for awhile, and I’ve had my share of life experience, so I thought I’d try my hand as an advice columnist. Or blogger. I got some people with current life crises to send letters to see how I might handle ’em. See what you think:
Not long ago, my husband left me for a younger woman. I had no idea that he was not happy in our marriage. And to make it doubly devastating, I now find out that he and his skanky new girlfriend emptied our joint account. I have no job, and now I may lose my home. I have no idea where to turn. I am desperate. What should I do?

How terribly upsetting. It must be very difficult to deal with. I feel just awful for you. Hope things get better!
I’m 32, and have been doing the same thing for a living since high school. I work in a warehouse, but am sick to death of it. I’m married and have a couple of kids, and can’t really afford to go back to school. I need to pull myself out of this career hole, and advance, but I can’t do it without training. What should I do?
Gosh, you’ve sure got me stumped. You’re going to have to do something aren’t you? Well, best of luck in whatever you decide!
I recently caught a co-worker stealing office supplies and equipment at work. I know that if I mention it to him, he’ll just laugh it off. But it’s just wrong, and it makes me angry to see him ripping off the company like this. If I report it, I know he’ll get fired, and he has two small kids, and his wife is on disability. But if I don’t, he’ll keep stealing and it’ll be on my conscience as well. I don’t know what to do.
In a Dilemma
Dear In a Dilemma,
Wow, I don’t either. Either way you go, it’s going to cause trouble. I sure hope whatever decision you make is the right one. Best of luck!
So… what do you think? Do I have a future at this?
