Ask Amy: Refusing the list is refusing a gift
Am I being too picky?
– Just Curious
Dear Curious: I’m certain I’ve probably done this, usually assuming there is another photo like the one I’m being shown, but from a different angle.
I agree with you that this presents privacy concerns and is not polite.
We should all keep this in mind when sharing photos and videos in a group setting.
If you have identified one friend who consistently does this, you could gently point it out: “Would you mind not scrolling through the rest of my photos? I’ve got a screenshot of my nuclear codes on there.”
Dear Amy: “Upset” wrote to you about a conflict between a married couple about how to spend Christmas.
So, your advice to this couple is that they should work things out as if they were in a holiday movie?!
And maybe Jimmy Stewart could stop by to guide them.
– Not Convinced
Dear Not: Absolutely. That’s the whole idea.
