Ask Amy: Momzilla threatens to stomp on wedding

You can say, “Hey, I know this is not my business, but I do want you to know that I’ve seen people other than “John” coming into your apartment while you’re at work.”

After that, let her handle this, if she chooses to.

Dear Amy: “Resentful Future Hostess” reported having many new “friends” since moving to a paradise vacation spot. Kudos for your advice for her to pull back the welcome mat.

I moved to a lovely area and experienced a newfound popularity from people I barely knew wanting to visit.

I ended up getting an unlisted number.

– Still Happy


Dear Happy: Problem solved.
