Ms. Meniscus

The advice lady who's not afraid to tackle all manner of life & love questions

The Ungrateful Children

My husband and I have always believed in an allowance for our children -- we didn't want them to be distracted from school by jobs. But now that they're college students, all they want to do is spend our money like crazy. Why do they do this? -- Betty in Birmingham

The Perpetual Victim

No one in my family supports me. My husband and children will defend everyone under the sun, no matter their fault -- except for me. I give, and I give, and I give ... and get nothing in return. -- Luisa in Lexington

The Missed Appointments

My friend breaks our plans all the time. I've confronted her about this, but she thinks I'm making a mess out of nothing. What should I do? -- Rita in Rohnert Park

The Missing Food

My roommate keeps eating my food and it's driving me mad. What do I do? -- Lilly in Lubbock

The Thank You Card

I send gifts to my son and daughter-in-law, but get no thank you cards in return. To me, this is very rude, and saddening. What do I say? -- Sad Susan

The Abuser

A bud of mine and I became good friends in college because he helped me through a really sad time. Now, however, he blows me off frequently at the last minute, always disrespects my wishes when it comes to hanging out, and seems to have more fun with new friends he's made ... who happen to socialize on a slightly higher level than his old friends ever could. What do I do? -- Pat in Purchase

The Indecisive One

I fully expect that when we graduate high school, many of us friends will grow apart -- and that's OK. I have this friend, though, that bugged me, bugged me, bugged me to keep in touch and not let things change. I've tried several times, but haven't heard a peep ... except when she contacts me every few months complaining about how we're growing apart. How do I stop this? -- Lucy in Logansport

The Disrespectful Interloper

My friend keeps promising me that he'll take care of this errand for me (in fact, the only reason I didn't take care of it two weeks ago was because he insisted he'd do it). Now I'm coming up against a deadline and don't know what to do. -- Austin in Austin

The Yucky Medicine

We have to give our dog liquid Benadryl to curb his reverse sneezing episodes, but he hates taking it and fights us. I'm worried we'll hurt him. Is there any other way? -- Becky in Bakersfield

The Flaky Skin

Our poor dog has terrible dandruff. What can we do? -- Tammy in Toronto
