Dear Auntie Linda, I betrayed a friend’s confidence and caused her to lose her job. I feel horrible about it. What do I do? Feel like a rat.
Dear Rat, I am sure you do. Why did you betray the confidence? Was it necessary? Did it relate to job performance or a moral or ethical issue related to work? If it wasn’t necessary and you just divulged something unnecessarily, it’s not too likely you’ll salvage the friendship, but an apology might be in order.
Dear Auntie Linda, I bought a jacket at a church thrift shop and found a diamond bracelet in the pocket. I appraises for twelve thousand dollars. Should I report the find to the gift shop.? Lucky
Dear Lucky, I think it’s very likely that bracelet was accidently left in the jacket pocket. You should report finding a bracelet to the thrift shop and leave your contact info, but I wouldn’t leave the bracelet or volunteer too much info. Auntie Linda
Dear Auntie Linda, My friend’s husband is seeing another woman. Should I tell her? Know something
Dear Know, Not unless you are the other woman and you’re wearing your running shoes. You could be wrong or she might already know. Auntie Linda
