To join the TAT?


Dear Hillary,

Why do people write in to you wanting details of where to go and things like that? I know where I would tell them to go. Don’t they understand this is an Agony Aunt column, where you (try to) help the broken hearted, not act like the concierge service in the hotels. You should tell them to go and stop wasting your time.


Dear Gregg,

I can’t be as hard as you, my Petal. The Agony Aunt Code of Service requires me to be like a Girl Scout and help everybody, no matter what the reason. So even though my primary job is mending broken hearts, also will tell someone where to go to eat, as well as where to go, as you suggest.
