Tuesday is Advice Day:




Many of you have written in for my advice so I decided to devote Tuesdays to answer your mail.


Dear Brian,
My roommate keeps eating all my peanut butter. I've asked him to at least replace it but he never does. So not cool. What should I do?

Dear Mad,
My Aunt Connie breeds beagles and she always says that avoiding disagreements is the key to a happy life. Do you really want to pick a fight over a small grocery item? Buy more peanut butter.

Best of luck,
Brian

Dear Brian,
I'm about to be sued and evicted for non-payment of rent but it's not my fault. I pay every month (on time!). My roommate Natalie hasn't paid her half since June because she spends all of her money on expensive handbags and going out every night. I've got mid-terms coming up and I'm going to be homeless!!!

Dear Confused,
Roommates look out for each other so the answer is simple. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and do what's right. Cover Natalie's rent until she decides to pay it on her own. The last thing you want is a squabble to interfere with your schoolwork.

Best of luck,
Brian

Dear Brian,
We need to pick roommates for next semester. Both Simone and Véronique asked me. I love them both dearly. How do I avoid upsetting one of them?

Dear Panicked,
Que sera, sera. Flip a coin.

Best of luck,

Dear Brian
I'm shaking as I write this. I just came back early from chem lab and, as I got to my dorm room, I could hear my girlfriend in there with my roommate Dan. We're engaged and Dan was supposed to be my best man. I ran off and am writing to you from the Starbucks across from the Student Union. Is my life over?


Signed,
Terrified in Tucson



Dear Terrified,
It was smart to run away. A confrontation would only lead to their embarrassment. You'd be wise to mind your P's and Q's on this one. Grandmother always preached that a peaceful home is a healthy home and she lived to be 87. Pretend nothing happened and you can avoid all the drama that comes with the infidelity and betrayal you experienced just now. In the future, when headed home unexpected, call ahead to give them a subtle warning and all will be well. 

Best of luck,
Brian
