Dear E. Jean: What do you do when a pal is a consumer? This person’s car or truck broke down, she demanded that I wire her a ridiculous amount of money for a tow (or travel 130 miles to select her up!)—and when I politely refused, she threw a raging tantrum. She routinely lies and invents healthcare conditions to get out of undertaking points. What is the separation protocol with a buddy?

E. Jean: Nah, this is not a buddy. This is a dingbat. Want her a quite pleased lifetime, and by ignoring her from now on, you will reduce her from destroying the pleasure of yours.
