    GEORGIA|Jun 12, 2024

    Georgia, I have a question, You probably won’t think this is a real question, but unfortunately, it is. Are MATERNITY TESTS real? I gave birth to our daughter two weeks ago. I have red hair and blue eyes; my husband has blonde hair and blue eyes. Our daughter has grayish-brown eyes and a tuft of dark brown hair; her skin is a bit darker than ours. My parents have very dark brown hair and brown eyes, like the rest of my Sicilian/Greek family, but I got the genetic mutation for red hair. This is only relevant because my husband apparently does no...

    Georgia, I have a question, My cousin uninvited me from her wedding, where I (17) was supposed to be a bridesmaid, because I asked if I could bring a plus one. All the other family members are allowed to bring their partners. However, she won’t let me bring my boyfriend since we’ve been together for less than a year. We’ve been together for three months, and that’s a long time for me, so I don’t understand what she is thinking. She believes that I’ll be glad he wasn’t in any of the photos when we break up. I think it’s unfair that she undere...

    Georgia, I have a question, I have two employees who usually leave work at 6 p.m. They are great workers, but I don’t like that their commitment lasts only for work hours. What should I do as a CEO? Be More Dedicated Dear Be More, You should copy and paste this complaint into a table in Microsoft Word 2007, print it double-sided in landscape mode, fold it in half eight times, soak it in olive oil, and eat it. Really - really??? You have great workers who are dedicated during work hours - respect them. With love, Georgia Georgia, I have q...

    Georgia, I have a question, I’m the mother of a five-year-old. I’ve been happily married for six years - but that could change after my husband’s outlandish Mother’s Day present. He gave me - deep breath - a “Mother & Toddler” two-hour art class for Mother’s Day. I love my child; I adore the ground she walks on, and she gives me endless hours of joy. We spend a lot of time together as I am a stay-at-home mom. So is it terrible that, for Mother’s Day, I do not want to be sent off to a class with my child while my husband plays golf? I want a...

    GEORGIA|May 8, 2024

    Georgia, I have a question, My best friend (we are both 23) asked me to be her maid of honor and to plan her bachelorette party. I asked her what her ideal party was. She said it was a nice dinner with friends and some female family members, then having just the friends go to a bar since her mom and aunties probably wouldn’t be up for that. Can we say BORING? Anyway, I asked her for a list of people, and she gave me ten family members she wanted to have dinner with and about 20 friends to invite to the bar. I was not comfortable with the l...

    GEORGIA|May 1, 2024

    Georgia, I have a question, I have a relative whom we always invite to dinner parties, whether for a holiday or just for fun. She always replies that she’d be happy to attend. My issue is that she doesn’t eat our meals. She will place a small amount of food on her plate and maybe eat half. Her excuse is always that she’s not hungry at the moment. She behaves this way at the homes of other relatives, too. Also, when we go to restaurants, she never finishes her plate. I think she’s being rude in accepting a dinner invitation and never eating....

    GEORGIA|Apr 24, 2024

    Georgia, I have a question, Is telling a white lie to save another person's feelings ok? Example: I've gone from a size 18 to a 6 in the last two years through a LOT of hard work and determination. However, I am self-sabotaging and hideously body-conscious. I was having a bad day and asked my partner if I was the hottest girl he had been with. He laughed (almost too much) and said, "No, I was 18 once and have slept with girls with amazing bodies without the stretch marks you have." Obviously, that hurt beyond words. But I also know I set...

    GEORGIA|Apr 17, 2024

    Georgia, I have a question, Did I do the right thing? The other night, my girlfriend was reaching for something on a stool when she slipped and fell and injured her ankle. She was in quite a lot of pain, and we both agreed she needed to go to the ER. She asked me to drive her. Normally, of course, I would be happy to drive her. However, I had already consumed several drinks that evening and was definitely over the legal limit to drive. I told her as much and said if she could give me two or three hours to metabolize the alcohol, I should be...

    GEORGIA|Apr 10, 2024

    Georgia, I have a question, My boyfriend and I enjoy playing harmless pranks on each other. Last week, I had an important job interview, and he thought it would be funny to put a laxative in my drink, which I drank before I left for the meeting. He knew the interview's significance to me - it was my dream job. I had to turn back home while on my way there due to how unwell I felt, and I had to inform the workplace that I couldn’t make it. When he got home from work, I ripped him a new one. He just laughed and said it was retaliation for i...

    Georgia, I have a question, Every year, some family and friends throw a big Easter bash: lots of friends attend, a bounce house, a massive Easter egg hunt, and tons of food - the works. We’ve known these friends for decades; they are part of our core group of best friends. In other words, we’re like family. Our friends correct our kids and vice versa, within reason, of course. Anyway, during the party, my teenage stepdaughter came to me and said that my friend's pre-teen (7th grade) son was "roasting" my toddler daughter (16 months old...

    Georgia, I have a question, My friend posted an older kayak in decent shape but dirty and needing a facelift for free on Facebook Marketplace a few weeks ago. I reached out to him and picked up the kayak from him free of charge. I’ve spent the last three weeks sanding it down, giving it a new outer shell - rehauling the entire thing. Yesterday, I posted it on Facebook Marketplace for sale for $400. My friend texts me and tells me that if I sell the kayak to anyone, that money is his because it was his kayak in the first place. And, if I d...

    Georgia, I have a question, Why don’t people say what they mean? Alright...here we go. I was invited to the birthday party of a colleague I don’t know all that well but am friendly with. He invites me and states, “No gifts, please.” So, I went to the party and, per request, I didn’t bring a gift; I then discovered that everyone else had. So, he was a bit upset with me the next day at work because I didn’t bring a gift. I reminded him, and he said, “No gifts,” but he seemed upset about the situation. Should I have taken a gift? Does No Mean No...

    Georgia, I have a question, Do I have a right to be mad? My husband says I’m overreacting. My brother (30) was laid off with severance at the beginning of the year. His wife (25) had quit her job a week prior. They have a one-year-old child. They decided to use the severance to travel. They've spent a month in Italy traveling, two weeks in the Florida Keys, and two weeks in Turks & Caicos. My husband and I (both 45) work full time; we have two children of our own. Yesterday MY brother reached out to MY husband and asked him to pay their m...

    GEORGIA|Feb 28, 2024

    Georgia, I have a question, I (M46) am in a great relationship with a lovely lady (F45). However, she has an 18-year-old son, who I believe may have Asperger’s, who I don’t get along with at all. He’s a bit strange and never makes an effort to clean up after himself, he has poor hygiene and is socially awkward. I just bought a two-bedroom house on my own - my girlfriend did not contribute towards the house - it was all my money. I asked her to move in. I did not invite the son. I don't want him living in my home - I’d be giving up a room fo...

    GEORGIA|Feb 21, 2024

    Georgia, I have a question, I got a new neighbor. She came to say hello and in the same sentence said she was getting a privacy fence and asked if I would pay for my side. I looked at her and laughed. I thought she was messing with me. Woman was dead serious. I told her that’s not how that freaking works and I shut my door in her face after she told me I had no choice. She’s been living in the neighborhood for a week. Am I in the wrong for thinking if she wants to put up a fence she should pay for it herself? Don’t Want a Fence Dear Don’t Want,...

    Georgia, I have a question, I’m a mom to a little girl named Jubilee Sunflower Fern and I wanted to get her her first pet. I’m stuck between if I should get her a raccoon or a badger. She’s three years old so I think those would be my best options as she was born out in the woods, and has always loved wildlife. My friends tell me I’m being dumb and that I should just get a kitten. Where’s the fun in that? I really think her having a badger or a raccoon would be more beneficial. Opinion? Or do you have any other suggestions for a pet that’s no...

    GEORGIA|Feb 7, 2024

    Georgia, I have a question, I’m going to try and make this short. I live in an apartment complex and we do not have assigned parking. I know that I am not entitled to any parking space, but I feel like it’s common decency to not take a spot someone has worked to clear the snow out of. I have had an issue with a neighbor constantly taking the spot I dig my car out of and clear for the past few winters. I confronted them and asked if they wouldn’t take the spot I cleared for myself. They just claim no assigned parking, so first come first serve...

    Georgia, I have a question, Have you ever had a child who needed glasses and you find out your spouse “doesn’t believe in glasses”? Like, I’m not joking, he says glasses are a crutch to the body and the doctor is just trying to make money. Can this actually be real? I am fighting with my spouse so that my child can see! What the heck? Is this really a thing? Needing In-Sight Sight, Wow. I’ve heard of conspiracy theorists and their mistrust of doctors, but if your child physically cannot see, then....wow. Sounds like your husband’s distrust is...

    Georgia, I have a question, I am seriously contemplating going under the knife. I have a monstrosity of a nose that I just can’t pass on to my future offspring - if I fix it now they won’t ever have to worry about it. However, my husband thinks “Why stop there?” He suggested I also get a boob job because then our future daughter won’t have to worry about that either. I think that’s insensitive and he has really hurt my feelings. What do you think? Nosey and Not Well-Endowed Nosey, Well, let’s start at the beginning here. Your looks, which...

    Georgia, I have a question, I am on Tinder - often. And I tend to lean towards the hardworking men I find who work at Walmart. Why? Why am I drawn to labor-intensive workers who bring us the many household goods we know and love at WallyWorld? I can't get enough of the blue smocks with the yellow logo on the back, the calluses on their hands, and the love of mid-morning meetings. Why can't I be attracted to a doctor or a lawyer? Why a WallyWorld Worker? Walmart Lover Lover, You are a lover, not a fighter. Don't fight against those you have a...

    Georgia, I have a question, I own my own business and was forced to work on Christmas Day. My boss is a real piece of work - now he wants me to work on New Year’s Day. How do I tell him to kiss my you-know-what? Don’t Wanna Work Dear Don’t Wanna, Let’s start at the beginning...YOU OWN your own BUSINESS? Doesn’t that mean YOU are the BOSS? Are you asking me how do you tell yourself off? Well, if you need someone to tell you to take the day off - I will do that. Take the day off and enjoy the start of the new year - and get on better terms wit...

    GEORGIA|Dec 20, 2023

    Georgia, I have a question, I am an average-attractive single woman who just moved here. I am frequently approached by men of other races when I’m out and about in Bozeman and Butte, who flirt with me and try to get my phone number. How do I tell them I am not interested without offending them? I stick to my own kind. Sincerely, No Thanks No Thanks, It is fairly easy to say, “No, thank you.” But if you truly want to repel these interested men, you could tell them the truth: “No offense, but I’m a racist.” They should leave you alone after...

    Georgia, I have a question, Could I call the cops on my neighbors? They have a newborn baby who cries ALL THE TIME. The baby disrupts my sleep. The crying is annoying and makes me angry. Should I call the cops? Annoyed by Baby Annoyed, Yes, by all means, call the cops and have them arrest that baby! With love, Georgia Georgia, I have a question, There’s an error on the screen that says I need to restart to complete the update. I don’t have the time or the money to get a tech person involved, so thought I’d ask you. What should I do? Tech Unsav...

    Georgia, I have a question, How does a Thermos know when to keep something hot and when to keep something cold? I’ve been trying to trick my Thermos into making my hot coffee and iced coffee, but it isn’t working. Is there a trick I don’t know about? Want It Cold Dear Cold, When you put a liquid in a Thermos, it will keep the temperature as close to the temperature it entered at....it doesn’t decide which to make it. Though I suppose if you put hot coffee in, then a bunch of ice cubes, it could potentially get cold enough to be deemed “iced”. G...

    Georgia, I have a question, How do vegetarians feel about being made of meat? They look delicious - do they know how tasty they are? Hungry Dear Hungry, Well, Hungry, I’m worried about why you are asking this question. Yes, we are all made of “meat” but if you are feeling the urge to eat a vegetarian, I urge you to seek professional help immediately. With love, Georgia Georgia, I have a question, Is the movie SURFS UP based on a true story? My kids love this movie and I would love to take them to meet the cast on our next family trip! Cowab...
