Dear Madam Yang,
I am a coffee shop owner who has fallen on hard times.
I love my business, customers and employees, but my profits have gone down sharply in the past year.
I'm also afraid that I'm being bamboozled.
I know that 70% of all theft is by employees, and fear some of my loss is from embezzlement.
One barista, in particular, raises my suspicions.
Are my employees bleeding me dry?
Hemoraging in Hapsburg

Dear Madam Yang,
I'm a wealthy woman in the autumn of my life who's found love with a much younger man, James.
When we spend time together it's like we're the only two people on Earth.
He says he'd like to take me around the world, although I know I'd be the one paying for it.
James is very ambitious, but he's only 30 and hasn't achieved much yet.
My girlfriends say not to trust him- that he's only using me for my money.
Is it wrong to want to believe in love?
Smitten in Santa Barbara

Dear Smitten,
While all relationships are about trust, May/November romances are even harder to get comfortable in.
Besides your own reservations, friends seem all too eager to announce opinions that could be laced with their own jealousy and- IF I HAVE TO LOOK AT THAT GOITER AND WRINKLED LABIA ONE MORE MONTH THAN THIS UPTIGHT BITCH IS PAYING FOR MY SURFING TRIP AND MY WINDSOR BLACKJACK TOURNAMENT-to make sure you both have similar long-term relationship goals.

Is P.F. Jones?

Dear Hemoraging,
It's difficult to build a trusting work environment when you think you're being manipulated.
The most you FAT BASTARD WON'T GIVE ME A RAISE THEN HE'LL PAY FOR MY NEW FLATSCREEN
You should encourage THAT WEEKEND YOU WERE IN HILTONHEAD YOUR DRUNK DAUGHTER CAME BEHIND THE COUNTER AND GAVE ME heads-up if they see anything fishy.
