Outline Edit

06:59 - When people give birthday/Christmas/valentine cards and such, when is it okay to throw them away? We all know the cards will get thrown away eventually; should we throw them away in front of the giver after searching it for cash, or perhaps just cross the name out and re-gift it as an eco-friendly gesture? -- Hoarding Hallmark

14:52 - My friend started a comic book store in our small town a little over a year ago. He plans to go out of business soon. What's the etiquette for the death of a friend's dream? Do I send him a card? If it makes any difference, he is not into hugs. -- Mourning Ms. Marvel In Logan

28:29 - I recently moved to a town that has a reputation for being kind of dangerous. More oftentimes than not, I find myself on the other end of some aggressive stares from rough-looking individuals.

With that in mind, what are some things I can do to wig out people who try to stare me down? -- Glaring Gladiator In Gilroy
