DEAR JUDI IN PITTSBURGH: React? I'd say you are overreacting because many successful relationships involve couples of different ages. Fifty is the new twenty-five, and your husband is as young as he feels. But a word to the wise: the likelihood of this relationship succeeding is greatly diminished if people won't give it a chance.
DEAR ABBY: I work in a small office of four people. The oldest lady in the group consistently commandeers the thermostat to keep the air conditioning going at full blast even when it's cold outside. All the other workers are constantly cold. She' s my superior, but I would like to know how to handle this situation. -- FROZEN OUT
