L LIJJILI ]llll I~LIlILJll II ,,!Ll~lLqUll~l~lqlwU,m= =.-u SO FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3 - MON'DAY, DECEMBER 6, 2010 CAPE LIFE cape Gazette really enjoy the holidays. I decorate a lot and that wouldn't normally be a problem, but my husband seems to despise anything that has to do with the holidays. He makes a big deal about helping me when I ask, which is not of- ten because I know what to ex- pect, but I can't climb on the roof and run the lights, etc. I al- so bake a lot. and he doesn't mind taking part in eating any- thing I make, but there is always a dark cloud hanging over when he is around. I actually appreciate when he's not here so that I can really get some of the happiness from what is created without his mis- erable mood to deal with. I don't know how to change this or if I can at all. Do you have any ideas on how to save my holiday from his moods? MANNERS MATTE Maribeth Evans (( I often wonder if something horrible happened to these types of people during the holidays that they have never been able to get past. There is really nothing you can do beyond setting up a trip of some sort so that he won't have to be around to step all over your happiness. I know you must want to avoid having an argument with him about his behavior, as that will make him even worse, so I guess you're stuck with paying him as little attention as possible. Let him sulk while you find a neighbor to do the lights and the other jobs. you can't handle. Any- one could use a few extra dollars, so I don't think it would be hard to find someone to help you out. I understand how depressing it is to listen to so much negativity all the time. Where ! work l bear people complaining and making dis- paraging remarks constantly and I wonder why they are shopping at all...go home and be your mis- erable self in some dark room where no one could ever.find you, and give us all a break. Don't ever let anyone steal your happiness. You should guard it like you would one of your chil- dren. I hope you can manage to have the best holiday ever and continue to flnd joy in all that you do. Just call in sick that night Well, you know it had to come - the company Christmas party. I dread having to go every year and be jolly with people I can barely tolerate in everyday life. Thisyear we have to do a grab bag with $20 as the amount you should spend. I want to just throw a $20 bill in an envelope and call it a day. Actually, I would rather get the money than some stupid gag gift, but my desk mate told me that it would be a bad idea and I might get in trouble. My husband refuses to go with me as he gets tired of lis- tening to me, so I'll go alone. At least there will be free drinks; CUSTOM CLOSETS 302-54 i-8997 PANTRIES_ LAUNDRYI OMs -,---. GAI GES free Eomuffaf ),- www.beautifulC[osets,info that should dull the pain. Why don't they just give us some cash rather than a party? That's something we could really use. I have been sitting hereforfive minutes wondering what to say to you and frankly, I can't think of anything nice to say. I don't know how anyone puts up with you. Companies really can't afford to give many parties these days, and the fact that they have gone out of their way to show their ap- preciation for your services is re- ally nice. Even though you don't like anyone you work with, I am sure there are many who really enjoy being together during the holidays. Fm thinking of your husband and what he has had to listen to all these years. He must be totally fedup. Maybe you should spare every- one and say that you are sick and can't make it this year; this way the others in the office can enjoy themselves without having to deal with your negative personality. Honestly, 40 hours are enough with the likes of you. Maribeth Evans is owner and director of The Delaware School of Protocol in Milton.
