Give thanks in all things and watch what happens

Dear Lucy: I work for a woman who has no idea how to give a compliment! She looks for the slightest error in all of my work. I am constantly on pins and needles, waiting for her to criticize my work. My last boss was the same way. I know that I do good work and pretty soon I am going to go off on this woman and probably lose my job. Help!

Hey ‘Just Mad’ – ‘Stupid is what takes us into learning’

Dear Lucy: My heart is just breaking. My daughter has been married for six years to a man that I begged her not to marry. He is just trifling, he's cheated on her, never held a steady job and now he's left her with four children, ages 1-6. I am also very angry. I am too old to raise kids but I know I will have to help her out. I wanted to retire this year and now I don't see how I can. I am a widow and raised my three children by myself. I just did not want this for her. Every time I talk to her, I just want to scream and ask her how she could be so stupid! Help.

Stop with the ‘only’ stuff about white, rich, good-hair people

Dear Lucy: There is a woman who has worked with me for 6 years. We have the same job title and she does way less work than I do and gets away with it. Recently a position came up in another department. She applied for it, got it and a substantial increase in pay. I am definitely the better qualified and I have carried her for years and she gets the reward! How is it that people like her always come out on top while those of us who work hard get so much less?
