Dear Todd Parker,

I've been working at the same job for a few years now. I spend long hours at work, trying to do the best that I can. I like to think that more often than not, I do just that. I know for a fact that I'm a huge asset to the company.

Here's my problem. There's this other guy (we'll call him 'Rick') who just started with us a little less than a year ago. He's everything I'm not. He's rude to customers and extremely lazy; I'm always rebuilding bridges that he's burned and cleaning up his messes. Unfortunately, I'm good at that too. So good, in fact, that my boss has begun praising this other guy's 'work ethic' around the office, telling us that we should be more like 'Rick.' There's even talk of 'Rick' receiving a promotion a promotion I've been trying to get for a couple of years now.

Dear Todd Parker,

I'm a recent graduate from one of the local universities. My time in school has been a lot of fun, but I'm ready to make my move into the real world and see what happens next.

My problem is my boyfriend. See, we've been together for the last couple of years, and I care about him very much. However, he's at least a year behind me; he won't graduate until next May at the earliest.

Dear Todd Parker,

I've tried talking about this problem with a few of my friends, but no one believes me. I can hardly believe it myself, but it keeps happening.

I work in an office with about 15 other people. We've got a small break room with a kitchen and a fridge, the standard kind of set-up.

Dear Todd Parker, (11/19/14)

Thanksgiving is coming and my kids are coming back home for the holiday. My wife and I are very much looking forward to having them all under one roof again. My older son is coming with his wife and their daughter and my daughter is bringing her husband. None of this is a problem.

The problem is with my younger son.

Dear Todd Parker,

My girlfriend and I broke up a few weeks ago after dating for about six months. There were no hard feelings or anything, we just realized that things weren't going to work. We said that we were going to stay friends; I had my doubts, but it turned out okay. We actually are still friends and still hang out with the same circle that we did before. It was weird for a while, but it has actually been way easier than I expected.

I've been spending a bit more time with 'Ally,' who is one of the girls in the group, and I'm starting to think that there might be something there. The two of us enjoy one another's company and have a lot of fun together, both in the larger group and when it is just us.
