You decided to hire housecleaners once a month. The first time they came, they did a great job, but every time since, it's been a mess. No responses to your criticisms have been satisfactory. Where do you go from here? Just fire them?
Your son just received a letter of welcome from his soon-to-be fourth grade teacher. It was a wonderful gesture, but unfortunately, the letter was filled with grammatical errors. Is there any way to offer unsolicited grammar lessons without seeming like a complete jerk?
Someone on your block keeps putting out their trash in front of your apartment — when it's not even trash day — and you are being blamed for the mess. Miriam's Advice Well offers some proactive solutions.
