Sorry for any delay, folks. Dear Abby's last article was for deaf people.
Here's the source for my letters.
Here's the B.S.
DEAR Jerkass: I'm a twice-divorced woman who found my present husband late in life. I'm in my early 60s, and my husband is in his 70s. We married quickly because I didn't want to be alone in life and I thought I loved him.
My husband works while I stay at home because of a medical condition. Because I get bored, I spend some of my time communicating with and texting male friends from the past and one of my ex-husbands.
We have fun texting and sometimes it goes a little beyond that. I realize I am married and my ex is engaged, but how harmful can this be? I don't think I'm hurting anyone, and it helps the day go by.
Is this considered cheating? I don't think it is because my ex and I live in different states and the chances of us ever getting together again are slim to none. -- PASSING TIME
It's called emotional cheating, and if you're hiding it from your husband, it's also called "lying". If this is as harmless as you say it is then why are you hiding it? If the chances are "slim to none" of you getting together, why bring it up or encourage it? If you caught your husband flirting with another women, or having lunch with her and talking about sex with each other you would get pretty pissed off. What does it matter that there is a digital buffer that slows you down from actually doing anything?
Come clean to your husband and break it off with the sex talk with others. Really, you should be old enough to know better. All you've done is reinforce my belief that stupid, self centered people get old, too.
I'd expect this kind of shit from some 23yo who's interested in jellybeans and stickers, or other bullshit.
Get a goddamn hobby. People like you piss me off.

This is where I take a Dear Abby column, and add my own brand of advice. I started by calling it Dear Crabby, but that's taken and JERKASS seems more fun.
