Seriously. My advice is to light that dude on fire, and THEN do all the good stuff Polly said.

On Ask Polly: My Best Friend Is A Lunatic Who Owes Me An Apology!

I miss the old comments here that were an interesting discussion with LW1. What happened to those?

On Ask Polly: I Feel Bitter About All Of My Exes And I Can't Get Over It!

@franceschances I'm glad you like that part, but that's the worst part for me. When I realize what a fool I dated, and how foolish I seemed to others, the nausea of self-recognition is overwhelming. At least for a couple of years. I can laugh about my bad college and early-twenties choices now.

On Ask Polly: Give Me One Reason Why I Shouldn't Cheat On My Wife

@themegnapkin You are correct. Draper, at least, would not refer to his children he ignores as "the little royals" or write out his justifications for cheating to an advice column. He would just publish it in the paper.

Ugh, I also watch too much Mad Men.

LW #1 imagines he is Don Draper, is probably actually Pete Campbell.
