  • Work Advice: Minding your own business; getting others to mind theirs May 25, 2014 6:38 AM
    A co-worker recently asked me what was going on between a new male manager (divorced) and our female boss (married). How much do you get involved in rumors? Or warn HR about them?

  • Work Advice: Offering unsolicited solutions May 4, 2014 6:12 AM
    Aside from counseling, how do I learn to handle frustration in the workplace? I am, unfortunately, a very emotional person and show my frustration with situations where everyone knows things are not working, but no one wants to challenge the status quo.

  • Work advice: Music teacher’s lost income not a minor issue Apr 20, 2014 5:12 AM
    I have been teaching piano for 13 years. It is my main source of income, and I love doing it. The problem is that every so often, one of my students quits with little or no notice. My professional reputation is good enough that current or former students will recommend me to new clients, but sometimes it takes up to several months to find a replacement.

     
  • Work advice: Jokes on men? Still not funny Apr 13, 2014 6:12 AM
    The points raised in your column are serious, but it is also important to acknowledge the constant (often incorrect) negativity directed at men. My other male friends and I (in my early 30s) regularly hear female colleagues talking about how “all” men are “evil” and “sexist pigs.”

  • Work Advice: Older worker feels a chill; younger worker may be creating one Mar 9, 2014 6:14 AM
    Reader 1: It has become painfully clear over the past year that I am being excluded from activities for which I once would have been eagerly sought out as a leader. My husband says to talk to HR in case this is subtle age discrimination.

     
  • Work Advice: Elders edged out or denied entry Mar 2, 2014 6:42 AM
    Reader: My firm recently offered buyouts to administrative staff, none of whom is under 46 years old. We have heard that management would like to replace older employees with younger ones making $20,000 less. At a buyout meeting, management insisted salary was not an issue, while acknowledging our industry’s market conditions.

     
  • Work advice: No, it’s not just a joke or a compliment Feb 23, 2014 6:07 AM
    Reader 1: I work in a small, laid-back office where only 4 percent of us are women. My issue is the inappropriate sexual comments I’ve heard men in the office make about some of the other women. For example, one woman sometimes wraps herself in a blanket when cold; one guy said, “She’s probably masturbating under the blanket.”

     
  • Work Advice: Dealing with a smarm offensive Feb 16, 2014 6:01 AM
    I have a female colleague with whom I enjoy a friendly working relationship. One thing happens like clockwork the first time I see her every day: She says: “Hi. Ohh, I love your outfit!” and then looks me up and down for a few awkward seconds while I fumble to change the topic. I am generally good at accepting compliments, but come on -- there is no way my twin sets and pleated slacks wow her every single day. I have the odd edgy-fashion inspiration, but some days I knowingly arrive at work with dog hair in my sweater.

     
  • Work Advice: Is he shy, or is he staring? Feb 9, 2014 6:29 AM

  • Work advice: What’s worse than rejection? No reply. Feb 2, 2014 9:11 PM
    I’ve been hearing from enough jilted job-seekers to start a Miss Lonelyhires column. Being turned down is hard enough; can we at least establish a baseline of common courtesy? As with dating, a clear “no, thanks” generally beats dead silence, and the nature of a rejection should mirror the nature of the relationship. At a minimum, mass applicants are due an auto-reply confirming receipt and another when the position is filled.

     
  • Helping a colleague who’s homeless, not hopeless Jan 26, 2014 6:12 AM
    A competent junior co-worker recently confided to me that he has been living out of his car since his lease ended a month ago. Do I have an obligation to say (or not say) something to someone at my organization?
