I can’t stop online shopping! I just love the convenience of it but now I’m broke as hell. Please help. Tharshini, Cheras The only person who can help you is yourself! And it’s not that you can’t, you just don’t want to. If all else fails, cancel your credit cards. I had a massive credit card debt for years, it’s no fun I assure you. Don’t get to that point. How do I satisfy food cravings without actually eating what I crave? Lee, Kepong I once read on Facebook about the three-day rule: when you want something really badly, hold off for three days and see if you still want it. If you do, live a little and go for it. If you don’t, then craving resolved! It has actually worked for me, and not just with food! My colleague likes to cut his nails at his desk. How do I tell him I don’t appreciate the stray fingernail near my keyboard? Amir, KKB ‘Dear colleague, I don’t appreciate the stray fingernail near my keyboard. It’s very disgusting. Eeeyer ...’ How do I bail on plans with friends without hurting their feelings? James, Hulu Selangor My suggestion is to just bail ... if you can’t be bothered to catch up with them, why are you so concerned about their feelings? One of the biggest lessons my late father taught me in life is that friends come and go; if they stay forever, then it’s a bonus. They all can’t be bonuses!
