What do you do when the pushy, rude, and humorless try to rule your world? You ask Auntie Jodi. Her Helpful Hints provide a manual for today’s perplexing situations, and assist you in navigating them with humor, snark, and a much-needed smile. Some hints are laugh-out-loud funny, and others provide a polite, thoughtful path. Once in a while, we must err on the side of the “overly assertive” in order to get the obnoxious in our midst to back off. Auntie does not believe that being polite means being a pushover.
