Colleague takes issue with hidden phone use

Colleague takes issue with hidden phone use

DEAR ABBY: I am unsure how to handle a co-worker who is constantly on their cellphone (hidden between their legs) during their four-hour work shift. I have reminded them to leave their phone in their car since they have a hard time not checking it or texting during work hours. We have spoken several times about this unacceptable behavior, which improves for two days and then reverts back to using their cellphone as usual.

Halloween is just about a week away! It’s my favorite time of the year. Not only is the weather changing and we have cooler temps, but the creativity in my family is at its height. Decorations for the Halloween party on the 24th are done and, by the time you read this, will be mostly put up. I have moved on to the foods and, since the party is tomorrow, am mostly done with those as well. If you aren’t averse to doing so in the time we are in, come out to the VFW at 1427 N. Okmulgee tomorrow evening and get some goodies! Since I was already making stuff this week, the column is what I have been working on. I had to make it easier on myself this week!

Parents disapprove of new boyfriend of different race

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 22-year-old woman who was adopted. I recently started dating an amazing man who happens to be of another race. My parents, whom I love very much, told me if I stay with him, they will disown me. They have made many horrible comments about my relationship, and I’m at a loss about what to do. I love them, but I also love my boyfriend. Please give me advice. What should I do? -- HOPELESS IN INDIANA
