After a baby and 14 months of starvation she moved back with us. We furnished her with free room, board and laundry. She never lifted a finger around the house. Within six months she picked up a sec- ond loser and went on an- other rebellion kick. She spent the baby's first Christmas in another town with her loafer- sweetheart. Shortly after that she moved into an apartment with him unmarried, of DEAR ANN LANDERS. I only 27 years eld but I'm afraid I'll look like 50 in a year or two. My hair is turn- ing grey and my husband will not permit me to touch it up. What bothers me more than anything is that my mother- in-law keeps asking me what I'm worried about. When I tell her I am not worried about anything she insists I am hiding something, be- money you have then make up your mind. Leave your engine running while the service is being giv- en. So what if the attendant gets a lungful of exhaust fumes? If you come at a busy time and 'all the attendants are busy, blow your horn and let everyone know your time is more valuable than theirs. Finally, never have a kind word or a thank-you for the attendant. After all, he is ex- tremely -well paid and there's no sense in spoiling him.
