Bom today, you are one whose varied interest provide excitement at the same time that they promote confusion. Never content to be involved in only one thing at a time, you enjoy and actually thrive on a kind of spiritual upheaval that keeps you emotionally keyed up and intellectually stimulated. You work well with others, but best by yourself. You have a knack for scheduling your time so that, no matter how many activities you have going at once, you are usually able to complete them all satisfactorily.
You have artistic tastes on the one hand and expensive tastes on the other. The fact that the two do not always coincide only serves to further the general confusion of your daily life. You welcome the company of others and have a special love for

DEAR ABBY: We work in a public office and have contact with many people every day. Our problem is one co-worker who constantly chews gum in a manner that is very irritating to those of us who must work closely with her. The incessessant noise of her chewing, popping and
cracking continues without consideration for co-workers or clients.
We have nothing against chewing gum if it’s done in an unobtrusive way, but this person is driving us up a wall with her
noisy chewing, cracking and popping. Help!
OUT OF PATIENCE
DEAR OUT: If the gum chewer is unaware of her offensiveness, one of you should tell her privately in a friendly way. If she is aware and doesn't care, tell her supervisor. And since there are several of you, there's clout in numbers. So get cracking!
DEAR ABBY: I am a man, 74, very active and in good health. I have been a widower for five years. About 20 days ago I had surgery and was in the hospital for eight days. (Nothing serious.)
I had a middle-aged nurse taking care of me. She went out of her way to be nice to me and was extemely patient and goodnatured. Just before leaving the hospital I told her how much I appreciated her, and I tried to give her a $20 bill. She refused to accept it. In fact she acted a bit insulted.
Abby, was I out of line by offering her a little tip for her services?
DEAR GRATEFUL: Although you
meant well, nurses do not as a rule accept tips. But it would not be out of line to send her a thank-you card or a small gift.
