New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 5, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Dear Abby Girl Hooked on Hockey Player Gives Others a Cold Shoulder DK AK A DMY: I am a 19 year-old girl — fairly good looking and I’m popular A lot of neat guys ask me out but I almost always say no because I am so hung up on someone I don't even know person ally This guy is a professional hockey player for a city team (I’d rather not say which one). I feel that this problem would go away if I could just meet the guy, hut there is no way for me to meet him. I’ve tried to get an address so I can write to him, hut so far, no luck The guys who ask me out are getting pretty fed up with my excuses for not going out with them. What should I do? HUND UP DK AR HUNG UP: You could write to the hockey player in care of his team’s business office. (The sports editor of your newspaper can give you the address.) Hut get real, and don’t pass up dates with neat guys yon know to sit home and mope about one you’ve never met. Hockey players, baseball players, basketball players and football players are very much in demand by adoring young female fans, so don’t get your hopes up. Also, most of them are married. I >KAK AMMY. Picture this You go into the china section of a fine department store where brides register their china, crystal and flatware patterns. After painstakingly selecting your gift, you instruct the salesperson to have it gift wrapped and delivered to the bride-to-be (a .service provided by the store). After you have paid for the gift and left the china department, your gift is returned to the stockroom, and a card is mailed to the bride advising her that you have purchased a gift for her, and listing the amount of money you spent on the gift. Then, she may come to the store to get the cash, or use it to buy whatever she desires. This has happened frequently in the store where I have been em ployed for four months. In each case, the bride to be, when register mg, requested no gifts — only cards with money amounts. She also asked the salesperson to keep her request confidential. I feel uncomfortable and deceitful going through the pretense of assisting a customer in selecting a wedding gift when I know in advance that the gift will not be sent. Abby, what do you think? Is this a modern trend to which honest salespeople must adapt in order to work? DUBIOUS IN DOTHAN. AKA. DHAR DUBIOUS: The practice sounds devious to me. Are you sure you have your facts straight? In every reputable department store I’ve ever heard of, a gift may be exchanged for another item of equal value — but cash? Never!
