Babs is still offering her two cents on issues that she isn't qualified to answer:
Q: I have a neighbor who has a nasty boyfriend. When he comes over, he's abusive and threatening. I finally had to call the police. My neighbors are both in their 60s. He left before the police came, but I have his name, address, license plate, etc. I've put up with his ravings for some years — and now he has threatened to do me harm. The police, though, say they can't do anything until he actually does something. I've lived in my home for 48 years and don't want to move. Our neighborhood is a nice one, except for this creep. Any suggestions?
A: I'd find myself a young, musclebound bodyguard and offer him free rent and board. Although he'll be as powerless as you to change the un-neighborly situation, at least he'll look intimidating and you'll sleep a lot better at night.
And if you strut down the street together once a week, you'll have the bonus of being the envy of all your older neighbors.
Obviously she assumes she's talking to a female reader with extra space. The correct thing to do in order to answer this appropriately would be to consult a police expert.
