Dear Tat

Dear Tat,

I'm very annoyed by this girl down river! I already beat her up and I'm still annoyed by her! What can I do?

Annoyed 1!

Dear Annoyed 1!,

Well if she is down river and she already got beaten up by you then you should just forget about it and stop being annoyed by her.


Dear Tat,

Why do people bother so hard? Do they think it's fun? Because I miss this one boy who really likes to bother. What can I possibly to do ignore that problem?


Dear Botherly,

They probably bother you because they like you. It's probably fun because they keep on bothering you. You sound like you like being bothered, so you should let that boy keep on bothering you. I don't really know what you mean by "miss." You need to give me a few more details.


Dear Tat,

I am tired of hearing this one boy whine all the time. He also cries and gets stubborn when I talk to him. It bugs me. What can I do to avoid this problem?

A bugged person

Dear bugged person,

You should stop talking to him and he'll probably stop crying and whining.


Dear Tat,

This person marks me with a pen every day. What should I do?

Marked One

Dear Marked One,

You should tell the person to quit marking you, get him unmarkable pens for Halloween, or just stay away from the person.


Dear Tat,

I always forget where I put my pencil. What should I do?


Dear Forgetful,

You should be organized with your stuff because you are old enough to remember where you put your stuff last. Try putting the pencil in your bag if it's not being used.


Dear Tat,

I get so bugged by these gossipers. They don't shut up about other people. What should I do?

Bugged 2

Dear Bugged 2,

I think they were made to gossip if they are called gossipers. Just leave them alone and let them do their own thing, and you do yours.


Dear Tat,

I miss this one person very much. He is funny and very handsome. I miss talking to him and everything. What'll I do?

Lonely One

Dear Lonely One,

You can make a manikin just like him, funny and handsome, and start talking to it. If that doesn't work I think you should call him on the telephone.

Dear Tat
