Dear Abby: Principal should deal with blabbermouth

posted: 09/14/2014 2:36 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I have overheard a person who works as an aide at the local elementary school talking about the pupils -- discussing their special needs, behavioral issues, etc. I think it is appalling that she's relaying confidential information to others in the community.

Q. I remember George Carlin joked about how everyone is obsessed with his own "stuff" and needs "special stuff" when traveling, and then the "best of that stuff" when traveling for a weekend. I had trouble enough packing as a college kid for a weekend; I am completely at a loss as to what to bring now, as an adult. I have two long weekend trips ahead of me, in which I should look presentable. Is this within your areas of expertise?
