Dear Al A Carte,
A coworker is driving me crazy.
She gets over-stressed at work and then makes outrageous accusations. Sometimes she apologizes, but you can tell it isn’t sincere.
What would you suggest I do to protect myself from her abuse?
Stay cool as a CUCUMBER.
4 large cucumbers peeled, seeded, and chopped
¾ cup chopped green onions
2 tsp dried dill
1 32-oz container vanilla yogurt
Place all ingredients in blender. Puree til smooth.
Refrigerate for one hour.
Pour into cups and top with a mint leaf.

If you’ve done nothing wrong, it shouldn’t matter what she says. You might want to keep a log of her outbursts. Then, if the situation continues, you have proof and can discuss it with your boss.
