These letters originally appeared in 1999.</p> <p>Dear Ann Landers: This is a reply to "Dilemma in N.Y.," whose ex-husband complained that his child-support money is not being spent on his two sons. The law states that the mother must give an accounting to the father on how his child-support money is spent. This is reasonable and makes a good story, but that's as far as it goes. The truth is, she can do what she pleases with the money.<p>Updated: Sun May 05, 2019</p> 677e7b5a7940508fd61493b9c9c5e9c6 Classic Ann Landers for 04/28/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/04/19/classic-ann-landers-c849a Sun, 28 Apr 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

They are the same "losers" who look for employment in the classifieds because they have exhausted all other possibilities and are pretty darned desperate. And how about us morons who look in the newspaper to find a used car, kitchen appliances and "like-new" TV sets? Heaven help us! Haven't we any other resources?<p>Updated: Sun Apr 28, 2019</p> a671637cfd7e965de8716dcd1f93bfb5 Classic Ann Landers for 04/21/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/04/19/classic-ann-landers-dd7f5 Sun, 21 Apr 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

I have a very similar situation, but I feel quite differently about it.<p>Updated: Sun Apr 21, 2019</p> 0ef4a8c12755cf68e47a72a35222d103 Classic Ann Landers for 04/09/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/04/19/classic-ann-landers-40cdf Tue, 09 Apr 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

With the terrible trouble teenagers are getting into these days, and with more of them in juvenile detention centers than ever before, it might be a good idea to run it again. &#8212; Schenectady, New York<p>Updated: Sun Mar 31, 2019</p> ecc5dee7cab5482b3d4babb6f36b4d28 Classic Ann Landers for 03/24/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/03/19/classic-ann-landers-bfac4 Sun, 24 Mar 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

The woman had neighbors who heard her scream for help, but they chose not to become involved. This will haunt them forever, knowing they might have saved her life and instead did nothing.<p>Updated: Sun Mar 24, 2019</p> 4c575cf7e4180ccadf24eff63ea75e70 Classic Ann Landers for 03/17/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/03/19/classic-ann-landers-7d424 Sun, 17 Mar 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

"Dog Lover" was amazed that her friends had shelled out $750 to put their dogs in doggie camps. You responded with a quote from your grandmother, "Dogs should be with dogs, and people should be with people." Thankfully, the thousands who work with and benefit from pet-assisted therapy don't share your grandmother's views.<p>Updated: Sun Mar 17, 2019</p> 407804e33ff29a82cd6f410df2d36b5f Classic Ann Landers for 03/10/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/03/19/classic-ann-landers-3228b Sun, 10 Mar 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

These letters originally appeared in 1999.</p> <p>Dear Ann Landers: Jack Sprat and I have something in common: Our wives are both too fat. I don't know about Jack, but I haven't had sex with my wife in four years. She gradually has ballooned in size and is now at least 100 pounds overweight. There are no physical reasons for her to be so heavy. It is simply a lack of self-discipline. She loves to eat and denies herself nothing.</p> <p>I love my wife and would never be unfaithful, but making love to this woman is physically and emotionally impossible. She is very sensitive about her weight and refers to herself jokingly as being "pleasingly plump." Ann, pleasingly plump she is not. She is just plain fat, and her obesity has turned me off to the point that I am impotent. Incidentally, I am an insulin-dependent diabetic, but my sex drive is still strong.<p>Updated: Sun Feb 17, 2019</p> 61c3fabcc7719c011fd24ec929c5c4a3 Classic Ann Landers for 02/10/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/02/19/classic-ann-landers-a7698 Sun, 10 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

These letters originally appeared in 1999.</p> <p>Dear Ann Landers: I am a postal clerk, and every day, I see many cards, letters and packages sent to our mail recovery center (formerly known as the dead letter branch) because people do not put return addresses on the items they mail.</p> <p>I find it disturbing when mail that is undeliverable cannot be returned to the senders to let them know it didn't reach its destination. Think of the thank you notes, love letters, invitations and condolence cards that never got delivered because of illegible addresses. And imagine the hard feelings, disappointment, misunderstandings and broken relationships that resulted because senders didn't take the time to write their return addresses. When there is no acknowledgment of having received the gift, the sender assumes the recipient has poor manners.<p>Updated: Sun Feb 03, 2019</p> 30d3a19eff394d06f0c2ab5593d9b4b1 Classic Ann Landers for 01/27/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/01/19/classic-ann-landers-38817 Sun, 27 Jan 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

To date, I have bought 14 house-plan books and have concluded that most architects must be men.
