Dear Prudence: The “P.S.A.” Edition

A request from Prudence: be the kind of Starfleet that you wish to see in the world. Then, onto your questions with awkward situation pro Emily McDowell. My friend surprised me by covering my hotel room for her wedding – do I need to up the ante on the gift? How do I politely inform my all-female office that women can pee on toilet seats, too? And some parental conundrums: Can I tell my brother I’m not going to fund his revenge obituary about our dad? Do I need to reconnect with my abusive mother? My mom wants me to call her creepy boyfriend “Dad.” Hear back episodes of Prudence at Slate.com/Prudiepod.
