Ask Alice, with Alice McVeigh

On various kinds of happy Christmasses,
with classical music agony aunt ALICE McVEIGH

Ask Alice

Dear Readers,

This is what I was confronted with today:

? 'Hello,

I want you to know that I really enjoyed helping you with your Dog question on JustAnswer.com.

' I also wanted to take some time to wish you a Happy Holiday.

(Name withheld, by me, out of feelings of pity for the poor bastard, who hasn't a single clue when to summon a capital letter and when not to. I mean, I hate to be irritating, but 'Dog' question?..
