The secretary, I gather, does. Well, MLss Secretary, t don't you bother your liitlc head about your boss'" relationship with nLs wife, That is his and her department— and strictly private. And If it isn't too impertinent, may I ask you a few questions? What makes you think that you arc working for a misunderstood man? Did he tell you so himself? Or did you Just sit down and figure out for yourself that you arc the only woman in the world who has his best interests at heart? Either way you're on dangerous ground. If he told you, then you can be pretty sure he Is up to no good. Self - styled misunderstood husbands never are. .. And if you've figured It out for yourself that Is a .pretty good indication that you are taking too personal an interest in your bass. It's even posMble tha you're getting ready to sell yourself on the idea that, since his wife doesn't understand him, you can convince him thut you do. Many a marriage has been broken up by a woman who Is clever at convincing a man he is misunderstood at home. ' "Mfsunifcrstootl" Plaint Is Common The reason I'm answering your letter In print Is because you aren't the first woman to write me a1x>ut what a "crying shame" It Is that some perfectly wonderful boss has a wife who doesn't appreciate or understand him. And In" every case I'm skeptical, for several reasons. One is that Just a woman knows how a mnn acts around an office doesn't mean she has any idea of what he Is like at home. And the other reason is thtit the working girl who claims her employer's wife doesn't understand him always imnllcs that she does. And that. Miss Secretary, is how triangles get started. So my advice to you Is to slop worrying about your boss' private life. That really Isn't part,of a secretary's Job.
