Atheist turns cold shoulder on Gesundheit By Abigail Van Buron c \rn »r CMMM THHM-N. v. MM *T»*-< t«t. DEAR ABBY: What would you have done in a case like this? A girl in our office sneezed, so I said, "God bless you." Instead of thanking me, she said, "You don't have to bother with that. I'm an atheist!" NONPLUSSED DEAR NON: I wouldn't have done anything. But the next tine the sneezes, tell her to take good care of herself because If she ever gets pneumonia she won't have a prayer. DEAR ABBY: I can't believe I am actually writing a "Dear Abby" letter. My husband just left for "Bosses , Night" and I'm sitting here with red eyes. "Bosses Night" is a once-a-year affair, which features dinner, live music, and no spouses! My husband thinks it's nice. I think it stinks! I told my husband that if my work had a similar function, he would strongly object to my going, and to make him happy I would stay home. He said I was all upset over nothing. Am I? How would you handle this next year? FEELING BLUE * SEEING RED DEAR SEEING: I would get together with a few of the ether "bones' wives" and treat myself to the best entertainment In town. DEAR ABBY: I've been dating this girl for a year or so. Things were pretty tight between us. We were supposed to go ice skating last week, but something came up and I absolutely could not make it. I didn't want my girl to sit home, so I asked my best friend to take her. Well, he took her all right. It turned out be took her skating on Wednesday, to dinner on Thursday, to play tennis on Friday, and to a drive-in movie on Sunday. He would have taken her out Saturday night, too, but he had to work. I didn't expect this to happen because we were such good friends I thought I could trust him. What should I do? DON DEAR DON: Start looking for another girl. But don't Name your friend. If your girl was really "your " girl, she wouldn't have been so easily lured away. DEAR ABBY: r Your computer date girl who was taken for $295 by a phony dating bureau is all wrong. Even tho her contract contained phrases like "cannot guarantee" and "whenever possible," they did guarantee some effort on their part, and they are indeed liable for this effort. By analogy, a medical doctor may state honestly that he cannot guarantee the success of a given treatment or operation. Now, if said doctor performs honestly and fails, that's one thing. But if he merely fails to perform, or performs negligently, that's something else again. The date bureau agreed to do certain things, and if they did not fulfill their promised obligations, they are nothing but "sweet sue-able"—and the sooner we sue this kind of "sue-age" the better. J.
