Big Mood, Little Mood

The “Backroom Hookup” Edition

The office manager of my co-working space is having sex there while I’m working. Help!


Episode Notes

Prudence is joined this week by Jasmine Sanders, a writer from the South Side of Chicago.

Prudie and Sanders dig into letters about what to do when neighbors treat your private yard like a public park, what to consider when your husband insists that both of you live with his mom indefinitely, how to handle your concert pianist roommate’s relentless practices, how to tell your parents that you write erotica for a living, whether there is a polite way to ask your potential partners about their mental health, and what actions to take when the manager of your coworking space uses it as a place to have sex.
