Bullied by a Boss

Dear Dolly,

I’ve been working for a wealthy business entrepreneur (no names, but his handkerchiefs are monogrammed with the initials H.V.) I was recently promoted to chief clerk, but was neglected the accompanying increase in salary. How does a young man get up the gumption to ask his curmudgeonly employer for a raise?

Sincerely, Yellow-bellied in Yonkers

Dear Yonkers,

I cannot call you yellow-bellied because I am sure you are not!  These things have a way of working themselves out.  You may have a guardian angel on your side.  Give this a week and see what happens.
