Should I Pack My Summer Clothes For E-hell?

July 6, 2016

I live in a private development with a drive-up security gate in a high tourism area. On a holiday weekend, we can expect a backlog of cars of people visiting their vacation homes. This past weekend I pulled into the line of cars waiting to be let in. The waiting lane has painted lines and […]

Everyone But You

July 5, 2016

I’m at a loss on how to respond to this situation. I am moving from my current city to New York, about a 5 hour drive away. I wanted “one last hurrah”, so I invited friends from college who live in the city, as well as friends who I see regularly but live a little […]

Asking admin and e-hellions for etiquette advice. I’ve been going to the same hairdresser for more than 20 years.

I adore anything spa related and, since I’m both frugal and picky about what I use, I’ve gotten very good at making my own products and doing my own stuff at home with good results. A friend of mine knew this and so I was thrilled to be invited via Facebook to a spa night […]

The Extreme Opposite of A Special Snowflake Guest Is Not A Hostess’ Dream Come True

June 22, 2016

I have a story about someone who is, in fact, a good friend, but I would think twice about inviting them over as a guest again.  Not because they are needy or greedy: rather the opposite. It was quite uncomfortable, and I am curious what my e-hell peers have to say about the matter. See, […]
