by Rod Smith

HUSBAND N I SEPERATED BECOUSE OF PARENTS HE LIVES WITH HIS PARENTS I LIVE WITH MINE AND MY DAUGHTER WE ONLY GET TO SEE HIM ON WEEKENDS AND THAT TO HE WORK AN SO DO I WE FIGHT ALOT BECOUSE HE RATHER US COME WEEKENDS AND WE SPEND TIME AT HIS MUMS THAN US FINDING A PLACE TO STAY AS A FAMILY HE SAYS IM UNFAIR AND SELFISH IF I HAVE CLOTHS TO WASH N CANT MAKE TO GO BY HIM AND HE DOESNT LIKE THE IDEA OF HIM COMING TO SEE US BECOUSE HIS PARENTS DNT GET TO SPEND TIME WITH MY DAUGHTER HE RATHER THEY SPEND TIME WITH HER THAN WE HAVING A FAMILY DAY OUT TOGETHER

I have not “fixed” the above letter. I have published it exactly as received. I want my treasured readership to see how many, far from all, letters arrive most days.

To the careless writers:

Using all capital letters does not get my attention. It blinds me. The only reason I don’t delete your letter is because I know you are in pain.

Some punctuation, even a comma or two, might clarify your meaning.

If you are careless writing to a stranger, I wonder how you treat those whom you say you love.
