Dear Miss Know it All,

How can I find the courage to ask my boss for a vacation? I work for someone in their home so it’s not like I get regular holidays off and the like.

Tired

Dear Tired,

This is the Chinese Year of the Tiger, did you know that? So time to take the tiger by the tail and summon up the courage to talk to your boss. Is there someone you know who could fill in for you while you take some time off? Giving the boss that option will help you for sure.
