Dear Queenie,

My sister and her husband own a timeshare in St. Maarten and invited me to stay with them for a week this summer, but when we started talking about specific dates when I could come down they made a point of telling me they would expect me to pay for my own food and liquor.

Queenie, I would love to have a Caribbean vacation, but I don’t like being taken advantage of!—Angry brother

Dear Brother,

Just who is taking advantage of whom? You expect your sister and brother-in-law to feed you and provide you with free drinks as well as free lodging? I suggest you do some research on hotel prices in St. Maarten and learn just what a bargain your sister and brother-in-law have offered you!
