Dear Ann Landers,
I was intrigued by the essay Rose Mula wrote about the unwelcome old woman who invaded her home. Please tell her that the same old woman has sneaked into my home, as well. I've noticed that she likes to nap. She started hogging the mattress for 15 minutes a day, and now it's up to an hour. I think it's disgraceful. I dare not leave her alone because she misplaces my datebook and makes me miss meetings. She is also a terrible clutterer. You should see what she has done to my study. Ask Rose to call this old lady and suggest that she find somebody else to annoy. I've had it. -- Mec in Massachusetts

Dear Mec in Mass.,
I was surprised at the number of readers who wrote to say the old lady had visited them, as well. She certainly does get around. I hope she sees this column, and will honor your request to find someone else to annoy.
