Dear Ann Landers,
I just read the letter from "Ohio Nightmare," whose in-laws repeatedly showed up every Sunday morning unannounced and uninvited. I had the very same problem, and it drove me crazy -- until I hit on a solution. When all else failed, I decided to answer the door buck-naked. My wife was horrified, and it took a lot of nerve, but I did it. After three more visits, the problem was solved. The in-laws never showed up without phoning first. Pass it on, Ann. -- Jack in Bayside, N.Y.

Dear Jack,
Nothing succeeds like success. Savor the victory.

A Note from Margo:
Hi! It's Margo here. I'd love to know what you think of the letters -- and the answers!

Also, any additional thoughts you might have. Thanks!

Maryann's Comment
It would have been a lot easier to park your car down the street every Sunday and not answer the door.

Our Reader to Reader Question of the Week:

Dear Readers,
, whatever they needed I provided. What really hurt my son and I the most was the obituary - we were not mentioned at all. Our friends (mine and hers) were appalled. I was embarrassed and upset for not just me, but for my son-who loved her also. I never been so upset. Her x-husband put his wife and kids and their grandchildren in the obituary, who my girlfriend barely knew. They live an hour away from us. I know its silly to be mad over a little section of the newspaper, but it still hurts. Will time let this devastating loss of her and this article ever go away? I am so angry at this whole situation, its not like we can go and rewrite an obituary notice.

Tell us what you think?
