Awkward situations

Sometimes it’s easy to know what to do. Should you say hello to your son’s kindergarten teacher, for instance, when you see her on the street? Others times, it’s a little harder: What if you bumped into Miss Judy at a bar? Now, what if it’s a topless bar — and junior’s teacher is dancing there?

Deciding whether to speak to your Wall Street acquaintances about their misfortunes is like that, too.
