Advice GoddessAmy Alkon Dispenses Advice

Amy Alkon, The Advice Goddess

Syndicated columnist and author, Amy Alkon, also known as the Advice Goddess, helped set me straight on several issues of common courtesy—which, as it turns out, are not so common.

Her career as the Advice Goddess began in New York City when, as a prank, she and a few friends began dispensing advice for free.  It mushroomed from there into a syndicated column that appears in over 100 newspapers—including the Ventura County Reporter—and a book titled, I See Rude People: One Woman’s Battle to Beat Some Manners Into Impolite Society.

Describing herself as a ”costly punisher,” Amy has a strong sense of justice and will dispense small kindnesses to strangers while battling transgressors at great personal cost and little perceived benefit to herself.

Amy shared some of her most memorable examples of how she attacks impolite people in society. The greatest tip she gave was to use to find the names and address of people—great tool.
