Meredith realized her relationship with her boyfriend is over. He's immature, doesn't pay her the attention she needs, etc. However, he has hinted at some gifts he's already gotten for her and they're really nice. Does she stick it out through the holidays or end it now?
What's the longest you've had something that shouldn't be in your body? An hour? A day? Week? What about 5 years? If you can manage to make it through the day without getting an earbud stuck inside you for 5 years… you're doing OK.

Ben is hatching a plan to take advantage of the change in the mayor's office to get a day proclaimed in our name...and the ball is in motion!

Jessica is wanting to get a tattoo honoring her 2 kids with a number "7" because of their birthdates. However, she's been dating a widower who has a daughter of his own. They've lived in a blended family for 2 years, so would his daughter feel left out? What should she do?
Tara is still friends with her ex, even though she's made it CLEAR they are not ever getting back together. BUT now his mom is reaching out to her that she needs to stop "stringing him along"... should she tell her ex that his mom is meddling?! #GroupTherapy
Some burglars break into homes looking for pricey jewelry . . . expensive electronics . . . and maybe attempt to crack a safe. Others have more modest aspirations.

Got a message from a listener who is upset a coworker always requests and gets a certain week around the holidays off. Their boss says "work it out amongst yourselves..." They don't want to say anything to this person so as to avoid conflict. What do they do??

Job interviews are STRESSFUL - it's like going on a 1st or 2nd date with a potential boyfriend or girlfriend. There's money on the line, a new career path/identity, and new coworkers to deal with. Crazy stress. So what's the most awkward job interview you've been on?

Ben and Kelly Court was in session again when a listener comes to us asking if he should be able to keep his female childhood friend in his life despite his wife's wishes. It was a Ben vs. Brittany battle started by a repeated request in TBT and a Setting the Bar story surrounding a "meat sword"? Yes.

Kelly was uncomfortable in three segments on the show...can you spot them? Got a DM from "Darrell" needing some assistance in the smooching department, then in Group Therapy, Heather had a unique request from her fiance for their wedding and the search for love takes us to Papa John's and college. Plus...a new game Ben made up!
Heather's fiancé wants to have his ex-wife, with whom he has a daughter with, to be his "Best Man" when they get married. They're still friends and Heather doesn't even have a real problem with it, but she's worried what others will think and wants to make everyone happy!
