DEAR ABBY: The other day I had to leave my house in the morning because my son’s school called. He wasn’t feeling well and wanted to come home. I just threw on what I had worn the day before as I headed out the door. On the way out to my car, my neighbor yelled out, “Isn’t that the same outfit you wore yesterday?” I didn’t answer because I thought it was none of her business. Should I have explained the situation? — IN A HURRY IN CALIFORNIA

DEAR IN A HURRY: You were not obligated to explain anything to your neighbor — who may have just been trying to be friendly, or may be overly interested in your attire. Unless her intrusiveness escalates, let it go!
