I have a problem with an unwanted guest who has overstayed his welcome. Hospitality is a biggie with me, but this guy really tears my turban. How can I get him to leave? Signed, Omar in Kabul, (aka: Anxious in Afghanistan)

There's no more prickly problem for the gracious host than yours, but here are a few ideas:

1)   Without saying anything rude, start yawning and looking at your watch.
2)   Begin cleaning up.
3)   Politely excuse yourself, go to the rest room and start running a bath.

After a few "hints" like these, your unwanted guest should get the message!
