The Yeti refuses to watch NBC’s “The Sing-Off.”

Each week, the Yeti reaches into his mailbag and answers advice questions from people who can’t solve their own puny problems. Send your questions to, comment on the Yeti online or chat up the Yeti on Twitter — he’s @doctoryeti there — and if you’re lucky, you’ll receive your own hairy response from the wisest beast of all.

Dear Yeti,

I am having a really hard time choosing an appropriate Christmas gift for my boss. See, I really need to suck up, because I’m pretty sure layoffs are on the way, but I also don’t want to alienate my coworkers. The boss is a lady in her mid-40s, and she’s really into her two kids, golf, computer flight simulators and I think some kind of dance class she drags her husband to.

I don’t know about any of that crap. What do I get her to ensure I keep the job while still looking cool to my friends in the office?

— Will

Human Will:

Get boss lady fancy bottle of whiskey or vodka. But human siphon off about third of it and replace with appropriately tinted flavorless liquid, or maybe just water.

Then human serve siphoned-off whiskey to colleague and exchange tacit high-five.

Congratulation on your long-lasting career, office human. Yeti await his own bottle of whiskey that human plan to send in thanks for genius advice.
