Dear Short Answers:
I bought a duplex with a family member. I went over how I expected my privacy and work schedule to not be interfered with. It’s now a problem just two months into it, with unreasonable requests being made of my time and frequent arguments. How do I get this to stop?

Dear Annoyed:
Don’t get angry –  just be very clear. Tell your relative that they are running the risk of spoiling what you had hoped would be a mutually beneficial arrangement. Draw your boundaries, and keep smiling.
