Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: No-good co-worker Good Morning Family, I know I may misspell some words today because I am very pissed! Steve, this is more for you becasue I know Shirley is going to try to go about this another way (Sorry, Shirley.). I have this co-worker — She is a plus-sized, very cute young lady. I have never talked badly about this girl, even when others have. I have even told her myself that she’s a pretty girl and not to let anyone tell her differently. This lil’ @#$%! said she was trying to hook me up with a guy. I thought her intentions were good, until later I found out (from the guy) that she told him I was an easy lay and to see if it is as good as she may think. OMSJ! I could expect that from a man, but from a woman? I’m a plus-sized (size 14) woman myself. She’s a size 22 at the least. I want to go straight up to her and bang her in her face, but I need my job! Who the heck does that? She took a conversation that we had about things we’ve done with our men and ran with it. I never brag about what I do in the bedroom, but I never doubt my “12 Play” either. Plus, this is not the first time she has tried to put me out there like that. Steve, please help because I’m really hurt and pissed! I guess a snake can be a male or female! Oh, yeah, and the worst part of it is that she told me the guy she was “hooking” me up with was just a “homeboy.” I came to find out that they have had sexual relations together on a regular basis and he is married. We did wear protction but still, that’s just nasty! Here I am thinking she was cool, and she’s not. I dealt with this guy for months prior to leaving him alone. And no, he didn’t get it like he/she thought he would. It took time!
