Hmmm.... just as every new president of the Seamstresses Guild receives the honorific "mrs", could it be that the Guild enforcers receive the title "Auntie" in return for services rendered - that "Agony Aunt" is not so much an individual as a title, and the mantle is passed on to a new generation of Guild enforcer coming up the ranks, owing to death or retirement... this might explain why a woman who is a spry seventy in Snapcase's time is still healthy and seemingly doing the same job thirty years on.--AgProv 20:12, 29 April 2007 (CEST)
