Do you have any relatives, or even friends, who are so weird in something they do that they just leave you scratching your head? For me, it's my aunt in another state. This habit of hers actually started with my mother, when I was a little kid, and she (the aunt) would write letters. Then when I got old enough to write to, she continued the "tradition" with me. She would often enclose things along with the letter that had no relevence to anything else, like totally random newspaper articles, or even other letters she got from people. Most of the time there was no explanation from her of why she sent it. I even remember one time when she wrote me and sent along a pretty racy poem with no explanation. I remember it because I was only about 12, and even then thought it was pretty inappropriate to send to a kid, especially a girl. :-o (I don't think I ever let Mom know about that one!) Now she does the same kinds of things with emails. She is always forwarding emails that either she wrote to someone else, or that she got from someone else. Most of the time, I don't know these people at all, and the emails are of zero interest to me. Lately that's all she does anymore. It's been ages since she's wrote a personal email to me. Instead, she just forwards second-hand stuff to me. Most of the time I just delete them now without reading. She didn't even respond when I emailed her a question about something she said in a forwarded email (about a health issue), so I stopped trying. She's not lonely. She has a husband, a daughter, and a bigger circle of friends than I do. So why does she do this? And, anyone else have weirdness like this from family/friends?
