Re: Unrepsonsive Relatives
In Response To: Unrepsonsive Relatives ()
I'm laughing, Alice. Not because this is funny but because it is all too familiar. Why do people ignore you when you're just trying to connect or ask them a few questions to clarify HOW we are related?
My husband has a couple of aunts who he attended school with and I was asking him to call her. Get some info from her. Let's go visit, etc. He reminded me that this was his snobbish aunt who had been raised by his half-sister to not mingle with certain people. He says he guesses he and his siblings are among those "certain people" she chooses to avoid. Sad.
But I'm like you. I'm not related to her, and I'm gonna call her. So there! She can like or lump it, but I'm gonna get some info from her. Now!
Good luck to you.
