This would only happen to me!
I have a very large family.
So large, that apparently when someone dies, not everyone finds out.
So when someone else dies, I END UP SENDING A SYMPATHY CARD TO A DEAD PERSON.
Is there a more dysfunctional family than this? I can't imagine there is.
I sent this e-mail to extended family:
I know we are spread across the country, but would some of you PLEASE notify me when someone like Uncle L dies.
I sent him a sympathy card about Aunt L dying! And I am so sorry, Grandma, I would have sent you a card had I known.
As a friend of mine put it, "That would only happen to you!"
Another friend reminded me, "You are supposed to send sympathy cards to the survivors - not the person who died!"
