In the ‘Friendship’ section below I posted a couple threads about a friend I’ve had for a long time (decades) who has been controlling our communication (mainly phone calls), most likely because she’s under her husband’s thumb.

Huh?? I didn't say or imply that I thought your comment was snarky.

I don’t think I implied that the act of accepting some type of benefit or inheritance was/is greedy – in and of itself – nor did I say they should refuse whatever she may have left to them.

It honestly wasn't meant to be snarky! You tried for as long as you could.... But its time to put your time & energy into something you want, instead of her crazy emails, be/c I don't think you will ever be able to figure out why she does what she does... KWIM???

If there is a financial motive, it's because the deceased woman chose to leave (or took no action to prevent her son from inheriting) her assets. If she didn't want them to have access she could have specified it in a will. Apparently, it wasn't something that concerned her (or didn't concern her enough to prevent it). With that in mind, I don't see how accepting an inheritance (assuming there even IS one) would be considered being greedy.

My daughter's best friend is Jewish, and there was some reason she had to quickly get her hands on the death certificate when her father died...some religious significance???

lizmvr & helga – Believe it or not, I’m going to give thought to what you’ve said.

It IS weird, but I completely agree with LIZMVR. If you want nothing to do with her, then why does any of this even make any difference to you?

Sounds like you are STILL unhappy with the way that your relationship with her turned out & you are now looking for ways to make her look like a nut --NOT THAT SHE'S NOT GIVING YOU PLENTY TO WORK WITH!!!


I have had a few of those friends. You try, you try, you get frustrated....you say you're done but nonetheless you're still frustrated or even mad! I totally get it....but don't let this wacky broad take up any more of your time!

Block her emails & be done with her!!
