This is not sent for discussion, if you agree forward it, if you don't, fine, delete it. I don't want to know one way or the other. By me forwarding it, you know how I feel.
But I'm really starting to get annoyed at the number of these emails I'm getting from people who should know better. Maybe I don't want to know your opinion if you don't want to know mine. It really doesn't seem fair to expect me to not offend you if you don't care that you might offend me.
So, what to do? I've been simply deleting and ignoring them, but somehow it leaves me feeling angry and frustrated. I suppose family peace is a noble undertaking, but why is it the offender doesn't feel that same dedication to family? Or maybe he is just unthinking; I'd hate to think he's uncaring.
Can it be that he really doesn't understand this might be offensive? He knows that he and I don't agree on political issues, and he has stopped sending overtly political emails. But somehow he doesn't understand that we might not see eye-to-eye on other issues, as well.
I have to ponder this for a while and decide how to approach it. Family feuds just aren't my cup of tea.
