Happy Mother’s Day To All UK Mothers10 March 2013
Once, two or three years ago, I used Western Union to send money to the UK (Can’t remember why. Banking problems I think). I’ve never heard from them since.
On Friday, I received a ‘spam’ email from them reminding me that today (Sunday 10th) is Mother’s Day in the UK and “It’s not too late to send her a Mother’s Day gift she’ll really love”.
Yes it is. She died nearly two years ago. Six days after Mother’s Day actually.
I thought this was a strange email – why would they presume I HAVE a mother in the UK? The money I sent over there wasn’t going to her and even if it were, it wouldn’t have said “Mother” anywhere. Why would they presume I have a mother anywhere?
But if YOU have a mother, give her a hug from me and wish her a very Happy Mother’s Day.
