OK, this annoys me.
Everytime I have a grandparents/relatives birthday coming up my dad not only tells me on the phone but also sends me an email the day of to remind me to call so and so because it's their birthday. I find this extremely irritating, especially since something I will call and get no answer and forget to call back and then he send me email, did you call yet? Also, every Christmas I make family calendar for everyone, with all the birthdays. I know when they are. I make the calendars personalized for every family!
Yes, sometimes I can forget, but not often. This past week was my birthday, my grandma called me and said her card was in the mail (late). I got the card and didn't call her to thanks her, (are you supposed to?) and dad sends an email from his blackberry to my work yesterday to say, did you call to say thanks? I tell him I called and there was no answer, grandma's a busy lady, I'll try again. I feel like he's forcing me to do this! Then he sends me another email, Oh I hope you can get a hold of her, shes hard to get a hold of. ENOUGH Dad!
They are REALLY getting to me with this. What would you say to nip this in the bud? I know they do this to my older brother as well. It's not like we are a close knit family or anything and I dont know what this is all about.
