My mom's been hospitalized or in a nursing home for over a month and it falls to me to check the mail every day. Yesterday she got a piece of mail, one of those official-looking things where the edges are sealed with little perforated strips that you tear off to open it, covered with announcements like "second attempt" and "to be opened by addressee only". Ooooh, scary! No return address to give a clue from whence it came. I ran out to the home to visit her and we opened the piece together. It was one of those "your auto warranty is about to expire, get a new one now" mailings from some company that has nothing to do with the manufacturer. When I looked at the outside again, it did say 'FORD', and our car is a Ford, but she got it a year old (it's a former renta-car). But what really got my goat was that the mailing was addressed to my mom in her maiden name
which she hasn't used in over 60 years! Enough to make you a little paranoid, isn't it?
