Recently I received a mailing that promoted the services of a local
It was addressed to Our Friends At...
I usually ignore these mailings and recycle them after a quick read. But this time I thought:
Friends? I don't think so.
First, there's only one person here. That's me. It's been that way for years now. If you were my friend, you would've known that.
Second, this friendship is a step below the friendships I have with some people on Facebook. I may not have directly seen or talked with many of them for decades, but at the least we know each other.
I would prefer being addressed as Resident on the instead of this false friendship.
