Be nice

Sometimes, parents send implicit, ambiguous messages to their kids in which expectations are unclear and consequences are unspecified.

And sometimes they do not, as exemplified by an e-mail an acquaintance of mine recently got from his mother. It said:

FYI, [your stepdad] and I will probably take over a time share from some friends of ours who are ready to get rid of it. We just assume the monthly fee, not the big up front purchase. The base property is at N. Myrtle [Beach, S.C.], but you can actually go to other locations all over the US, Canada, Mexico, Caribbean, and even Europe. It is a deed, so can be passed on by inheritance. So be nice to us.

OK, then.
