I don't know if it is a learned behavior of my daughter's or not. I always call her or anyone else back within a few days at the most (same with email). So it is not learned from me. She may have learned it from my family. They are like this. My daughter is 27, and living in a different state and working. She is doing very well in all areas of her life and is otherwise a great daughter.
When I spoke to her about it she said it was no big deal and she was just laid back about things like that. I told her that being laid back and being inconsiderate were 2 different things. I don't mind waiting up to a week, but a month or longer seems uncaring to me. I don't speak to my family because of things like this. I couldn't stand the hypocrisy of being strangers throughout the year and one big happy family at holidays. Please tell me I am not crazy! None of my friends have family patterns like this. Thanks.
