If someone gave you a letter and said, "do not open this unless something happens to me"

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Would you open it anyway?

I would to see if I could help before that "something" happened

I have one of those letters from my MIL and that was over 10 years ago. It is still unopened, certified, and in my file cabinet

I have not and would not open it. It's an understandable thing given my former profession.

I'd read it. I'm nosey and I can't help it. BUT I'd never tell a soul what was in it(unless otherwise instructed in the letter).

I would not be able to not open it.

I can't even wait until Christmas morning to peek at presents.

No. That's what my mom did. We didn't read it until she died. My brother actually read it I still don't know what was in it but bits and pieces.

No. Obviously they trust me. I would not want to violate that trust. Also, there is the issue of plausible deniability. If I don't know what's in there and no one knows I have it, then I am not accountable for that knowledge and am not in as much danger or worry.

I would ask questions....if i dont read it and something does happen and i read it am i going to regret not opening it? If not then i will keep it safe an wait. But if your gonna off yourself then make me read that your sorry then dont bother giving me the letter.

I wouldn't read it. There are actually letters to my brother and I at my Memere's house from when she had a very risky surgery. I saw them but I am not tempted to open them. She is here with us and for that I am grateful. If she had something she wanted us to know after her passing I would want to know it after. I would want to hear her final thoughts after the fact when I couldn't get those words back because I would already know what they say.
