Primo, if you will recall, said he needed to think about being a trustee on TedsSon's other trust.
Ted did not take it well.
Note that Ted would like very much to talk about the issues, as if there is a decision to be reached by consensus. He does not appear to understand that Primo makes the decisions and does not care what Ted thinks.
Thanks, Primo (and cc: TedsWife). My answers in black below. Please note that I would prefer a phone call to a (always perfunctory and monologue) email. Even people who work with/ for me know that setting a time and having a discourse is preferable to a typed-out dissertation. I always found that communicating with Dad and Doris verbally or in person was far superior to typed correspondence; however, as this is your preferred medium, here you go: [irrelevant links]
Ooops! Looks like I did not include Ted's "stunned" response. Here it is:
Quick note, if I may: I'm stunned that you would not want to be a trustee of TedsSon's estate. Family is everything.
