I’m pretty sure when a mother agrees to, or suggests naming a child after the parent….It’s a clever preemptive excuse to open that child’s mail.
My mom does this, with everything.
“You got a sprint bill. I thought it might have been your dad’s, so I opened it. Why are you late?”
“You got a bill from geico. I thought your dad switched our insurance, so I opened it. You pay too much.”
The last one Pisses me off. She knows Damn well he won’t do that shit without talking to her first.
