In Defense Of Carolyn Bourne, Who Sent A Rude Email To Her Future Daughter-in-Law

The Internets are all aflutter this week after a few emails a British woman named Carolyn Bourne sent to her future daughter-in-law Heidi Withers went viral. The crux of the emails?

I happen to agree with pretty much every thing Bourne has to say about manners.

Check out her letter after the jump. Keep reading »
