Dear Short Answers:
A distant relative recently passed away and the man’s daughter (my second cousin) asked me if there was anything that I would like as a memento of my “uncle.”  I wrote her back that I would love one of his watches since he was an avid watch collector and had many wonderful pieces.  A few weeks later, I received a watch in the mail with a bill for $2,000!!!  I was flabbergasted!!  Should I just ignore the bill and see what happens or should I put the whole thing back in the mail to my cousin?

Dear JEP:
Pack it up and send it back with a lovely note saying that you “misunderstood” her question and explain that although you would have enjoyed a memento, the cost is too dear.
