Welcome To The Bitchery

Am I a jerk for not caring?

I work with one of my aunts and she is constantly updating me on the lives of various relatives I rarely. When she is telling me these things, it takes all my strength to not yell "I don't care".

I don't care that her niece is going on a business trip. I don't care that her nephew is dating someone new. I don't care that her step daughter, who is my aunts' age, lives 8 hours away and I've never met, got a new hobby. I don't need to know about every single gig her son has booked with his band. I just... don't care...

Is there something wrong with me? Should I really care about the things these people are doing? I always figured that if someone wants to know what's going on with another person, they would ask.
