I know that I’m a little late in responding to this, but I get the
digest so I’m a little behind –
I do really appreciate thank you notes. It shows that the person
appreciates the gift I got them or something I did for them or at least
that their Mother made them write the note.
but i ‘appreciate’ them, they are not a must. i do not by gifts or do
things for people for the recognition or thank you note. i do these
things because i want to – thank you note or not. and if i do
something or buy something for someone, i do not hold it against them
for all of eternity or punish their children by not sending them gifts
if i do not receive a thank you note.
i would be a very selfish person if the only reason i did something for
someone was to receive the recognition and gratitude – don’t you think?
if you thought when giving a gift is receiving a thank you note, then
you probably need to rethink why you are going to give the gift. just
keep it and write yourself a note – that’s about the only way you are
going to be satisfied.
