      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.
