Thank you’s

I have an issue with people who don’t say thank you. I suppose it’s old fashioned, but I don’t think it’s outdated. It seems like people only send thank you notes for wedding presents any more. I think it’s important to send notes for any gift, even small ones. It’s a way to acknowledge that you got the gift and appreciate the gesture. I’m more likely to send someone another gift if I get a thank you note. An example is my niece and nephew. I used to always send something on each of their birthdays and Christmas, but I never got even a phone call or an email to say they got the packages. I have become pretty forgetful about their gifts mostly because I feel like they aren’t appreciated. It’s unfortunate, but I don’t have the spare cash to send a present to a kid who doesn’t appreciate it. I do practice what I preach and I will be sending out all of my Christmas thank you notes, even to people I only visited, because I value their time. So, send out the notes if you want to stay on the nice list!
