Thank You No More?

I often feel that the idea of Thanking people for gestures of kindness has completely gone out the window. Please do not get me wrong, I never do anything for anyone expecting anything in return; but I was brought up that you thank people for gifts and general gestures of kindness. Not that I need to be thanked for every little card I send, but it is nice to know that someone received the gift or item- especially if you sent it in the mail.

Thank you notes, do people even send them still? I love snail mail, and always will. I will also encourage my future children that it is the right thing to do.

I actually have a sign hanging in my cubicle that says this:

Just a small reminder that people do not have to help you and when they do it should be recognized.  


  1. This is one of my biggest pet peeves, Jess! Thank you notes should not be optional...they're basic good manners! Eeesh!

  2. I hate when people don't have manners!!! So annoying!


Thanks for the love,
