When I was little I had to write thank you notes. My mum insisted.
I wrote thank yous for gifts or outings or other generosities, and didn’t realize that I was being groomed to do so in my adult life.
Today, I rarely receive thank yous for gifts I’ve given, and as I polled the office I discovered that I am not alone. I think the thank you note is facing extinction!
Now, I could climb onto my soapbox in my 4 inch heels and expound upon the importance of thank you notes, but I have managed to simplify things in a way that even Cole & Cliff would be proud of.
The least you can do is thank a wedding well-wisher in writing for spending time and money on you.
