I have a few questions/stories about "thank you notes". (If this is in the wrong place, please move it, I'm sorry.)
1. I recieved more than one, (yes--crazy right), thank you note on hotel stationary. (If you could even call it that..I mean, honestly, it's the pads they leave for you to use...and in the end, most people take.)
2. This past holiday season, we (my DF and I) sent money to an out-of-town (state) niece he has. She just started college, and we thought that extra cash would be a good gift. Her actual response in a thank you note was "Thanks for the money, I could use a little more, afterall, I am a brand new college student! Love, XXXX" I've heard I should be happy we recieved one at all, but give me a break, that's insanely rude. I think she was trying to be funny, and it wasn't, at all.
3. Question: When writing a thank you note (many at once or just one), do you a) write a generalized thank you, handwritten, but not too personal. b) write a handwritten thank you, including updates and\or a story\memory\etc. c) type up a "newsletter" and sign your handwritten names at the bottom. d) something totally different.
I was just curious--I've been going through lots of thank you notes lately, and I was wondering what you guys thought about somethings, and if anyone else had stories??
