Thank You Notes
I almost never write thank you letters, especially to people I don’t know. The reason I’m writing this letter is because last week I was pretty upset. I was in a rush to go to work and I was running late. I grabbed a letter I was going to mail and stuffed it in my coat. The letter, already addressed and stamped, had a $55 gift card to Target for a friend in Texas. She had won the gift card through a contest I had put together. I quickly ran to catch my bus. Almost every day I take the #5 Metro Transit bus to work. Once I got to my stop at WCCO Radio, I reached into my pocket and felt nothing, the letter was gone.
With graduation and wedding seasons going strong, many people are giving and receiving gifts. And, with those gifts, many of us were taught the proper response is a hand-written thank you note. But, a recent survey found 67 percent of adults think the ability to write a thank you note has died out as texting and emailing has become more popular.
