I found this on Yahoo this morning. Enjoy….
DEAR ABBY: My mother was recently invited to a shower and was given specific instructions not to put her name on the gift. The reason? The honoree plans to issue one general thank-you to everyone because she “doesn’t have the time” to send individual thank-you notes.
Abby, if someone takes the time and spends the money to buy a gift, shouldn’t the recipient be gracious enough to write a personal note? — THOUGHT I’D HEARD IT ALL IN OHIO
DEAR THOUGHT: Of course she should! If the honoree is so busy that she plans to forgo thanking her guests for their generosity, she should save everyone’s time, money and effort and forgo the shower.

That. is. awful. I would give her an etiquette book since it’ll be anonymous and highlight the passages about thank you’s.

Wow, theres not a chance in hell that I would attend a shower and spend my hard earned money on someone who won’t even take 3 minutes to write me a thank you.

I definitely agree with bakerella – the etiquette book would be such a nice gift.
I also agree with you CaitMarae – I know showers typically mean GIFTS, but if you’re so busy you can’t even write a thank you note for someone spending time and money on you, perhaps you shouldn’t have a shower.

@bakerella: I totally agree – that would be the gift to the bride from me!

Blech. I hate the attitude of some brides who think the world revolves around them.

Wow. And I thought I’d seen/heard just about everything in the realm of weddings.

Wow! I can’t believe someone would do that!

Uh no…the least she can do is write individual Thank You notes to people. Rude.

Wow – there are no words.

uh… What does SMH mean?
And yea, I agree with everyone else, terribly rude. Just don’t have the shower if you’re so “busy”.
